Baby Zebra Pocket Card

It's time for the April card swap at Scrapp'n Savvy. The rules: Use the Vintage Lace collection from Bazzill Basics and incorporate one 1/2" x 4" piece of coordinating chip board.
Baby Zebra Pocket Card
 I started with a nested Artisan frame. I cut two large brown and one smaller polka dot - nested frame. I scored one of the brown frames at the narrowest width and folded it back. I cut the polka dot frame in half - 1/2 for the back of the pocket and 1/2 for the front. Score the front frame at the narrowest width. Attach polka dot frame halves to brown frames. Notice the brown paper has contrasting sides, which adds interest to the layout of the card.
Baby Zebra Insert Card
The base of the insert card is 2 1/2 x 4". The pattern paper is cut 2 1/4 x 3 3/4". Tab on the top is a partial punch using a 1 1/2" scalloped square punch for the pattern paper and 1 3/4" scalloped square punch for the brown. The cream paper is 2 x 2 1/4" and distressed.
The embellishment on the front of the pocket is made of two nested square scalloped punches.
