I recently taught a class to a group of ladies who were looking for ideas and inspiration for different styles of wedding/shower invitations. This pocket card is one of the cards we created. The pocket style enables you to generate the information on a seperate piece and insert it into the pocket. Or, it could be used as a Thankyou card as shown here. Just stamp, write or computer-generate your sentiment or note on the insert piece. Two pocket bases can be created from one 12 inch piece of paper. The beautiful sentiment stamp is by the ever so talented Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design. She has many wonderful quotes and sayings completed beautifully with calligraphy as well as other images such as flourishes along with a variety of paper-crafting supplies. I encourage you to check out her web site. The roses were created using the spiral technique, you can find some step out photos in my CardMaker newsletter about creating flowers. The leaves were created using a Martha Stewart punch. As you can see this style of card is very versatile and would be perfect for thankyou notes, wedding invitations and save the dates, shower invites both wedding and baby, baby announcements, Sweet 16, and for almost any reason or season!
