This very simple pocket card was created by simply rotating a pre-printed card with the gutter crease (gutter crease = main fold of a card) to the bottom, scoring a line where I wanted to fold down the front, and then trimming the front edge with deco scissors to create a pretty feminine edge. To trim with deco scissors in a straight line, I drew a pencil line and used that to guide the blade; when the flap was folded down, of course, you don't see the pencil line. Staples secure the front of the card to the back, to make the "pocket", and are concealed under the folded scallop edge. The raw edges of the ric rac are also concealed underneath there as well.
The mini brad was "pearlized" by holding it by the prongs with tweezers, heating it with a heat gun, and then dipping it into detail (fine grind) white embossing powder.
