Sometimes I just get bored with a regular card. It’s like I need something new to mix it up and make it fun. This pocket style card is just that. Super cute and different from the traditional card. I love it and plan to make a lot more with this style!
The Smoky Slate card base measures 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 and I scored it at 2″ from one side and 2-1/2″ from the other side. So this is actually a 4″ x 5-1/2″ card which is just 1/4″ smaller than usual but it creates that nice overlap for the pocket! On the bottom portion, I used Tear And Tape along the sides to secure the pocket. I just like that stronger adhesive to ensure the pocket will stay together as a piece of paper slides in and out of it. Then I added a piece of the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper to the bottom piece (5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″).
Next, I used the Elegantly Said Stamp Set for all of the images. The corner image was stamped in Basic Gray and the flower stamped in Cherry Cobbler. For the inside card, I stamped the flower image off twice and then onto the cardstock for that super subtle look. You don’t want it to overpower your greeting! I love getting images and greetings out of one stamp set!!
The front focal point was stamped on Basic White (2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″) and layered onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock (2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″). The inside card measures 3″ x 4-1/4″ layered onto Cherry Cobbler measuring 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″.
