Pocket Full of Birthday Wishes

I'm still having fun with My Creative Time's Fun Pockets!!!  For today's card, I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock, scored at 5 1/4".  I then used my Cricut Imagine and the Vintage Papers cartridge to print my 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" blue patterned paper and my 4 1/4" x 5" ledger paper.  I actually printed the ledger paper on kraft cardstock, which gave it a much warmer look.

The sentiments on Fun Pockets are so fun!  I used a black gel pen to add the "..." after "Sending you a pocket full of."

My flowers are from another My Creative Time stamp set, Bloom Where You are Planted, and I colored them with Copics before cutting them out.

The sweet stitched pocket was cut with one of the two pocket dies that comes with Fun Pocket.  My favorite part is the little tag I made on the side of the pocket.  Did you know that you can stamp on the seam binding ribbon from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique?  I stamped the "XOXO" from Papertrey Ink's Tiny Tags set with StazOn ink, made a little loop and used scotch tape to stick it to the back of the pocket before adhering the pocket to the card.
