I love this. You did such a good job. I was wondering if you would be willing to send me the directions/dimentions etc for this card? My daughter is getting married next year and is wanting me to do her invites. I think this or a form of this would make a wonderful card. I would really appreciate it if you could. My email is email@example.com.
Thanks so much.

I used a 12X4 strip of textured chocolate chip, scored at 4 and 8. After you score, check the folds and make sure one side folds flat over the other before you proceed. This will be a problem later if it doesn't work at the beginning.
In the center inside panel, use a 3x3 square of soft sky, and adhere it in the very center. Use the photo corner punch with some Au chocolat Designer series paper, and adhere two corners onto the soft sky. Stamp the word "cherish in chocolate chip on the panel. (From Baroque Motifs)
For the right panel, adhere a 4X2 pocket of soft sky - I used sticky strip on three sides to make this pocket. Stamp the background from baroque motifs in soft sky, but stamp off once before stamping so it's very faint on the pocket before adhering. Cut a strip of chocolate chip 4 X 1/2". Punch two 1/4" holes in it as shown in my sample. Then on a scrap of soft sky, stamp the little flower from baroque motifs three times in chocolate chip, and punch out the center of the flowers with the 1/2" punch. Adhere these to the strip and then mount the strip on the pocket, about 1/8" down from the top.
For the left pocket, cut a 4x4 square of soft sky. Stamp off once, and then stamp the background from baroque motifs in soft sky on the reverse side. Fold the top right hand corner back and adhere. Mount the pocket on the left inside panel with 3 pieces of sticky strip.
Cut another 4 X 1/2" strip of chocolate chip, punching two more holes. Mount to left pocket about 1/4" from bottom. Stamp large flower from baroque motifs in chocolate chip on soft sky and mount over folded back corner with dimensionals.
Large tags in pockets are 3.5" x 3" - Sahara Sand, corner rounded at the top. Paper "ribbons" are 2 X 1/2" strips of soft sky, adhered to the tags with a diamond brad.
Belly band is a 1/2" strip of soft sky - about 10" long, and just folded around the wallet and secured with a rhinestone brad. Tag on front is stamped with the riveting set, and then another small flower is punched and mounted in the center.

Thank goodness you were able to figure this out. I have been over my notes and gone over the pics I took at Convention with his demonstration and they did me no good! All I wrote down was "12x4 two strips"
It's so hard to write and watch at the same time. Thank you for passing it on.
