Thanks So Much Card Pocket

Yesterday I shared my favorite card from the 2010 Convention Make & Take projects, the Thank You Watercolor Card. Today I will be sharing what's called a Card Pocket. It's a really cute idea that I intend to use again in the future, so keep your eye out! :) 

This project used the same Small Open-End envelope as the Watercolor Card yesterday. We just altered it a bit to be able to put 3x3 cards and Mini Square envelopes in either side of it.

Step 1: Seal the end of the envelope.
Step 2: Trim off a small strip off one of the long sides of the envelope.
Step 3: Open up the long side of the envelope that you just cut. Punch 2 half circles on the inside flap of the envelope. (1-1/4" Circle punch)
Step 4: Fold card in half.
And then you have your Card Pocket!

It should look like this when you are finished:
We used a 3x3 square of Real Red from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper to make a layer on the front of the envelope. We used Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Real Red Stampin' Write markers to color on the stamp and stamped it onto a piece of 2" x 2" Whisper White card stock and popped that up off of the DSP using dimensionals. Ran a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon under the Whisper White layer and tied a bow on the side.

The front of the Card Pocket now looks like this:

We then stamped 3 more of the So Many Thanks stamp onto 3 more 2"x2" pieces of Whisper White card stock and placed them onto a 3"x3" piece of colored card stock.

The Marina Mist card looks like this:

We put the other two onto a piece of Real Red card stock and a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.

The set of them looks like this when finished:

And your finished product will look like this:

Then you open up the envelope and put 3 Mini Square Whisper White envelopes in one side and the 3"x3" cards in the other side and you have a cute little set of Thanks So Much cards.

Here's a real quick rundown of what products were used in this project:

Stamps: So Many Thanks single stamp

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Real Red and Early Espresso Stampin' Write markers
