In the supplies that were sent to me for my Cutcardstock post today were Basis A-7 Perfect Pockets.  And one of them was orange.  As I was trying to think of something brilliant to make I thought of my friend Amy and her annual Halloween party. So I decided to design a Halloween party invitation.


I began with my Halloween in Wonderland 8x8 pad of paper by Graphic 45.  It matches the orange and dark purple Basis card stock perfectly.  I also used some dies, a black Pearl pen and some gems.  Then the fun began.  I just cut paper to fit all the panels of the Perfect Pocket and added a few embellishments.

When you flip back the front flap, this is what you see................
 
Then when you flip down the bottom panel , you see the inside.......

Here are some closeups of the great papers and embellishments.  
Bottom front flap...

Inside top flap....

Inside center panel, I gave the Mad Hatter a watch.....

And then the Pocket panel with the invitation...

Now I know it is not Halloween but this was so much fun.  However, can you imagine making a graduation card with each of the panels dedicated to the life of the student and a great gift card in the pocket.  Or how about a wedding card with fabulous pics of the happy couple.  The possibilities are endless.  Finished size of my Perfect Pocket invitation is 5 x 7 inches.
