    I created another step by step card tutorial with this month's kit. I do have to apologize for the bad photo quality, cause I ran out of day light.
    Here's the card I made for today:


    And here's how it came together:

    For the base of the pocket I cut a piece of PP at 6 x 7 Fold it double lenght wise.

    I distressed and inked the edges and gave it a little spritz with home made GM.

    I cut another piece of PP at 4.3 x 5.2 Fold it lenght wise. This piece will close up the pocket.

    I flipped the pocket, and glued half of the closure piece to the inside, like in the picture. Slided it as much as I could to the right, distressed, edge.

    Added glue to the other half and a little line of glue at the bottom and folded the left side, to close the pocket.

    Like so!

    For the decoration of the pocket I cut a little piece of PP at 3.5 x 1.7 Distressed and inked the edges.

    I cut out this circle. Distressed and water colored the edges. (I used watered down Distress inks)

    I fussy cut this little bird and inked the edges.

    I took this little DA piece and dabbed some Texturez on it with my finger. After it dried, I added some Inka Gold, again using my finger. I placed everything on my pocket (NO GLUING YET) to see where to go next.

    For the insert I cut 2 pieces of PP (measurements are in the picture) distressed and inked the edges.

    I glued them together like this. I didn't glue the banner all the way down, cause I want to be able to tuck something undeeath.

    I pop-dotted the upper half of my circle and placed it somewhat in the middle of the pocket. I glued the little piece of PP ove the bottom half of the circle.

    I slided the insert back in and added a double bow which is topped of with a button. The crinkled ribbon is from a previous SD kit. I glued my DA piece in place as well as the bird.

    For my flower: I started out with this white flower and painted it with stormy skye distress ink. when it dried I gave it a spritz with GM in weathfield.

    For the centre I took 3 stamen's and a beadcap, which I folded open.

    Run the stamen through the beadcap then trough the flower and secured the stamen to the back of my flower with a drop of hot glue.

    Of course I need a leaf too, but couldn't fine 1 that fits in my stash, so I look for one outside. I covered it with Fast Finish Decoupage (by Beacon Adhesives) and let it dry. This gives the leaf a protecting coat and makes it a little sturdier. (sp)

    I glued them to the pocket like in the picture.

    For the finishing touch I added some bling strip, which came in the kit.

    And lastly I stamped my sentiment and called it done.
    I hope you like it.

            "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
