Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Tonight we are featuring Gray Granite!!!
I have made a Pocket card, but it’s no ordinary Pocket card as it has a hidden surprise inside. Read on to find out more!
The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is the feature, along with the Dashing Deer bundle. You may recognise that deer from a recent card I made. I had stamped a few extra and it was perfect for this card too.
The full instructions are written below, but I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this and added the Circle Tab Punch pull tab to the card inside.
Can you see what may be inside?!! Yes a gift card.
The belly band is created with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and held together with White Baker’s Twine. I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite on white card and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut it out, but it was too big, so I cut it down at the top and bottom! A piece of Whisper White card is added to the back of the insert to add your message.
I can see I will make quite a few of these for Christmas gifts this year!
Instructions on how to make your own Pocket card:
To make your own pocket card with secret gift card inside, use the envelope punch board and make an envelope using 7½” x 7½” card, scored at 3” on EPB.
Cut off the top flap. Do not glue it together until the card insert is made and inserted.
Card insert: 3½” x 7” score a 2”.
Place Tear & Tape along the side edges of the flap only and fold up to create the pocket for the gift card.
Using the Circle Tab Punch cut x 1 in the same cardstock colour.
Using the ¾” circle punch, cut 2 x DSP. Glue these to the circle tab punch piece.
Fold in half and glue it to the top, centre of the card insert.
Now that the card insert is inside the envelope, you can glue the flap to hold it together.
Cut a piece of DSP 7½” x 2” and punch both ends with the scallop tag topper punch.
Wrap it around the card and tie together with a piece of 11” baker’s twine.
Decorate as desired.
You can leave it loose like a belly band or glue it to the envelope to hold it in place!
