I love pocket cards and actually made this cute set of Valentine pocket cards either last year or the year before (can't remember)! I obviously never got around to posting them, so I thought I'd share them with you today!
Bright colors were combined to play off the patterned papers, providing lots of visual interest and contrast! If you're one of my regular readers, you know I love eye-catching and somewhat untraditional color combos (I love the orange, red, and pink combined with the green)! Embellishments were created using various circle and heart punches, then highlights were hand-drawn with a white gel pen to add finishing touches to each embellishment (click on each card for a close-up view)!
Pocket cards are fun because, in addition to your written message or added sentiment, you can tuck in extras, such as a gift card, money, or a pair of movie tickets! These will be going out in the mail to special friends and family members to brighten their Valentine's Day!
