Today I am sharing a pocket card designed using stamps, dies and paper from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
If you have not had time to check out the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Cut the striped piece of Blossom designer paper to approx. 5 ¼” x 5 ¼”. Trim off a 2” strip off the bottom of the panel, emboss the larger portion with the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder, lightly sand the embossing with a sanding block and distress the edges.
Mount onto a piece of 5 ½” x 5 ½” dark navy cardstock, distress the edges and set and adhere the entire card panel onto a 5 ½” x 11” dark navy cardstock base.
To create the pocket- adhere the 2” portion of the striped designer paper (cut from the step above) onto a piece of dark navy cardstock and distress the outside edges only. Add a strip of ivory Venise lace (approx. 1” below the upper edge), adhere the border strip cut from the Blossom 8x8 paper pad to the top portion (this layer should cover the raw edge of the lace).
Mount the pocket onto the embossed/layered front panel using adhesive only on the sides and bottom. Add a piece of sage twill ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel.
a piece of Luxury
Pearlescent Quartz Metallic 105# Cardstock with a
n embossing powder tool, ink the verse sentiment from He Has Risen with a black pigment ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Die cut the sentiment with the medium oval die from the Hemstitch Oval Dies, die cut another oval from dark navy cardstock, cut the navy oval in half, and adhere behind the sentiment oval. Mount onto the pocket layer using adhesive only on the bottom half of the oval (to allow the pocket feature to function).
Trim two pieces of ivory cardstock to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”. De-static each with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiments from Birthday Blessings with a pigment black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Adhere to the inside of the card and use strips of the Blossom pink floral pattern to cover the edges (this is the reverse side of the green striped pattern).
Trim the two cut-a-parts from the Blossom paper pad, mount onto dark navy cardstock and add a piece of ivory cardstock to the back (for journaling or adding a hand-written message).
Tuck the two journaling cards into the front pocket, and to finish off the card, add a few pearls to the sentiment oval and upper left-hand corner of the card.
