Since You Asked: More on Pocket Cards
February 23, 2014
Thought I would start another feature here on As the Ink Dries called "Since You Asked". I get emails and comments asking how I made something and here's where I will try and answer your questions. Today we have more on the Pocket Card I shared here.
I am using another of the papers from the Sweet Sorbet DSP, which I think is just a gorgeous set of papers and highly recommend it as one of your Sale-A-Bration choices. This is the card we will be making.
Here are the supplies I will be using.
- Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper
- Basic Black 8-1/2X11 Card Stock
- Whisper White 8-1/2X11 Card Stock
- Crisp Cantaloupe 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock
- Fabulous Florets - Clear-Mount Stamp
- Sweet Essentials Clear-Mount Stamp Set
- Adorning Accents Edgelits Die
- Circles Collection Framelits Dies
- Perfect Pennants Bigz Die
- 1-3/4 Inch Circle Punch
- Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack
- Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents
- Whisper White 5/8 Inch Organza Ribbon
- Snail Adhesive
- Jet Black StazOn Pad
- Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Stampin' Pad
1. Cut a 4" x 9" piece of DSP. Score at 4-1/4", 8-1/2".
2. Turn the DSP so the pattern you want to be on the inside of the pocket is facing you. Fold the 1/2" tab so it is facing you. Run SNAIL adhesive along the tab. Run SNAIL adhesive along the bottom edge of the pocket from the edge of the tab to the fold. Seal up the pocket.
3. Cut a piece of coordinating DSP and Basic Black card stock 2" x 4-1/4". Place the Adorning Accents Edgelit as shown in the picture below and run through the Big Shot. I was able to cut both of them at the same time. Hmmm, maybe it is time for some new cutting plates.
4. Layer the cut pieces as shown below and attach it to the front of the pocket. The top of the edge should not be higher than 4-3/4" . You can change the height of this depending on how much you want the inner card to show.
Don't worry I will hide this crooked edge with some ribbon.
5. Stamp the flower in Crisp Cantaloupe ink and stamp the sentiment in Black ink. Punch out using the 1-3/4" circle punch. Cut a circle using the Circles Collection Framelits out of a coordinating piece of DSP. Cut out the doily in Basic Black card stock and layer. Wrap the White Organza ribbon around the seam and attach the doily.
6. Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock 4-1/8" x 5" and a Whisper White piece 3-7/8" x 4-3/4. Layer the white onto the Basic Black piece. Punch out 3 flowers using coordinating DSP and attach it as shown below.
I hope this will help you make your own pocket cards. They are fun to make and you can change up how they look by using different edgelits, DSP, punches, dies, you get the idea. Hope you get some time today to stamp. If you need any supplies to make your own pocket cards you can shop on my online store. I would be happy to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
