Hidden Pocket Card

Hello Everyone!  Sorry for the late post.  I am so used to posting on the dates ending in 7 that I forgot that it was changed this month because of it being such a short month.  I have a hidden pocket card to share with you today.  It was so much fun to make and I have to say I am pretty happy with the results.  I used the CottageCutz Vintage Vanity and Stool die.
The pocket is behind the image.

I made the bedroom scene and traced and cut the oval out for the mirror with my detail scissors.  I cut the vanity mirror frame 3 times and layered them on top of each other.  I did this so the table of the vanity would lay smoother over the "woodwork" and not have a bump.
 This is the back of the pocket before adhering to the card base.

This is the card front with tag in pocket and below is a picture of the sentiment I stamped in the mirror window when the tag is removed.
And here is the final card.  I ended up cutting it down to fit a standard card base of 4 and 1/4 X 5 and 1/2.
If you have any questions please ask.  I love to help if I can.  Have a great day!

Hugs and smiles,

  2. Janice this is brilliant! How beautiful...love that hidden tag!.
    Can you give me the information on how you created it? Did you just make a pocket on the inside and tuck that tag in there so it can be seen? I looked back at your pics...but my eyes are kinda going hay wire today!

  3. I love the idea of the hidden pocket! You are SO creative, Janice! Beautiful card! Hugs, Simona
