created by courtney challenge #10

Yay! It is another challenge day today! I don't think I've ever told you guys how much I love my challenges. They are really a lot of fun and best of all they keep me stamping which is the best thing of all! Anyway, onto today's challenge...

This weeks Created by Courtney challenge is all about pocket cards. As with most things crafting there is more than one way to make a pocket card. The directions for the card I made are HERE. It is called a crisscross card. The other type of pocket card is HERE.

I chose the crisscross card because I love that you have more room for stamping or a written sentiment inside than the other type but that is just what I personally like. This card is made with Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango, and PTI White card stock. The patterned paper is from SU! in the Holiday mini and is called Frosty Days. It is such CaUTE paper! The large snowflake is also from the Holiday mini and comes in a package of 69 pieces and is appropriately called Little Felt Flurries. The stamp set is also from the Holiday Mini and Mr Twigster has previously been seen on my blog. What a cute snowman, huh? The Christmas lights are part of the Mr. Twigster set. I just colored them in with matching markers and then added some sparkle to them. A clip and some ribbon on the top completes the combo. Now...you couldn't mail this card as is because of the clip but you could take it off for mailing or give the card on the outside of your gift.

So...has my pocket card inspired you? Go...hurry...make one yourself! When you do make sure that you upload it to SCS with the keyword CBCC10 and then place that link on Courtney's blog for a chance to win a little goodie! I know you want to see what the rest of the girls do so go and check them out below...
