What's in Your Pocket? Card #3

Hello!  Sorry I am late posting today.  Today's card finishes the three part series on the pocket cards I did this week for The Crafty Scrapper's blog.  I was at the store teaching yesterday and I got great compliments about all the cards from my class takers, and also the store owner and manager.  Wow, that is pretty darn nice!  I will share the post as I wrote it below.  And add an extra photo at the bottom for you.  Enjoy!

Hello, it's Tina here to show you my third pocket card creation made using some wonderful products from The Crafty Scrapper.  

The card features a pocket horizontally across the width of the card, highlighted with a favorite border die from My Favorite things.  The sentiment is from an awesome set of stamps from Inky Antics.  The swirl is a chipboard from Maya Road that was inked with Distress pads and then embossed with an embossing folder.  This was a first for me, and I love the effect!  The flower looked like this before ...

And now, perfectly matches my card!  First, I changed the color by coloring it with my Copics.  Then I flattened it out and cut out the middle, so that it would be flat enough for me to add that big red rhinestone!  An altered flower ... wow! 

Stop in the Crafty Scrapper so you can see all three of my pocket cards in person and get a list of the supplies I used. 
  Happy Stamping!

Here is my extra photo of the tag pulled out of the pocket ...
And one more!  A good close-up of my "altered" flower!  
Happy Stamping!
