Pocket Notes

Ever heard the expression "Levi butts drive me nuts"? Well my card to share with you today reminded me of that saying! LOL! Maybe I just "dated" myself there but, that's okay - it's true! LOL! My friend Lindsay of "Lindsay's Stamp Stuff" has some new digital designs for you to check out! One in particular I knew I wanted to work with this week the minute I saw it...a pocket! I also have a little surprise to share with you all this week was well! Lindsay gave me a great design for you to download and try digital designs for yourself! Take a look at my creation and read on for more "deets"

Just pull that ribbon....


Voila - there's your words! Now you can write on the inside!


So, what's the freebie?! The patriotic heart! I also wanted to show you that the digital designs don't have to be used with plain paper only! I used some designer paper that looked like denim, a scrap actually. I simply taped it to my paper and ran it through the printer! Voila! Denim pocket! I cut it out, adhered it to the front, leaving the top open so I could make an insert to pull out! It's still a regular card but I thought this was a little different twist on a card from my regular ones! I'm pleased with how this one turned out!
I hope you try this free digital design for yourself but I want to also encourage you to do something else! I have a second reason for choosing this "patriotic heart" design as my freebie! A friend of mine, from work, was deployed recently and I am sending him this card in a box of cards to hand out to his troops. I'd like to challenge you to use this design to make some cards to send over to the troops as well! After hearing from my brother, when he was over there how much they all liked the cards because they were different from the standard ones available in the exchange, I knew I'd have to sweet talk this guy into letting me send him some too! He caved under pressure! LOL!

So, take a minute and check out Lindsay's designs, you'll find a ton of $1 designs there and her special right now too! So....hurry over!

Enjoy

Until next time....

Very Clever! Love that you used the denim paper for the pocket so cool. The tag in the pocket is just too adorable.

Love the frugal idea of taping the paper scrap to the copy paper and printing, did you print it on the computer paper first to get the placement right? The card is great and wonderful idea for out troops!

Haha! We must have been on the same wavelength this week. My card is a lot like yours. I used the pocket and heart as well! Great job! I love the pop up note!
