Double-pocket Birthday card




Following the tutorial from Beate (http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/) I made a double pocket card for a friend's birthday.
I like how my little scallop circle is part of the design but also removable, and I really like the colors of this paper (it's a double sided paper and I didn't have to add anything on it which was cool!!).

After trying stamping my image in black and coloring it i didn't like the result, and the stickles made the ink run a little which was really ugly (for example the candle's flame). That's when I got the idea of stamping in colors instead and I really like it. I think the result is softer but also more crisp, more "fresh" in my opinion. I don't know if that makes any sense for anybody else! LOL!
So there you have it, my 1st double-pocket card, and much likely not the last one, since this was fun and I love tucking whatever in the little pockets!... :-)
