Jillibean pocket card...

Hello! Monika here today with a fun pocket card. Summer is just around the corner, so I decided to use some fun papers by Jillibean Soup, that reminded me of summer. Audrey had a sweet card couple of days ago using the same cheerful papers from the Coconut Lime Soup collection.

This pocket card was super easy to make. The base is just a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Kraft card stock that I decorated with designer paper pieces. I used various dies and punches to make my rosette and the flags... but if you don't have these 'fancy' tools, you can use your cutting board and a scoring blade.

This sweet pocket card can also be incorporated into your scrap booking project. It's a great way of adding journaling or some extra photos to your page.

I decorated my rosette with Pink Paislee buttons from the Indigo Bleu collection. I also used some Baker's Twine from my stash.

If you have some fun stamps and rhinestones, you can easily fancy up your project, just like I did.  Studio Calico and Hero Arts have some really fun sets that can be used on so many different projects.

The fun sketch for my card came from Got Sketches?, sketch #144.

Thanks for stopping by today!
