shabby pocket fold

Fold down a corner and tie your card shut with a strip of Stampin Up's new fabric, add a big button and a glimmer brad with the snowflake punch to embellish this fun card. The second picture shows the card you can pull out to write your note on or maybe add a recipe. This shabby look comes from the shading and torn edges.

Happy stamping!
