Build a Bear in Your Pocket

Papertrey Ink Paper - Harvest Gold and Dark Chocolate
Patterned Paper - American Girl Crafts - Super Paper Pad
Stampin Up - Regal Rose Card stock, Build-A-Bear Die, Build-A-Bear stamp set and dimensionals
Wal-Mart - Flower Buttons and Glue Dots
JoAnns - Martha Stewart Black Ink Pad, Zig 2-way glue pen and Stampendous Stamp Set
The Tape Depot - ATG Refills

The card base was cut at 8 X 8 and scored in half, making it a 4 X 8 card. It will fit perfectly in a business size envelope.
The polka dot paper was cut into a 3.5 X 3.5 square with a .50 X 3.5 rectangle placed on top to make a faux cuff. The entire pocket was faux stitched on all four sides and on  the faux cuff. The pocket was then glued down on 3 sides with my ATG gun. Being very careful to stay as close to the edge to keep room for my bear to fit in. The cuff was raised up on dimensionals for a little added texture and depth. I then placed the flower buttons on the left side to make the pocket look like it's off to the side of a shirt.
