I just love pockets~ all sorts and I love layers. I made this card I made for a challenge and it has both…
I began with a plain glassine envelope, dye cutting the top edge. Inside, there is a tan pocket made from card stock. It also has a die cut top edge, cut with Edgelits Addorning Accents from Stampin’Up. A panel of hand written sheet music on the tan pocket, peeks through the glassine to make a background for the embellishments.
The bright pink flourishes were die cut from Papertrey Ink’s ‘Fancy Flourishes’. The flowers, which are made with layered stamping and the sentiment, are from the ‘Natural Beauties’ stamp set, also PTI.
A panel to hold a personal message or perhaps a photo… As I’m thinking about it, I think a special photo would be the best surprise. This panel was cut from white card stock, layered with another smaller panel from Prima’s ‘Printery’ paper pad, die cut along the top edge with the same Edger’s Collection #1 die from PTI, as the glassine envelope. For a bit of unexpected texture, I embossed that top edge with pewter embossing powder from Stampin’Up. Another small flourish in the top corner, just because.
I enjoyed working from inspiration photo below. It took me in a direction I wasn’t expecting and that’s always fun!
Now all would be fine and good, but I just found out that I’m a few hours too late and the challenge has closed! Do you think I’m frazzled?!!
Hope you have a great friday. We have some fluffy white clouds today and I’m loving it! For much of the year, our skies are a cloudless turquoise blue which is beautiful in itself, but for me, the clouds are a rare(ish) treat!
