Perty Pocket and Die Cut Mat

I tried something new today...constructing a pocket on my card!

"Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge.  Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and make a pocket of any type on the front of your card."

Now, I don't own edger dies....yet!  But I do have other dies. 

Here is my project:


Here is the info for constructing the pocket:

Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 3 sandwiched between die cuts of Spellbinders Label Four (the smaller one was cut one end at a time, using a smaller set of cutting pads from my Tag-A-Long).

I added small flourishes at the tops from Papertrey's All Booked Up (Look at the sentiment "This is Where I Fall Asleep").  I also used Papertrey's Grunge Me for its flourish on the bottom.  The MIM video inspired me to add those little details.  They DO add pizazz.  

Speaking of pizazz...

Talk about inspiration!  It gave me the stylish theme and yellow/black combo.

Mark's Finest Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 63 inspired me to use a die cut as a mat/background.  I used half of my Sizzix/SU Lattice die as a backdrop.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in. ;)


Stamps: Papertrey All Booked Up flourish, Papertrey Grunge Me flourish, My Favorite Things Let's Go for a Walk sentiment
Other: Papertrey Mat Stack 3, Spellbinders Label Four for envelope, Spellbinders Label eleven for insert sentiment, Sizzix/Stampin Up Lattice Die, Staz On black ink, Sizzix Texture plate, Want2Scrap bling colored with black Sharpie
