Gratitude….something I feel every day! There are so many blessings in my life and stamping is for sure one of them! Having that crafty getaway (even if it’s just a few minutes before the baby wakes) and all of you in my life make me feel so much joy! Especially during this pandemic when we are staying home more, I have found that I’m not lonely because of all of you! I just jump on a Facebook Live and there you all are. It warms my heart and makes me love what I do even more!!! Thank you to all of you! You mean SO MUCH to me!
Okay, now let’s get back to stamping and this beautiful card!!! I did a similar one recently which you can check out here! This card style is just so much fun and I find myself drawn to it all the time now! It’s like my new basic card style!
The Soft Succulent 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. On the bottom portion, I used Tear And Tape along the sides to secure the pocket. Then I added a piece of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the bottom piece (5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″).
On the top, I took a piece of Pear Pizzazz (2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″) and die cut it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Then using the label from the coordinating Christmas Season Dies, I stamped the greeting “Gratitude” in Evening Evergreen Ink from the Well Defined Stamp Set! For a little bit of extra fun, I stamped a greenery piece from the Christmas Season Stamp Set over the greeting in Soft Succulent. This greenery piece was stamped off once and sometimes twice before stamping on the label for that VERY subtle look. You don’t want to over shadow the greeting! Before adding it to the card front, I added some loops of Linen Thread to the back, securing it with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
For the pocket card piece, I used that same greenery stamp to stamp on the left hand side. I stamped it twice without going back to the ink. This pulls it all together to match. You could also stamp the envelope with that same image. The inside pocket card measures 3″ x 4-1/4″ Basic White layered onto Pear Pizzazz measuring 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″.
I hope you try out this fun Pocket Style Gratitude card and love it as much as me! It’s fun to mix it up now and again! All of the supplies I used are linked below for easy shopping and don’t forget that every $50 you spend, you get to pick out a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!
