Pocket Cards

I loved the Make-It-Monday video at Capture the Moment this week.  It is all about making pocket cards, which is something I've never done before.  I played around and made three different pocket cards a few days ago, but am just now getting to blogging them.  I think these would be fun for invitations or for giving gift cards.


It's interesting to me how the french blue ink took on more of an aqua color on the kraft cardstock.  On the white I had to switch to robin's egg blue to match.

Supplies:
Paper: PTI kraft, white
Stamps: PTI turning a new leaf, think big favorites, Fiskars floral flair
Ink: Colorbox frost white, , french blue, robins egg, Memento tuxedo black


Supplies:
Paper: PTI kraft, white

Stamps: wplus9 guiding light, PTI think big favorites
Ink: Colorbox frost white,Memento



For this card I added a plum color to go with the ColourQ challenge this week.  I didn't have a good button to match, so my button is a little more reddish, but I'm still pleased with it.

Supplies:
Paper: PTI kraft, white

Stamps: PTI turning a new leaf, think big favorites, Fiskars floral flair
Ink: Colorbox frost white, french blue robins egg, Memento ocean depth, Versamagic perfect plumeria
