MIM #91 Faux Pockets

Dawn McVey challenged us to use faux pockets on our cards.
There's a complete tutorial on Nichole Heady's blog at PapertreyInk.com.
My card features a few of the new stamp and die sets.
The 'pocket' is a mat stack 4 with the top chopped.
The Santa face from Santa Stationary is heat embossed in white on Pure Poppy cardstock.
When the tag is removed, theres a message from the same set, stamped in Scarlet Jewel and Spring Rain, separated by a heart jewel.
Details are die cuts from Peaceful Pinecones and Snowflake Medley.
Much too much fun, and, making headway with the Christmas Card!

  4. Lovely, as always! The mat stack 4 as a pocket is just perfect for the tag with santa. Love how he looks on red cardstock! Very pretty ´flower´ on his hat too!
