Hot Chocolate Holder pocket Card

Hello, my lovely and talented friends!
I made a cute 
Hot Chocolate holder Pocket Card
that I would like to share with you today!
I used
I colored little Angel cake with my copic markers 
and paper pieced her little outfit.
I started with a piece of 11"x 6 1/2" card stock
Then I scored it at
4", 4 1/2" and 8 1/2"
You will need 2 
3 3/4" x 6 1/4" card stock
topped with
3 1/2" x 6" designer paper
You will need 2
2 1/4" x 6 1/4" card stock
topped with
2" x 6" designer paper

you will need a 3 3/4" x 4"
card stock for the inside pocket
You will need a 3 3/4" x 3" piece of 
designer paper for the top of the pocket.
I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch along the edge.
Then I punched a separate piece of pink card stock to adhere 
along the bottom after I sewed the pocket on.
This is what the back looks like.
As you can see, I tucked the ribbon 
underneath the panels before adhering them on.
I added a 6 1/2" x 4" panel of blue card stock to the back.
This is what the inside looks like with the 
hot chocolate packet in the pocket.
And the front after it is decorated with
my pretty
digi stamp
MFT die-namics snowflakes
along with some pink bling!
The corner embellishment and rose are
from Wild Orchid Crafts.
