Look who’s new on the block!

It’s our Bear Pocket Pal!

Bear can be a girl or a boy… or a just plain BEAR. (Yes, we cheated and used a butterfly in place of a bow.)

Like all Pocket Pals, Bear fits in our pockets! He recently joined some other circus friends for a trip to a young lady down the street for a birthday surprise.

Outdoor fun and celebrations during the summer are often held under tents or canopies. We’ve created some cards to help you enjoy the fun of tents!

The Circus tent card is great for Birthday wishes, children’s party invitations, or just sending a special greeting/gift to someone special.

The Tent Invitation omits the flag at the top, and extends the size of the tent a little. Included is a card for printing invitation details. Family reunions, backyard barbecues…any summer celebration!

As with all of our cards, the pocket is there for your creative use! Wording can always be changed if you like the “tent” but not the “message”.

Don’t forget that Pocket Pals fit in as well. Here is our brand new Bear. Perfect for the circus card!

Seriously, isn’t he just adorable!

Just this week on a local website was a request for birthday cards for a young lady whose mom is still recovering from Covid. Circus Tent and Pocket Pals to the rescue!

Personalize the outside band. We used Cricut’s new Kerning feature on this font! Can you see the Pocket Pals barely peeking out on the top?

Download our versatile tent cards and the bear pocket pal today. We think you are going to find a lot of uses for this one.

What’s behind the locked gates at the Secret Garden? Can you see a hint through the lattice?

Unhook the lock and view the beautiful fountain.

Complete with a bird just waiting to take advantage of the shower!

If you remember the story of the Secret Garden, what lies within the gates helps to heal those who go inside and transform it back to it’s former beauty.

This card would make a wonderful “get well” card, where you can add your own well wishes to the pocket just behind the fountain.

Or would even make a fun-to-receive Birthday Card

Both of the above sentiments are included with the SVG download. However, with some imagination, this could also be used as a Thank You card, a “missing you” card, or even for an anniversary. Feel free to add bugs or butterflies… or to change the colors of the flowers. It’s yours to personalize! Even the bird can be changed (see our Bluebird Card post for the Robins!)

We used a white textured cardstock for the main card. Cricut glitter gel pen was used for the fountain spray. The fountain itself is a marbled glitter paper that was sent as a freebie from 12 x 12 cardstock (We scribed the detail lines on the fountain with a dark gray fine point Cricut pen). Flowers were done with red glitter cardstock, and the red sentiments were written with Cricut Very Berry fine tip pen. The lock was cut from a scrap of silver metallic card stock.

Send something bright and cheerful for your next occasion!

This top-fold card has Daisies on the outside…

And daisies on the inside!

Add a sentiment and use this card for just about any occasion! This could just as easily be “Happy Birthday”, “Congratulations”, “Missing You”, or “Happy Mother’s Day”.

In fact, a cute little 5 year old we know was visiting our home office, and requested this card, but wanted the daisies to be blue, purple, and pink. (“My mommy’s favorite colors”) So we changed it up for her. What we did NOT do was take a picture of it before she put it in an envelope. Drat! (By the way, she wrote “I love you” on a piece of heart shaped cardstock and popped it in the pocket).

It’s hard to show the dimension that the layers create… but we hope you can see it somewhat:

We’d love to see how you have changed up this versatile card. Feel free to post here on the blog or show us some pictures on our Facebook Page. And don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter!
