Good morning! I hope that everyone got through Monday ok. Mine was a bit challenging but I survived! Today’s card uses what I think is safe to say is my favorite stamp set, French Foliage. I love the detail and the depth in the stamps and the fact that it all looks so great together. This card is also not your average everyday card, it’s a pocket card. Essentially it’s a card front with a pocket on it to slide the message into. I started with a base of Early Espresso. I added a piece of Cajun Craze Card Stock to that. The pocket is quite simple to make using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I used a piece of Crumb Cake cut to 4 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. I scored it on the short side at 1/2″ and 4″. I turned it 90 degrees and scored it on the long side at 4″. On the longer piece I cut off the outside scored pieces and used the 3/16″ Corner Rounder to round the inside flaps and the top. A line of Sticky Strip on each reaming flap and a fold and the pocket is finished. I stamped the images from the French Foliage Stamp Set in Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso on Very Vanilla Card Stock. Three Silver Mini Brads were added and then that was then adhered to another piece of Early Espresso Card Stock and mounted to the front of the pocket. I used the Round Tab Punch to make the pull for the piece that slides in. To finish off the card I placed a piece of Early Espresso 1/8″ Ribbon across the bottom and tied it off. I think that it’s a nice change from the everyday card and hope that you like it too. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
