Penny Black - Floral Pocket Card

Hello friends - thanks for stopping by.  It is Sunday here in the Southern Hemisphere - but definitely feels like Friday - funny how days can have a 'feel to them' - or is it just me who thinks that way?!  Before I lead you astray or totally confuse you - on with today's card....

I am sharing a pocket card created using a gorgeous blooming tags stamp set by Penny Black Inc.  The images have been coloured using Chameleon Pens.

Extra details have been added using a White Paint Pen.  The double pockets have been made by adhering angled card stock across a Die cut card base, using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies; at two different heights.  I have used patterned paper from my stash, along with lace from my stash to decorate each pocket.  The Platinum Die Cutting Machine  has been used .It is a very easy card to create and can be made to any size, which is convenient if you are wanting to add gift voucher is something similar.

Ribbon has been added around the card front and a double bow has been adhered to the centre, along with a Mulberry Paper Rose to the know of the bow.  Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse has been trimmed and added from the paper rose.  Two large White Pearls have been adhered to the top of the tags to finish.
