Another version of the double pocket card. This card uses a few more die cuts than the other card. I did make 3 tags for this card so that each of us has a tag to decorate for my hubby.
Tools used include: double pocket template from Paper Wishes , Banner Party stamps by Fun Stamper’s Journey (FSJ), Pennant Die by FSJ, Just Men stamps by The Rubber Cafe, Chalk Studio by My Mind’s Eye, Tags by Sizzix, Letter dies by Tattered Lace, Star punch and twine.
Please share you Father’s Day Creations.
As promised, the Father’s Day double pocket card. If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, the template comes from Hot Off The Press at Paper Wishes http://www.Paperwishes.com
I wanted to make cards this year that each child could create a piece of. I thought these pockets were perfect. I created a tag for each child to decorate and write their special message to Daddy. I did stencil the backgrounds to give them a little flare 🙂 The pockets can also be used to tuck gift cards into.
FYI, the card can be folded flat to mail. The finished card measures 3.75 x 5.5″
Check back on Wednesday for the Best Dad Double Pocket Card.
This week I wanted to highlight some fun shaped cards. These double pocket cards are from Hot Off the Press via Paper Wishes (www.Paperwishes.com) They have a vast array of shaped cards(and everything else you need too) for purchase. They have great specials on different days of the week. Sign up to be on their email list so you don’t miss their amazing bundles and discounts.
For these cards, I used my original as a template and created them with double sided papers. They come as white card stock.
Since Father’s Day is around the corner, I will start with the Father’s Day cards and then the Birthday card.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Happy Father’s Day Double Pocket Card.
Spreading sunshine the old fashioned way!
This card has a lot of elements inspired by my die cut extras drawer. I enjoy a challenge to try and find coordinating pieces to make a beautiful card for someone.
My supplies included: Elizabeth Craft Stitched Circle dies, Heartfelt Creations (HC) Ornate Borders and Pockets, HC Cut Mat Create 2B, HC Blazing Poppy, HC Delicate Border Basics, HC Classic Border Basics, HC Arianna Lace, Aged Mahogany Distress Ink by Tim Holtz (TH), TH Spun Sugar, TH Bundled Sage, Frosted Lace Stickles
I would love to see what you create from your “extras drawer”. Please share.
As always, remember to share your sunshine with others.
This floral notecard is easily done with any embossing folder. I gently ran the ink pad over the raised portion of the embossed paper. I embellished with die cuts and a flower.
Have a great rest of the week.
For shadowing my die cut, I cut the die twice. Once in black and once in white. I applied double sided tape to the back side of the black image and then offset it when I layered it on top of the white image.
I embellished the die cuts with 3 small pink roses. I left the right side of my die cut unattached in case I want to use it as a pocket for my sentiment later. I might use this as a wedding card, I haven’t decided yet.
As always, share your sunshine!
Using a black tag, I embossed white butterflies onto the background. I layered die cuts and more embossed butterflies to finish the tag.
Another way to share your sunshine with others. Tie this onto someones coffee mug in the morning to start their day with a smile.
This fun pop up Birthday card is a must have for your card stash. I like to keep extra birthday cards handy.
