A Secret Garden Thank You Pocket Card w/Tag

I've been wanting to buy
Graphic 45's new Botanical Tea collection, but instead I ordered Stationer's Desk from Prima. So to pacify my longing for some G45 flowery goodness, I pulled out what I have left of the Secret Garden papers and created a pocket card with a tag insert.

I wanted a place to tuck
a little something into a thank you card, so I made it a pocket card. Such a simple design and quick to do! I cut a 12" x 12" sheet into a piece 4" wide... scored at 2" and 7 1/2" and folded. I took my idea from this design here on the Sizzix blog.

I used the Doily Lace border 
punch by Martha Stewart on the top edge of my pocket and added a bit of lace and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I fussy cut the rose and popped it up with 3-D foam squares. The flowers are from I Am Roses. The foliage was cut with my new Alterations Spring Greenery die, shaped with my tweezers, then shaded with Walnut Stain DI. I added a wide eyelet to the tag and looped on a piece of light peach seam binding that I distressed with Brushed Corduroy.

Have a wonderful Sunday, friends!
We've had a beautiful sunny day here in Ohio although it snowed on and off this morning and looked like we were going to have another gloomy day. Ahhhh... love that sun!

Thanks for stopping by!
