Pocket Card

 
My first pocket card and what fun to make!  It was an optional swap the design team at House of Cards could participate in. You could choose a winter or holiday theme, mine is a bit of a mix and was sent all the way to Norway to Meredith (Ma).  As you can see below, the back of the pockets had little goodies in them to matched embellishment or theme of the front of that pocket, except the pocket with my letter.  Pintrest has examples of how to make a pocket card it you are interested or you can just wing it from my example.  Close-ups are below.

Hello, Donna - I LOVE your pocket letter! I have not made one of these yet but it's on my to-do list if I can ever muster up the courage to try it. These are so popular right now and I have been seeing them all over blogland! I love everything about this - you have a bunch of my favorite things here - critters, snowman, snowflakes, hot beverage, and pink! Congratulations on your first pocket letter! I'd say it's definitely a winner and the recipient will love it!
