City Sidewalks Pocket Cards

I love to use some of the cut-apart cards that come with CTMH paper packs for pocket scrapbooking. Here is a card made with one of the 6" x 4" cards that comes with the City Sidewalks paper pack.


The pocket card has a white space in the center -  perfect for sentiments or embellishments. I cut a fishtail banners from a smaller red striped pocket card and Willow green cardstock.  The black sentiment panel was white embossed using the bold sentiment from the Happy Holidays Cardmaking Kit. The right side was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and a small strip of Willow patterned paper from the City Sidewalks paper peaks out. My favorite part is the black button with glittered edges, threaded with silver twine holding the red ribbon bow.

I hope this gives someone new ideas for using the leftover pocket card pieces from each paper pack. I thought it was a great way to make a few cards faster. I'll have another one tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting. May God bless your cardmaking and the recipients of your creations!

Love all the layers and that paper is perfect for that! :) Vickie, I'm sorry now that my challenge name is almost exactly like your blog title - I thought I had done a better search to make sure there was no overlap of names...sigh. I hope you aren't upset with me! Thanks for joining my Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge in Dec - I am now just getting a chance now to stop by and visit!
