Pocket Goose - Stampin' Up! Silly Goose

   I have been stamping new projects the last few days but I can't show them yet due to birthdays and an upcoming mom holiday!  I don't want to spoil the surprise.  Luckily I have another project we made at my last class to share today. 

  We used the Silly Goose stamp to make this super easy pocket card.  The card base is just one layer with the little pocket and then the card is a small card that just slides into the pocket.  I told my stampers this is a fantastic design if you need to make a lot of cards!  Cute doesn't always mean complicated!  Using the Silly Goose set makes it even easier since it's so simple to color!  Just beak and feet!  The other 2 cards at that class were coloring heavy so I needed a design that didn't take forever to make!

  I used the Host DSP Dandy Designs from Sale-a-Bration since I didn't have enough of any current DSP to create 20 cards.  I love these pretty spring colors.  But you can use any DSPs you have on hand.

  The card base is Whisper White thick and is just a quarter sheet of regular card stock cut to 5.5" x 4.25" and topped with a slightly smaller piece of DSP.

  To make the pocket just cut 2 squares in half along the diagonal, one in Basic White and the other in a coordinating DSP.  The card stock square is 3.5" x 3.5" and the DSP is 3.25" x 3.25".  Adhere 2 of the triangles together then carefully put glue on the 2 sides leaving the long side open to create the pocket.  Make a second card in no time with the other pocket pieces.

  For the little card use an 8" x 3" piece of Basic White and fold it in half.  Stamp the goose, color it in then add the 2 DSP border pieces.  We used the Basic Borders dies for the detailed edge but any fun edge die would work.  The sentiment is stamped and popped up with dimensionals on the pocket.

   Finally a simple white bakers twine bow finishes off this sweet thank you card.

  You can find the Silly Goose set in the new Annual catalog as it carried over from the mini.  Check out page 51 for fun samples.  Supplies to make this card can be ordered on my website under SHOP NOW.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
