A Berry Folded Thank You!!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! It has been AGES since I have been able to participate in the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS, and I was SO excited to be able to play today and create one of these SUPER fun Tri-Fold Pocket Cards ala Lynn, TLC233!! I followed Lynn's SUPER easy directions here and was able to make this fairly quickly!

For my Tri-Fold Pocket Card, I used ALL Taylored Expressions products & supplies!!! ALL the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and those DARLING strawberry Braddies are from the Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients!! Once again, Taylor has created a DELISH Key Ingredients chock full of everything you need to create delightful cards & projects!! I'd like to think that this project came out quite delightful as well ;)

I started by stamping the circle from Berries & Cherries in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock (this cardstock is the neutral in the Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients!!), and I then stamped the strawberry, not inking up the full *chocolate drip*) in the center of the circle. I stamped the strawberry once more, colored it with Copic Markers (now available in the Taylored Expressions Store...WOOT!), cut it out and popped it up on Foam Tape!! I added Glossy Accents to the *chocolate* portion of the image to make it super shiny!! Underneath my strawberry I stamped the swirl from the Berries & Cherries set in Pretty In Pink so I didn't have TOO much white space (that's how I roll...LOL!)

I framed this circle image using Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities and had my focal image ready to go!! I stamped my sentiment, "thank you berry much" onto Choice Snow White Cardstock again, but this time I inked up the words with Copic Markers, huffed, stamped and then punched it out with my Word Window Punch!!

For the inside pockets, I left them plain Choice Snow White Cardstock, as I am not sure what I want to use this for yet, but wouldn't it be perfect to house gift cards? It seems the perfect size to me!! I did add "pull ribbons" to my tags using this delish ribbon from the Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients, and added a strawberry Braddie beneath each ribbon!! SO fun!!

My outside ribbon is adhered onto the top panel of my Tri-Fold Pocket Card, and then covered with my focal strawberry image. I popped up the entire circle focal image with Foam Tape, but it is only adhered to the top panel, that way, you can open the card!!!
