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 SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  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!
