Pocket full of fun - Free SVG

Hi, everyone!
I am still sorting through things in my craft room (one shelf or cabinet at a time! hahaha!), but I took some time to make this Pocket Card SVG.....
Pocket Card SVG

I think this would make a great little boys card, don't you?! I used Cely's free svg dog, and you can pick it up on her blog, Creating in Carolina. I chose to cut apart the paws from the base layer of her svg file, so I could place them further apart on my pocket top. (She also made a really cute little cat this week, and she made a Garfield svg, both would also work equally as well in this pocket for you cat lovers!) I did a little bit of inking on the dogs face, to give him some depth, and then I drew on his eyebrows and freckles.  :0) I distressed the edges of the "denim" pocket layer, and then I added some white gel pen faux stitching to the edges of it. I printed the sentiment out from PSE, then I cut it down and used my corner punch. I also distressed the edges of this to make it similar to the leather tags that come on jeans.
My Pocket Card SVG includes the pocket shaped card base, the front and inside base layer (for a piece of designer paper and to line the inside of the card, should you choose), and the pocket, sized as shown on the front of my card. The finished overall card size is 4.25" x 5.5" (A2).  I chose to not make this a usable pocket for my card today, but if you glue the top pocket layer on only three edges, you could slide a thin tag or other shape into it. So much possibility! :0)
