Wedding Anniversary Pocket card

Well we are half way through January and of course we now start to think of those special cards we would like to make, before we know it Valentines day will be here.

Although this is an anniversary card I think it would easily make a Valentines card too

The size of this card is 8" x 8" 
I matted red spotty paper onto craft card
I then used a Spellbinders die to make the edge for my pocket which is stuck down on 3 sides with red liner tape leaving the opening at the top for the tags to slot into 
My flowers are made by rolling up lace ribbon, which is something I learned from Sue Wilson's blog
My images are Lili of the Vally, which I coloured with Copic Alcohol Markers which are matted onto patterned paper and then onto craft card which is cut into the tag shape.

I hope you like my card and thank you for taking the time to read my blog 

Best wishes 
Vanessa xx
