June 11, 2012 Look Who's Turning 4 pull-0ut card...

Good afternoon everyone.
I downloaded the new blogger and NOW I can download my pictures. whew! I am ONE happy camper.:0)

The project below is something I try and do every year for my kids. I like making "announcement cards" along with pictures when it is the kids birthdays so the relatives can see how different they look in each picture each year.
This is a little pocket card I made using mostly Recollections paper (Michaels'). 
Here are the instructions:

Outside of card:
Kraft paper (Hobby Lobby) 4 1/4 x 11
score kraft paper at 5 1/2
cut (only) front flap at 4 inches to make the front pocket

Front of card:
Yellow (recollections) 4 x 3 3/4
Green (Recollections) 1 x 4
cut green cardstock with Fiskars grass border punch

I purchased IMA Butterfly (stamp name)
by C.C. Designs at All that Scraps
I used Copic markers and some stickles 

Butterfly punch:
EK Success punch
assortment from Simply Autumn (Recollections) 

If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a message.
Thank you all for the sweet comments you leave;  you really make my day!:0)
