A Pocket full of Christmas Wishes

Yesterday's challenge on "Splitcoast Stampers" (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/) was to make a horizontal pocket card. They are incredibly easy to make. You just fold a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock in half like you are making a regular card, then fold one "lip" down about 1 inch, or whatever you'd like, and decorate as desired. Then make a single layer card to go inside the pocket for your greeting or photo, etc. A fun way to use designer papers. Also a great way to enclose a gift card! This card uses two papers from "Paper Adventures" called "Enchanted Christmas Sweets" and "Enchanted Christmas Stripes." It has pretty sparkles all throughout it. The candy ribbon is from Michaels (a little bobbin spool) and I've had it for about 2 years waiting for the right time to use it. The tag on the front of the card is from StampinUp, Too Terrific Tags, and the Round circle at the top is from "Riveting." The sentiment on the inside of the card is from Stampendous and it's called "Wishes Come True." It's one of my favorite sentiments to use on the inside of my Christmas Cards. The cardstock used includes Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Yo Yo Yellow, all from StampinUp!
