Envelope-Style Pocket card
I love making pocket cards..or a card that's not a traditional fold.
This card was yesterday's "Cards Only Workshop' card...and was a big hit with the ladies who attended.
It was exiting for me to see the ladies (all of whom are fairly new to card making) enjoy creating a card that ventured away from a traditional A2 card..and that kind of "kicked it up a notch" for them..and added a new style card to their repertoire.
This was a Razzleberry workshop....(at each workshop everyone receives a different color full sized ink pad (of their own...to keep)...and we work with the coordinates ( prints, card stock etc). At this workshop we used Rich Razzleberry as our primary color and added Crushed Curry for a little bit of zing and contrast!
I was a little worried that the ladies wouldn't like the color combo...but it was a big hit (whew!)..as was the DSP/print paper.
This was our first "Weekday" workshop..(we usually meet on Saturdays...)..and although we were a small group..it was a terrific time with these awesome ladies....and this fun card project.....and now... we hope to make a weekday get together a regular part of our monthly workshop calendar.
