Pocket Swap!


It's long over due but this little card is finally going to be sent on its way!!! I signed up for a swap way back, kept having computer glitches and couldn't get the recipients addresses UNTIL TODAY!!!
---
I know that sounds funny but I received my cards a few weeks ago and I feel really bad I couldn't send mine out. Oh well, the joys of the computer age!
---
Anyway, this pocket is just simply made by sewing up the sides. I folded down the top to give it some detail, punched the edge and used a brad to hold it down.
---
The image, Thomas Kinkade Christmas Village, is stamped with SU! Classic ink on their glitter paper. I roughed up the edges using a scrapper kinda thingy, layered it on the black, tied some ribbon and voila!
---
The inside uses one of the TK sentiments, McGill tab punch and misc. snowflake stamp.
---
Totally out of my normal box, but it was fun to create!
---
Happy stamping!
Edited to add: Blogger is so crazy!! I have no control over how the layout it sometimes! Sorry it looks so weird!

I luvv your TK pocket card, WOW! I am wondering if you would be so kind as to post dimensions of base/pocket/insert/image etc.?? Instead of sewing could we use the slimmest red magic tape up the sides? I have got to get some of these stamps, as a kid I remember these were the typical classic xmas card. Thank you..tfs. :)
