Hi!
When I do these types of cards this time of year I use a snowflake wheel, blue ink and white cardstock for the basic design. Then I stamp "Merry Christmas" on a small piece of white cardstock, add a layer of blue cardstock and attach to the completed snowflake pocket. I use hot chocolate
I'll be making 70 of these style pocket cards some for my children to pass out to teachers and yard supervisors at school and the rest I will pass out at the school where I work. That's why I use the wheels for quick designs. They also make great party favors for open houses, you could also make smaller cards and use flavored, individually wrapped teas. Bigelow has some Gingerbread and Eggnog flavored teas out right now. SU's gingerbread man wheel would be cute used with the gingerbread tea.
Have fun.

Keri - your cards and pouches are just lovely. Very versatile - good all year with your designs, these would work nicely with seed packets or Kool Aid or crystal light in the spring and summer.

Thanks for sharing such excellent instructions.

That baby announcement is so pretty - makes me wish I could re-do mine. I already have them all done to send out - I just need to add a pic to them. Now tho I don't want to send them! Yours is so much cuter!

Thanks for sharing the directions. I love the ideas about baby announcements.

I think I'll be using the Pocket Holder directions to put packets of flower seeds into that my DD picked out to for her preschool teacher to go with the clay pot she painted a rainbow on for her end of school gifts.

I copied and pasted Keri's directions and pictures into a word document, hope someone can use this like this. I am going to print it and put it into my folder that I keep for ideas.

LIsa,

BIG thanks to you for creating and sharing the word doc! Just what I was going to do (except I hadn't thought about the sharing part - don't know how to do that yet - I guess I MUST learn, huh???)

Oh that is a cute idea too!!! I will have to remember this!!!

I also have found these are perfect for placing gift cards on the insert! Just add a little mono to the card and stick it to the insert!
