Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal. I have a really cute card for you today! I just recently found this Pocket Front card technique on Splitcoaststampers, and I wanted to try it for you today. Then, I used the All Things Fabulous stamp set and dies to use all of the beautiful new In Colors. Do you have a favorite yet?? If you do, please let me know in a comment!
My secrets to making this project
- Following this Splitcoaststamper’s Pocket Front tutorial, the card base came together so quickly! Firstly, I cut the Soft Succulent cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4.” Then, I measured the card front at 2 3/4″ on all three edges and scored to make triangles.
- After that, I cut the pretty designer paper to cover all of the areas and the card base was ready to go!
Now, the FUN Part!
- Firstly, I started the process of the three step stamping for all of the flowers by stamping the large stamp first and working my way to the smallest. Although some stampers will say to begin the the smallest one first, I find that more difficult to line up. In the end, just do it the way you feel more comfortable with. Then, I stamped the leaves in both Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
- After that was completed, I headed to my die cutting machine, cut them all out and began arranging them in and around the pocket. Before popping the top flowers, I adhered a loopy bow underneath.
- Then, I stamped the sentiment, cutting it to 1/2″ and rounded the ends with the Treasured Tags punch.
- Finally, I added the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels for the oh-so-necessary bling.
- Although I have completed the inside of the card, I purposely left off any sentiment so that this card could be used for any occasion. And, I think adding it to the die that was cut and adhered to the top area would be a great place for it, leaving the bottom portion for a personal message.
