CottageCutz Challenge #3 - POCKET

Hi, Vladka is here!

Thank you very much for all your great cards and projects you've made for Challenge #2. Two lucky winners will be announced at the end of this post. So, stay tuned.

And here is time to start new challenge. 
This time theme is POCKET. 

So, create a pocket on your card or on any other project an decorate it with CottageCutz dies.
And please, use ONLY CottageCutz dies and not any other dies. "Add your link" button is available under the list of used dies. If you are not familiar with this button, please check this post for more explanation. Challenge will be closed on 30th of June!

Ok, let's go to my project. I hope this will inspire you a little bit. 

Here is list of all supplies I used:
Cardstock: kraft Cardstock for the pocket and white cardstock for butterflies and greenery 
CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink: Peeled Paint
Other: Scissors, Sizzix machine

I made a really simple pocket with new Posey Pocket die and used it for summer table decoration. All you need to do is to cut it out with kraft cardstock and cut off the lower fold, so that pocket is open also there. Glue it just on the side. So, you will be able to put cutlery through the pocket:

With Leafy Swirls cut some greenery out of white cardstock and colored it with Peeled Paint distress ink:

For the finish touch cut the butterflies out with butterfly die (I used Fancy Pocket Plus die) and white cardstock. Glue everything together as shown on the photo. 

So, this is my project for today and I can't wait to see yours. 


And now go back to our challenge a little bit more. As I told you before, two lucky winners will be randomly chosen and will get gift certificate for Scrapping Cottage store.

First one will get gift certificate value of 50$...

... and second one in the value of 25$.

You have time till 30th of June to participate. 
Both winners will be announced in the same post as new challenge (for June) will begin.

All you need to do is take your CottageCutz dies and start creating! 
Please, use only CottageCutz dies!
Have fun and don´t forget to show us all your projects.
