These three pocket cards feature the Forever Lovely stamp set and the coordinating Lovely Flower Edgelits dies from Stampin' Up!

Link to My Stampin' Up! Store

I began by stamping the insert for the cards.  This first one was stamped in Crushed Curry and Old Olive inks onto a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" and mounted onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS 4-3/4' x 3-1/2".

The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and was stamped with Crushed Curry ink.

Then I created the pocket for the insert by die cutting a piece of Whisper White CS with the Edgelit die from the coordinating Lovely Flower dies.  I trimmed the piece of WW CS to 4" wide  x 4-1/4" tall (to the top of the die cut).

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Old Olive ink.  The stamped the 2 flowers from Forever Lovely in Crushed Curry ink (2nd generation stamping) across the sentiment as shown.  Then added the leaf sprigs and hearts in the same colors as shown using other dies from the set.

Lastly glued the card front onto a  5-1/4" x 4" Whisper White CS mat to form the pocket, mounted  it onto a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" base using a thin line of Tombow glue on the sides and bottom edges .  Let it dry completely before inserting the other inside mat to complete the pocket card.

This version of the card was stamped using Highland Heather and Old Olive inks and Highland Heather CS.

And this version of the card was stamped using Peekaboo Peach and Mossy Meadow inks and Peekaboo Peach CS.
