What do you think about purple for Christmas? I love it! It’s a beautiful royal color and it brings a significance to any project. Today I’m using it on a fun pocket card. This card has layers of Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather cardstock, and Gorgeous Grape Ombre Specialty Paper.

The Ombre paper is like glimmer paper, very sparkly! Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to create this fun pocket card:

My featured card is very “stepped up.” I also made some pocket cards using the same card base, but with decorations that are a bit simpler.

The Card base of the color cardstock you choose, should be cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″ and 1-14″ To decorate the front of the card, us a lighter cardstock 3-3/4″ square, and create a frame behind it of a piece of cardstock 4″ square. For the pull-out piece, cut a narrow colored piece 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ and place it behind behind a Basic White piece 5″ x 3.”
