Saturday morning Pocket cards

Good Morning crafters!!!  I hope you are all doing fine on this Father's Day weekend.  I Have been busy putting together a couple of quick cards, called Pocket Cards

Above is a photo showing why they are called pocket cards...there is  a pocket in the design to hold a mat for stamping as well as writing your personal note. 
To create your own, you will need a piece of Designer series paper, I used a piece from the Garden Lane DSP collection # 149488 and cut it at 4 by 10 and 1/2, then scored it at 5 and 1/4 and 9 and 1/4.

You will then need a mat at 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 for your base... and then another colored card stock mat at 3 and 3/4 by 5 and a whisper white mat cut at 3 and 1/2 by 4 and 3/4.

Take your DSP and fold on score lines....
 I then used a 6 inch piece of the NEW Scalloped ribbon in the Pretty Peacock #149751
 Taped the end to the back of the pattern paper to hold in place, and then I added tear and tape #138995
Peel of the tear and tape backing and place the DSP onto the 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 inch mat..

then I used the Story label #150076 and some dimensionals to place on card and stamped an oval punched (SU retired punch)piece of whisper white cs and stamped " thinking of you" sentiment from the Retired By the Bay stamp set.

I used the NEW color ink pad... Pretty Peacock # 150083

Below it the punch used..retired...
And Voila!!! finished card.
