I had loads of bits left over from the card I made on my post Blue your Cares Away (you know, the one with my undwear adorning it) which were still out on my desk so I added a rustic colour paper to it and made the card below.
The swap required die cuts to be used so I made the flowers and leaves from my Crealies
dies Creative flowers CL CF 25 and creative shapes CL CS 16. The sentiment was produced in word. The card was an odd shape and would not fit a standard envelope size so I had the idea of making a pocket to hold the card. I had seen how to do it in Simply Cards Magazine. The backing paper and the image came from my Ooh La La Creations Passion for fashion CD . I ran off another sheet of the blue paper and made the pocket to fit below.
I added another die cut flower, punched a semi circle from the top on each side (to make it easier to withdraw the card) and tied with satin ribbon.
