Time for a new challenge at Catch the Bug and being the first one of the month the theme is anything goes. This time I have had my first go at a pocket card, at least I think that is what it is called! I saw it on a challenge blog but now cannot find the post or remember which blog it was!
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Thank You Tulip Block
Whimsy Stamps – Party Papers (Facebook Freebie not available in store)
X-Press It card
gold miri card
2x square card blanks
yellow tulip – Y02, Y16, Y17
pink tulip – R81, RV32, RV34
leaves – YG00, YG23, YG17, G29
butterfly – R29, R39, R59, R89 C5, C7, C9 Black W9
sky – B000, B21, B23, B24
The complete image and just the tulip heads are printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. I did not want the black border around the block so I trimmed it off then matted it on gold mirri card. On the back I added a piece of the printed Whimsy paper so that a longer greeting or message could be written on it.
The card base is made using two square card blanks each with the front cut in half diagonally but in opposite directions. The backs are then stuck together leaving the fronts to form the pocket. Before assembling the inside and front flaps are covered with the printed paper matted on gold. The two flaps are stuck at the bottom edge.
The centre decoration is made using the extra tulip heads and a bit of leaf cut out and stuck with gel glue onto a circle of the printed paper matted on gold. The greeting card then slips into the pocket.
I really like this format of card so I think I may do some more in the future. They do make a change from the more traditional format of card.
I hope you will join us at Catch the Bug for this week’s challenge. Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
