CropStop Pocket Card Tutorial

As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE making Pocket Cards. So today, I've shared a quick tutorial on how to make them over on the CropStop Blog.  It's easy and fun, and allows you to create something a bit more than a card, but is still super cost effective and a real treat for its recipient.  The other great thing about Pocket Cards is that they provide you with a cute little pocket for tucking in a gift card, cash, photos, or a sweet note for the special person for whom it is intended.  I just LOVE them.  You can see the step-by-step instructions over on the CropStop Blog. I used some more great CropStop supplies on my pocket, including a bundle of Petaloo Sugared Berries in Pine Green, which I absolutely LOVE in every gorgeous color CropStop carries! I also added a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Paper Clip.   You'll also see that I tucked in a Manilla Shipping Tag that's tied with May Arts Natural Burlap String, and there's a little tag attached to it that's held with a sweet little Tea Stained Clothes Pin.  The tiny tag is stamped in Tim Holtz Inks - both Bundled Sage and Soot Black
You can also tuck some candy or a journalling tag inside the pocket.  The options for decorating and tucking things inside your Pocket Cards are endless.  This really is a SUPER EASY project that you can do, and CropStop has everything you need to create a cute Pocket Card of your own.  I hope you will stop by CropStop today to check out all the great products they offer.

And, don't forget to stop by and play along in our current challenge.  We LOVE having you join us, and you could be this month's lucky winner of some CropStop goodies!  Have fun creating your Pocket Cards, too. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Blessings,
Karen
