Another one for my card-loving, card-making friends

I made this yesterday before work for a swap with my girlies. Actually, I made 8 of them.

I really liked the little vellum pocket thing on the ones I made for the online swap, so I basically cheated off myself here.

The pocket is a little vellum envelope. I cut off the flap and made it into the pocket.

The only thing I am not totally happy with are the colors. I thought they would look better when I cut them all out. But after I made the first one, I was thinking "Eh."

But I already had it all cut out. That'll learn me for next time.

I like the second one best. No words on the card?

I always liked to emboss. There was just something about watching the pattern pop as the powder melted.

It's actually two pictures of the same card. One just shows the tag outside the pocket.

I love to emboss. I have so many little things for stamping that I sometimes forget about stuff like embossing.

I was making these cards in a hurry, so I just repeated a basic design from another swap.

I have an Internet swap due at the end of September. Maybe I can work some embossing in on that one.
