Ooh La La! Yummy New Paper!

I am so in love with these new Petals & Paisleys Papers from the Spring Mini! Aren't they delicious! I made this Pocket Card with the also new and in the Spring Mini, Long Notes cards and envelopes. The Long Notes are cool because the open from top to bottom; meaning when open they are almost 14" wide. Closed they measure 6 5/8" X 3 1/4", with a matching Vanilla envelope... so hip! I sealed the sides of this Long Note with Sticky Strip; turning it into a pocket!

Prior to gluing it shut; I used my 1 1/4" square punch to punch the rectangle out from the base of the pocket. I cut the Petals & Paisleys paper in random strips for the top, and lined the envelope with the matching paper. As I already stated; the envelopes that come with these Notes are Vanilla toned; so matching them with the white in these papers was tricky. I used Twill tape to tie in the Vanilla, and then lined the envelope in a pattern that has some white stripes... it seemed to work!

The inner tag was created with the Tag corner punch, and stamped with Old Olive and Cool Caribbean Ink. I used the great set that ALL us demos got for FREE this Holiday season; "Polka Dots and Paisley". I finished the tag with a Large Oval Punch folded over the top and affixed with a Hodgepodge Hardware Hanger strung with Twill Tape. Viola!
