Heart of gold... or two hearts of gold. Whatever!

Ahem ahem!
I made a pocket card! Yay! Not a first for me, but definitely a first using the two way tape technique. This one’s much easier, because the one I used to make was different than this. Say, like you make a box. It had little gap... some space so that the card could be pulled out easily. But I like this better. Less time consuming :o)
Alright, I wanted the front to have a tied up kind of look. This is why I used jute, gold dori, gold net, gold thread and gold beads.

I drew the hearts on off-white card stock. Made the swirly pattern on one and painted the other gold. I have used two shades of gold. I don't think that you will be able to distinguish between the two shades.
I really wanted to do the crisscross thingy with the ribbon. This was the best way to apply that technique. If I wouldn’t have use the two way tape even then this would have hold the pocket together. Too bad I got the idea after I was done taping it up.
Oh I forgot to tell! The gorgeous paper that I have used here was sent to me by Steph! (Hi Steph!) Remember the BIG BOX OF GOODIES? Aah she has sent me the most wonderful stuff! She truly has a heart of gold!

The flap inside the pocket is plain. I wanted to make two very tiny hearts and stick them either at the top-middle part or bottom-right. They would have looked so cute. But I am a lazy ass. LOL

I used my brown marker to make the border and then used a gold marker for the edging.
