Stampin for the Weekend Challenge - Wallet or Pocket Card

This weeks Challenge is to create either a Wallet or Pocket Card, Ive created a Pocket card with a Wallet inside.

Ive used the papers from the new Crafters Companion Cd Popcorn the Bear, I have used a piece of A3 card, and folded it half, stuck one of the corners to help with holding it square, and put it through my printer and printed it on the two sides, then folded up the bottom by making the base card a 8"x 8" size. After this I printed two more papers of the same design, which I used on the inside. I then stuck up the folded part with some thin foam tape to create a pocket for the envelopes I printed and the notepaper.

I then stamped the Bear (which is one of the new sets of rubber stamps) image onto a piece of white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which I cut it out with my rotatrim, and mounted it on a piece of teal coloured pearlescent card. The greeting is one that I had in my stash, and I also stamped a duck image at the end of it, which was also coloured using the copic pens.

These were then stuck to the front of the card, and a piece of spotted ribbon around the middle which I stuck down on the inside of the pocket. To finish of I have made a bow with a bit of the ribbon I had left, and with a flower stuck to the centre a pearl gem in the middle, Ive stuck it to the ribbon.
