Back of the Pocket Card

When I posted the "Pocket Card" a few days ago, I forgot to post the back of the card. So here's the back. Several people has sent emails and blogged me asking how I made the pocket card, well it a little long, but I'll try to explain:
-Cut the base card @ 6 X 11" and fold in half.
-Open base card (now you have the front side of base card & back side of base card)
-Score the edge of the front side of base card about 1/4" and fold it in.
-Trim off excess back side of base card.
-Add double sided tape on "folded" front side of base card & tape it to the back side of base card.
-Add brads near the bottom of the base card (you will need to hide the back of the brads laters). The brads will serve as the stopper for the inside card.
-Cut 1st top layer @ 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" and glue to base card.
-Cut 2nd top layer @ 4 1/4 X 4 3/8" (do not adhensive yet!)
-Place ribbon (&/or) bow on the bottom of 2nd top layer, NOW glue 2nd layer to 1st layer.
-Now decorate the front on your card.
-base is cut @ 4 3/4 X 5 3/4"
-1st top layer is cut @ 4 3/8 X 5 1/2"
-Punch out a "small" circle and glue the bottom half to the back of 1st layer then glue the back bottom half to the front of 2nd layer.
-Glue 1st top layer to base iof "inside pull out card".
-Print the Serenity Prayer on the color paper you want (this will be the 2nd top layer)
-Cut the 2nd top layer (about) 4 X 5" and glue to 1st top layer.
BACK OF BASE CARD (Now you must hide the brad's you used on the front of the card)
-Just eye ball the size cardstock you need.
