Friendship Tag Pocket

I am having fun with new stamps and wanted to share another card with you today. The stamps are all available from Innovative Stamp Creations, Inc. Friendship set of 10. I used 7 stamps from the set. The vellum tag pocket was created with a piece of 5" square vellum. I folded it in 1/2 and then cut the front on a diagonal. Three edges were trimmed using metal tape for jewelry and paper crafts. The tag was stamped in black and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress inks. Colors used include: Black Soot, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahagony, Spiced Marmalade. The card base does not open and glossy is layered on burgandy and guava cardstock. I used Adirondack alcohol inks for the polished stone/red pepper, terra cotta & gold mixative. I stamped the detail flowers in black and then used a sponge dauber with Aged Mahagony for the centers. The vellum pocket is attached to the card using small glue dots under the prima's and foil tape.
