Harvest of Gratitude Pocket Card

The sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary has a twist:  CCMC 267 is a sketch AND pocket card!  How fun!  I've been using this new Harvest of Gratitude set and saw it would fit this sketch and pocket card challenge quite nicely!

The colors are from this plaid sheet of Designer Series Paper from the Sweater Weather collection:  Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and Crushed Curry.  I love blues and browns together and the curry gives it an extra pop.   The banner on the left is the new Burlap Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog; really nice!

The pocket itself is a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock cut 4-1/4" x 9-1/2", scored and folded at 4-1/4".  I used Mono Multi Liquid Glue in a very thin line on both sides to secure the pocket closed; once it's dry I've never had that stuff turn loose!  The card inside is Soft Sky cardstock die cut with the Big Shot and the Oval Accent Die; the opening for ribbon in the top was cut with a little framelit from the Chalk Talk Framelits set.  Love how it makes such a nice finished opening for the ribbon!

Speaking of ribbon, I used Soft Sky Seam Binding and tied it with a bow of Linen Thread.  I used the lines stamp ("skid marks") stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set stamped lightly in Crumb Cake at both the top and bottom of the tag for interest and definition.  Lastly the "Gratitude" was cut with a matching framelit from Itty Bitty Banners Framelits and added to the top of the tag.

The turkey deco label stamp was stamped in Chocolate Chip onto Soft Sky with Crumb Cake ink, then stamped again with Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla .  The Soft Sky was die cut with the smallest of the Deco Label Framelits.  The vanilla cardstock turkey was punched out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch then layered over a Crushed Curry circle cut out with the 1-1/2" Circle Framelit.

Here is the pocket card sketch for Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge CWCM267:

Gorgeous card! I just love the color combo of Soft Sky and Chocolate chip for Thanksgiving. It was so clever of you to use the small die from the Chalk Talk dies to make a hole for the ribbon!
