Nothing in this world is more precious than a new baby. So when a friend asked me to make a special card for a sweet baby girl, I wanted to do something really out of the box. My friend Julie asked for pearls and lace and tulle and satin…”make it too, too, ” she requested. “Too, too?” Can do! I designed a card that I like to call Precious Pockets. The card is a cutaway card with three hidden pockets for tucking in tags. So let’s take a look at this Precious Pockets baby card and custom box.
So there you have it: my Precious Pockets baby card and custom box made with Graphic 45 Little Darlings collection and a few items from my stash. I really enjoyed figuring out how to put this card together….and if you’d like, I’d be happy to write up a tutorial so you can make one as well. For now, I have to get on with my day. I’m taking a few days off to help my daughter Liz get settled in her new apartment. I fly out very early tomorrow morning and will be in Baltimore until the day before Easter. Easter Sunday is filled with fun family plans: Easter breakfast and egg hunt with Sophie and Julia, then Easter Dinner with the gang back at our house. So this will be my last blog post for several days. But I’ll be back next week, and will share a tutorial on how to make a custom box for those bulky hand made cards.
Thanks for taking the time to read my little blog. I hope you all have a loving and peaceful holiday weekend with your friends and families.

It makes me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Until next time…
