Magnolia Pocket Thank You Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I am really enjoying creating cards with the Magnolia release.  I have a front pocket card using the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers dies decorated with the Magnolia Blossom Trio. You can add a greeting to a square piece of paper or put in a gift card.  They are simple to make and add to any card front or inside.



Die cut the Magnolia Blossom Trio from heavy weight white card stock.  I found that using a stencil sticky mate and putting the paper and die cuts on it makes for easy blending.  I use sticky notes to cover areas I don't want the ink on.  It makes it easy and quick to ink blend. I used 2 different shads of inks for the flowers, Clair Charming Pink and Purple Delight to get a lighter color for these magnolias.  
For the leaves I used ClairGreen Oasis and Shady Lane.  I did some light bending of the petals using my fingers or a pencil.  I also used foam dots to pop up some of the petals.  I glued the pieces together referencing the front of the envelope.  It is also easier with the sticky stencil mat to keep all the pieces together. 



Die cut the 3rd largest die from the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers set twice from a light purple paper from the Magnolia Plaid paper pad.  Take 1 of the die cuts and use the 3rd from smallest die from the Circle Basic set and die cut from the center of the curved cap to create a notch.  This creates a spot to pull the item out of the pocket.  Add 1/8" double sided tape around the 3 straight sides of the dark side of the paper.  Do NOT add tape to the curved top. Add the the die cut with the notch on top, making sure the lighter paper is on the outside you can see the dark paper from the notch.



3D emboss A2 side white card base using the Magnolia Blooms folder. Lightly rub some Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar and Mill Lavender on just the tops of the flowers and leaves.



 Adhere the background to a white A2 sized card.  Adhere the pocket to the center, tilting it slightly.  Adhere the flowers and leaves to the front of the pocket.  Die cut The tilted Thanks from the mirror gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  adhere over the flowers.  Splatter with some gold metal watercolor paint and add some Clear Fairy Drops randomly on the flower petals and leaves.
