Creation Station - Bloomin' Love!


Thanks for stopping by on the Creation Station's Blog Hop! If you're just starting the hop, Welcome! Our Blog Hop is focused on Valentines! And you'll be seeing a lot of the Bloomin' Love stamp set and the coordinating Bloomin' Heart Thinlits, as well as a lot of Glimmer!! 


I used Kraft Cardstock to make this fun pocket card! I added a subtle (Kraft/Crumb Cake colored) patterned piece of designer paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack, along with the fabulous Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, for the background.

The beautiful Bloomin' Heart from the Thinlits can definitely stand alone... But I decided to add some Blushing Bride Glimmer flowers (from the Thinlits set) to add a little pop! And the Candy Dots made a sweet and simple flower center.
  
 

I tied Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon around the card to keep it closed!

To make the card into a Pocket Card I started with a 5-1/2" x 12" Kraft Cardstock piece, and scored at 4" and 8". I made an angled cut on the third section to create the inside pocket. Then I added a 'slice' of Blushing Bride Glimmer to coordinate and the sweet "My Valentine" greeting!


The pocket is a nice size for a gift card, but big enough for a little treat too!


I hope you liked my Pocket Card!
