There's a New Sheriff in Town!

Howdy!  I'm here today with a bit of inspiration for you using the new Deputy Christopher stamp from Inky Impressions.  He' s just a doll and makes me wish I still had one young enough to play dress-up!

 I created a pocket card for today using a regular 11 x 4.25" piece of kraft cardstock.  After it was folded in half, I scored it about 1.25" from the bottom edge to create a flap.  Then turn the card upside down for you base of the pocket.  After I layered some papers on the front and flap I sewed the edges with a zig zag stich and added a ribbon to hold the flap down.  Christopher has been stamped, colored with copics, then cut out and adhered to the outside, along with my sentiment.  Then I added a bandana inside the pocket.  Easy peasy!  (Cling Bandana Stamp is by Stampendous!)

Try creating one of your own pockets.  If you don't want to sew the edges, just add some adhesive down the edges of the inside to keep it shut!  Hope you have a great day :)
