Pocket full of Holiday Wishes

There was such great turnout last week on Simple Salutations on Speedy TV for the Anything Goes.  That was awesome.  This week we are adding an embellishment.  You can pick any embellishment you wish,  So I really do hope that you will join us.

I had fun this week making a 4.25 x 4.25 inch pocket card.  The inside card is then 4 x 4.  If you would like to try one, the tutorial can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.   I love these for Christmas because I can easily tuck a little gift card behind the tag and have a beautifully wrapped gift.  I then added patterned paper and mounted my Christmas Cardinal from Mark's Finest Paper on some scrap foam from when I unmounted all my rubber stamps.  It just gives some nice dimension.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  My embellishment is the brad I used to attach the tab for the card.  The tab was made by folding one of my Nesties in half and then attaching with a brad I rescued when the school was throwing about a dozen boxes of them out.  They were so old, no one knew what they were or how to use them.
