Prehistoric Pockets

Todays technique challenge was to create a double pocket card. I've made a couple of these before but its been awhile. I wanted to put something in the second pocket other than a tag, etc. I wanted to put something for the recipent to keep. I thought about doing a candy bar, tea bag, etc. I went to go through my stash to see what I had that would work with the pocket and found this bag of dinos. That was all it took!LOL! I just got this super cute dino set from Treehouse stamps.

I pulled out my SU east coast prep dp to make my pocket card. I love using this dp for boy cards. It has great colors! I colored the dinos using prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol. The pteradactyl (sp?) is cut out and popped up on the mustard layer with Prehistoric pals stamped in black. I also added double stitched wasabi ribbon under the image layer. I found 2 dinos in my pack that were green and a mustard color so I pulled them out and made a bag topper. I stamped the sentiment and used my SU turquiose marker to make a border. I left my insert with the mustard dino empty for now but I will put him a little note above the dino for him. I know he will love this! He is a big Land Before Time fan!LOL! I think this turned out pretty cute! Here is a pic of the just the pocket card w/out the inserts. Have a great day!
