Seasons Spring Seed Packet Holder

     Here is the perfect spring card. It has a pocket up front that is the size of a seed packet. Anyone would be happy for receive a packet of flower seeds at this time of year. 

     The sentiment is a sticker matted on brown eyes paper - "Life Began in a Garden". The sentiment is flanked by copper mini brads.
     Decorating the pocket are three stamps on stakes which are embossed with a wood grain folder. The stamps looks very much like seed packets themselves - the kind used to mark seed rows in the garden.

     Here you can see that the pocket is only 1/4 inch deep. Actually there is plenty of room to for two packets of seeds.

     The card is complete with a piece of ephemera or journaling card. This is a great place to add a handwritten sentiment and sign the card. Inspired by: Gloria Stengel.

Inside of Card
This pocket fits nicely on an A2 card.
I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SPRING cards can be made using:
  • one sheet of each of the spring patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of green stripe and green floral from Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
Stay tuned for more cards this year.

  7. I totally love this Sharon! So much pretty detail and such a clever way to gift a packet or two or seeds. You really captured a garden there as well!

    I removed your first link up which you'd obviously done in error. Mr Linky usually throws a hissy fit if you try to link a second time - even with a different URL, he must like you :) Mind you, I love those two cards as well!
