Dad's pocket rose

Good afternoon all!  Still hot here... a good excuse to stay inside and play with my crafting goodies.  I made a card for Ellen Hutson's "pocket/pochette" challenge using these MemoryBox Brioche papers that I have had for a little while now.  There are some great patterns in this collection and I selected these 3 from the 6 X 6 pad that I think are masculine.  I started off by making the card front with some strips of the paper and then cut out a plaid piece with a Spellbinders label # Eighteen die.  I cut the top off and used the little strip as the fold-over on the front of pockets and went over the edges with a vermillion Copic marker, using the broad end tip.  I then ran some red stitches over it and was more convinced that it looked like a pocket :)  I wanted a little pop of colour and added the resin Prima flower, like a boutonniere, but from the pocket corner.  The sentiment is made with Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers, so, so easy!


  1. Oh this is lovelu ... love your choice of papers too and so unique ...
