I started the weekend with a Friday Night In Online Retreat. It was fun and the time went fast! Today, I am sharing how to create these pocket cards during the One of a Kind virtual event. My time slot is 3:15pm. The Facebook Live video will go quick too! That’s what I like about papercrafting. I could create all day and never realize how much time has passed since I last ate;)

I have 10 boxes of these pocket card kits ready to ship on Monday. Would you like a box? It includes supplies to make 12 pocket cards with assorted designs and embellishments. Kits shipped on Monday will include the super fun gilded pumpkin design and either a kitty cat themed or puppy dog themed designs. Let me know whether you want the kitty cat or puppy dog print included when you place your order. If you want both pet designs, let me know that and I’ll swap one of the other designs for it.

Here is a closer look at all those luscious patterned papers, ribbons and embellishments included in your kit…

Order your box my clicking the Contact button at the top of my blog or PM me in Facebook and ask for the World Card Making Day Kits. I’ll PayPal invoice you for $28 and get your kit shipping to you promptly. Porch Pick Ups from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin available too.
