Pocket Cards

One of the ladies who regularly attends my card classes ask me the question recently "What else could you make with the Have A Cuppa Designer Series Paper pack?"  I have quite a few card samples where I have used the A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the Cups and Kettle Framelits Dies along with the Have A Cuppa Designer Series Paper, but no other projects.

So I took up the challenge and using the Pocket Card fold created two Pocket Cards, one for a Birthday and one for a Wedding.  

It was not until I really had a good look at the reverse side of these papers that I realised that they are appropriate for a lot of different occasions.

The first card is using a colour scheme of Basic Gray, Basic Black and Whisper White.

I used the stamp set Rose Wonder and the Rose Garden Thinlits dies.  The ribbon is Whisper White Seam Binding, it gives such a soft finish to the bow.

I die cut the smaller rose image and the leaves from the large rose, added some glitz with the clear Wink of Stella pen and layered them together on the card front.  Rhinestones were added to finish.

A 1 3/4" circle was folded over the top of the inside tag and a large Designer Vintage Faceted button with an Iced Rhinestone for the middle was attached using glue dots.  This allowed for an easy tab to slide the tag in and out of the card.

The second card is using a colour scheme of Bermuda Bay, Basic Black and Whisper White.  The other colours in the Designers Series Paper give a lift to the card.

Again I used the Rose Wonder stamp set.  I really like the sentiments and the outline frame in this set so you will probably see me use this set a bit in the months to come.

The embellishments on this card are quite simple, Whisper White seam binding ribbon and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper hearts punched out using the Sweetheart Punch.

Thank you for visiting.
