Cut a 3 1/2" wide strip from the bottom of sheet AG1078, including the Anna Griffin bar code, and another from the top of the sheet. Set the center section aside for the card. On both 3 1/2" wide strips cut along the lines and circles in the pattern to make the zig zag edge. (Pattern included)

To make the pocket, cut a 12" x 4" strip of AG1079. Cut a 12" x 1" strip AG1070. Adhere 1/2" behind the lower edge of strip. Cut edge with decorative scissors.
Score one 3 1/2" strip the length of the strip in the center of the circles about 2" from the zig zag edge. [or 1  7/16" from the straight edge] Fold back.
Adhere along fold to the inside top of pocket, folding the zig zag edge to the front. Adhere each “point” with a pop dot.
Place ribbon corsage in center. Adhere to page [AG1080] just up from the bottom edge on three sides to make the pocket.

Step 1
Cut the 8 1/2" x 11" ivory cardstock and AG1080 to 10" x 7". Score and fold in half to make a 5" x 7" card. Adhere together.
Step 2
Cut a 1 3/4" x 7" strip AG1079. Cut two 1/2" x 7" strips AG1070. Adhere along the edges of the 1 3/4" strip with just a little pink showing. Adhere vertically to center of card.
Step 3
Cut a diamond shape along the lines and circles from the AG1078 piece set aside from pocket page.
Center and adhere to card with pop dots. Add embroidered tag to center with pop dots.  [I choose to add the embroidered tag last.  Whichever is fine.]
Step 4

Cut four small sections of lines from the scraps of AG1078. Adhere under each circle of the diamond, extending out to the edges of the card. Trim ends to size. [Add embroidered tag to center with pop dots. I thought the tag was a little flimsy for pop dots.]
Done!
