tart & tangy

Now, this was fun! I finally decided to try one of the neat Double Pocket Card with Flap Front. I've linked you to the tutorial on Barb Mullikin's blog. It is pretty easy to follow. I would suggest that you are careful when you score the designer paper (at least SU!'s) as I tore mine at the bottom. So, do you think the cherry is okay with the flowers? I should have used a flower are something, huh?
So, here is the outside. The ribbon is some ribbon that I got as a thank you from an Ellen Hutson order that I placed. It is lovely. I think it is satin. It is definitely a little thicker than SU!'s taffeta.
And here is the inside. Now I have to say that I don't much care for the inside. I do think it would be better if I decorated it a little more and probably will do so if I send this to someone. I just cut two pieces of Real Red cardstock and layered white PaperTrey cardstock on top for the inserts. I would definitely think this is a great presentation for a gift card w/sentiment, a chocolate bar w/sentiment, or the like.

So there you have it...if I can make this you all can too. All you need for the card itself is an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of designer cardstock, a cutter, and adhesive. If you decide to make one please link to it in the comments section so I can see too!

Today at 5:00 p.m. I will be drawing a name for the winner of the May 3 Little DReaMs kit. Which, by the way, is now sold out so this drawing is truly the last chance to get the fun summery feeling of Beachabella! If you haven't...go sign up!

Yay! It is Friday! I hope you take today and turn it into whatever your heart desires! Heart 2

The cherries are perfect! They are like an unexpected surprise on the card. Does that even make sense? Anyway, it looks great!
