Friday Blog Project - Double Pocket Card

Hello, Happy International Woman's Day to you! It's Heidi here and I am sharing a feminine, flowery & vintage blog project today, just right for that special Mum in your life!
I have made a Double Pocket Card using the gorgeous little stamp set called 'Heart's & Flower's' and 'Daisy Dot' alphabet set.  Both sets are available on the website, via the links below.

Here is the inside of the card and tags made.
I have coloured the lavender in a lovely vintage pink to match the paper used.

I have used the 'Daisy Dot' alphabet and have paper-pieced the wording 'MUM' on my card.  The border stamp is great to use on its own and matches perfectly with the other stamps in the set.

 Here is a list of products used and photos/instructions on how to make my card.
Products Used :

Promarkers (£1.70 each) - Pastel Beige, Khaki, Sunkissed Pink, Sandstone, Caramel, Satin, Dusky Rose & Ice Grey I.
My Mind's Eye Paper - 'Tickled Pink' - 'Delicate'
Magnolia Dies - Butterfly & Border
'Go Kreate' Swirl Die
Momento 'Rich Cocoa' Inpad
Hole Punch, Cream lace, white pearls and Double-sided tape from stash
Instructions :
(1) Cut paper to meaure : 29cms x 21.5cms.   Die cut three white shapes using Swirly Die.
(2) Stamp up images onto shapes and colour in with Promarkers and edge with brown inkpad. Stamp up letters onto paper, cut out and edge with ink.

(3) Die cut, border and butterfly.  Cut lace and ink with brown inkpad.

(3) Fold A4 paper in half horizontally and vertically. Make a cut from right edge into centre of paper only.
(4) Fold down top corner slightly on right of paper, bottom corner on right and top corner to centre of fold on left-hand side, as shown.

(5) Fold in half and then bottom to top, stick edges together, this forms your pocket card. Ink all edges with inkpad.
(6) Punch holes in tags, thread lace through. Stick all elements down onto card, add pearls.

We do hope you like the blog project today and to all you 'Mum's in blogland, have a wonderful day on Sunday.
