  • Shaded Spruce CS: 11” x 4-1/4”, scored in half at 5-1/2” (2 pieces)
  • Basic White Thick CS: 5-1/4” x 3-3/4” plus scraps for die cutting
  • DSP: 5-1/4” x 4”, then cut in half diagonally


  1. Burnish the folds in the two Shaded Spruce CS bases.
  2. Lay the bases side by side, lying horizontally, so the folds are on the left and right.
  3. Cut the front of the left base diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.
  4. Cut the front of the right base diagonally from the bottom left to the top right.
  5. Glue the back of the bases together, so that the triangular fronts overlap in the front.
  6. Glue the DSP triangles onto the two card fronts.
  7. Using Tear & Tape, adhere the left front onto the inside, only along the very bottom edge.
  8. Using Tear & Tape along the bottom edge, and glue where the two fronts overlap, adhere the right front down. Now you have a pocket!
  9. Using the large ink splotch stamp and Pale Papaya ink, stamp along the top edge of the 5-1/4” x 3-3/4” Basic White Thick CS piece.
  10. Onto a scrap of Basic White Thick CS, stamp the larger flower and the tiny flowers in Magenta Madness ink., and 2 leaves and the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink.
  11. Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
  12. Die cut the flowers and leaves using the Artistic Dies.
  13. Lay all the die cut pieces on the front of the pocket to arrange them, then glue all the pieces together in a cluster.
  14. Adhere the cluster onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals (I used the regular size and the mini.)
  15. Apply sequins onto the large flower and the larger two of the tiny flowers.
  16. Slide the Basic White Thick CS piece into the top of the pocket.
