Make It Monday #68: Pocket Cards ~1

I thought with Fathers Day coming up a Fathers Day pocket would be useful. I LOVE Fine Linen card stock. It is a great neutral, good for a masculine card, however I would use this for anyone. This pocket is 5 1/2x8 1/2 folded in half. I cut 1 1/2" off the front flap and Zigzagged the edges. I took the Chevron dies and white card stock. I found an interesting little trick. I had butted the 2 dies next to each other to save paper. By doing that, it cut a very skinny little border! WooHoo! A freebie! I love the extra texture by having a 3rd size. I layered those cuts on the front of the pocket and for the bottom of the card I did the same with Fine Linen. I used Fillable Frames #1 die and white card stock stamped in Fine Linen. The pocket sentiment is from Fillable Frames #4 in Dark Chocolate ink. The sentiment on the top of the card is from Signature Series: Flower Mini Stamp Set in Dark Chocolate.
I will make more of this card. I REALLY like it!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
