What's going on in my creative space.....

Circle Pocket Card

We made this cute card today at our monthly hostess club meeting. 
I used the Sugar Rush paper pack .  Here are the instructions:
Cut a 7.5 inch circle from Daisy White cardstock.  Score at 1 3/4 and 5 7/8
Turn circle one quarter turn and score at 2 1/4
You will have 2 short score lines - cut in on these score lines
Add a thin line of liquid glass or glue at the bottom of the 2 long side flaps - sealing the bottom for your first pocket.
Add a thin line of liquid glass or glue along the inside of the fold lines on the bottom flap and fold to form 2nd pocket.  Add a thin line of liquid glass or glue to the bottom of both of the little flap and fold forward to create the 3rd pocket. 
Inserts for each pocket:
I used Background and texture paper for the base and then white cardstock for the top layer of each insert.
Largest base:  4 1/2 x 3 1/2  top layer 4 1/4 x 3 1/4
Middle base:  4 x 3 1/4 top layer 3 3/4 x 3
Smallest base:  3 1/2 x 3 top layer 3 1/4 x 2 3/4
Embellish as desired

Here are a few other circle pocket cards made today:

Hope you will give this a try and share what you created.  Happy Sunday.  Nan
