Pocket Card Madness - Top Note Die Pocket Card

I am going a little pocket card crazy lately. I hope you don't mind!

I like to make my husband cards for no reason at all. When you're first married, your really good at all that lovey dovey stuff. Time goes by, kids come along . . . you know how it goes! I have good intentions, but it doesn't always work out. Masculine cards are always a challenge for me too. Here is a very simple one for you to try!

I used less than 1 sheet of To the Nines Specialty paper. This paper collection is perfect for masculine cards. It's double sided and thick, which is great for cards!

I die cut two Stampin' Up! Top Note's. I folded down one of the Top Note's about 1/3 of the way down. I stamped a sentiment and framed it with hardware to the card front (folded piece). I added glue around the very edge of the folded piece and adhered it to the other full Top Note die cut.

The little card that gets tucked inside this card is 2.5 x 4 inches. You can add your own little note on this or stamp a little saying like I did. To finish it off, I added a little round tab and one of SU! new Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons!

Have fun with this type of pocket card, and don't forget to share your love for stamping with the ones you love!

Thank you for visiting today! Have a good one!

Awesome! I've been kind-of hoarding this paper unsure how to best use it. I love your pocket card idea -- so perfect!

How do you like the To the Nines paper? It's been on and off my wish list a million times.

TIffany! That is so cute. I will definitely give this card a try. So many ways it could look with different card stock and designer papers.
