This is a pocket card with a pull out book mark. The card base is Neenah Solar Crest White 140lb stock. On that I layered a piece of design paper from the ODBD Chalkboard Paper Collection. Then I cut a curvy edge with the Leafy Edged Borders dies and cut my diagonal pocket to fit. I then embossed that panel and adhered it with tacky tape on the bottom and left side. I cut my removable book mark/tag with the ODBD Vintage Label dies, and Vintage Flourish Pattern die set. I stamped the sentiment from the new Beauty stamp set on a scrap of design paper in my stash. I decorated the tag with one size of the new Pretty Posies die set, a Fancy Flourish die cut, and I stamped and die cut the little butterflies with the Butterfly and Bugs stamp set and matching Butterfly and Bugs die set. I added a corner die cut from the Ornate Borders and Flowers die set to the top and punched a hole, passing thin satin ribbon through that.
The pocket itself was decorated by cutting 2 of each of the 3 sizes in the Pretty Posies set from white card stock and sponging with distress ink. I then used my embossing tools to shape each layer and glued them together. I cut three of the largest leaves in that set and stenciled while still in the die, then shaped them the same way. Some Stickles in the center, a little gauze, ribbon and a few more butterflies finished it off.
For the card above, I used the Home Sweet Home set for my sentiment. I used the ODBD Custom Window Dies, Shutter and Awning Dies, and Flower Box Fillers. I also used Antique Labels and Border Die set to cut the sentiment with, and Fancy Foliage. I used the Butterfly and Bugs stamp to stamp and heat emboss the butterfly on vellum, and cut it with the ODBD Custom Butterfly Dies & Bugs Die. The design paper is the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection.
For this card, I used the wonderful Belles Vignes, Trois Jolis Papillons, and Psalm 23 for my stamps. I also used the matching dies, ODBD CustomTres Papillons, and another die, ODBD Custom Birds and Nest, along with the Fancy Foliage and Vintage Labels dies.
