Pocket Silhouettes

Another card using the set Pocket Silhouettes, another card I case'd from Rachel. This easy and elegant card could be used for so many different occasions!

To make the card, I folded a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" sheet of Basic Gray cardstock in half. I folded one edge down approximately 1" and tore a narrow strip from the bottom. I taped the torn flap down and tied a piece of white taffeta ribbon around the card, making a pocket. I repeatedly stamped the flower image along the bottom, stamped the same image on a piece of Whisper White scrap paper and punched it with the 1 3/4" circle punch, making a tag. I punched a small hole at the top of the tag and threaded some fine crochet thread through the hole, tying it to my ribbon. For the card, I took a piece of Whisper White cs, rounded the corners and stamped the sentiment. So simple and so pretty!
