I was cruising around on Pinterest and found this beautiful card. I found the card on Patti Lee's site...
Great Job Patti!!

I copied the post right from Patti's site:

This pocket card is a past favorite card style - bring it back!!!! NOW fill it with flowers. I love how this turned out. Simple layering of the flower shapes makes this easy to make. Leave the flowers flat or they can be shaped with a bone folder. Flip up the pocket for an additional area to leave a message. Card size is 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".

With note card removed: message to be stamped later. 

Card front template:

Note Card measurements: 

Cut pieces: 

(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" Rose Red CS, score as shown in above template
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Rose Red DSP
(3) sets of flowers in Whisper White CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" note card in Whisper White CS (not shown in photo)
(5) leaves in a mixture of sizes for variety (not shown in photo)
(3) 3/3" Punched circles in Rose Red CS for flower centers. (not shown in photo)
Using a sponge dauber and Rose Red ink, ink the centers of each flower. 

Assembly: follow the green arrows

Use the wide oval punch as well as the large oval punch for punch out the leaves. Fold them in half, then put them through the crimper.

Here are the finished flowers and leaves:

Using the Big Shot, position the 4-1/2" x 5-1/4" paper into the Vintage Wallpaper in the folder for this great impression

Attach the Rose Red DSP 1/8" away from the edge, then fold the Rose Red DSP back (underneath). You may not wish to attach the DSP while the paper is flat. The fold lines will cause the paper to "buckle". Insert the white note card. Using the back of the card, cut off the excess. Your card should now look like this: 

Stamps: none 
CS: Rose Red, Whisper White, Old Olive, Rose Red DSP (retired) 
Ink: Rose Red 
Accys: SU Exclusive Vintage Wallpaper Impression Folder, SU Exclusive Big Shot Blossom Party Die, Large Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Sponging Daubers, Dimensionals, Crimper.

Relay for Life

Hello Everyone!

I have been inspired by my neice who has participated in fundraising for Relay for Life for the last 4 years.  Each year she walks in memory of my mother who passed away at age 45 of colon cancer.  My mother-in-law and neice are also both cancer survivors.  Even after three family members have been touched by the disease we feel greatful and blessed that we are healthy and happy family.

In the spirit of giving and in supporting such a great cause I will be selling greeting cards for $3 each and donating $1 each to Relay for Life.  I am making this a virtual fundraising event in the hope that I will reach more people.  The following six cards have been tagged with an identifying numbers and are the cards I will be making and selling.  

So friends near and far please contact me by either sending me a message on Facebook at Creative Cards by Pat or email me at if interested in the cards and in donating to worthy cause.  

Every order counts toward finding the a cure for cancer.  I appreciate your support.

                                    #1                                                     #2

Summer Silhoutte

I wasn't kidding when I said I stamped all day on Saturday:)  Here is another of the cards I created!

I'm a fool for Stampin' Up!'s Regal Color Collection.

Here I used Always Artichoke Cardstock #105119 cut 5.5 x 8.50 folded in half to form the card base. 

 Next I took Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650 cut 5.25 x 4.  After cutting I ran the Very Vanilla cut stock through my Big Shot #113439 using my Adorning Accents Edgelit #125595 and then again with my Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder #129984. 

Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685 3/4 x 5.25.  Place a line of adhesive under the scalloped edge and adhere to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock you just cut.

Next I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler stock 5 x 2 and a piece of Very Vanilla stock 4 3/4 x 1 3/4.
Using the leafy vine from the Summer Silhoutte stamp set #132082 randomly stamp the Very Vanilla stock in Always Artichoke ink # 126972.  Next using the polka dot stamp from the Petite Petals stamp set # 133152 randomly stamp the Very Vanilla stock with Cherry Cobbler ink #126966.  Adhere the Very Vanilla stock to the Cherry Cobbler stock then adhere this assembled piece to the 5.25 x 4 piece of Very Vanilla that you assembled earlier.  Adhere the whole thing to the face of the card base.

Using one of the Petite Petals stamps, stamp 3 images onto a scrap of Cherry Cobbler stock and then punch these images out with the Petite Petals Punch #133322.  Using Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 adhere the three punched Petite Petals to the front of the card.

Lastly I stamped an image from the Four Frames stamp set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla stock and punched it out using the Decorative Label punch #120907.  From a scrap of the Cherry Cobbler stock punch another of piece using the same Decorative Label punch.  Then I cut the Cherry Cobbler label diagonally from end to end.  Place and  adhere each piece of the cut label behind the Very Vanilla stamped and punched image leaving the edges showing on opposite corners.  Adhere this label to the card using a Stampin' Dimensional on the right side and just adhesive on the left.

Add a little bling with embellishments you have on hand!
