It's been a while since I've posted as once again I'm engrossed in sport, this time the Paralympics. And all I can say is WOW! Absolutely amazing to watch! I shed a few tears during the Olympics but this is ridiculous! I'm loving every minute of it.
But anyway, another Friday is upon us and that means it's time for another challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog! We're up to P and theme this time is...
P for Pocket Card (or a pocket on your work)
I've made cards with pockets before but I've never made a pocket card before so it was a new experience for me. Here's what I did:
The image is "Happy couple" by Tiddlyinks and I coloured it with the following copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Dress;YR24,23,21,00,R32. Shirt;YG97,67,45. Suit; 100,C9,7,6. Roses;R37,24. Hair;E49,39,35,33.
The papers are Basic Grey, Porcelain. I used a Stampin' Up! scalloped edge punch on lot's of strips of the paper curled them a little and then stuck them down on a piece of card. I then used a Spellbinder oval die to cut out the shape. Not surprisingly, the die didn't cut through all the layers of card so I had to finish the job with my scissors. I die-cut a scalloped oval out of black card and attached to the frilly oval after I had re-curled the layers. The flowers are vintage ones I've had for a while.
The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with Stampin' Up! punches. The ribbon is from my stash.
The inside uses the same papers and another Stampin' Up punch for the tab. The names are computer generated and the "Congratulations" is a Stampin' Up! stamp from the "Wedding sweet" set. The inside also has it's own little pocket for adding the gift!
So pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog for lot's of inspiration for Pocket cards and join in!
