Just Add Ink 182

Posted on

Good day! I had a nice productive Saturday, other than sleeping in a little late! I ran some errands, got a much needed haircut and got a lot of projects finished. I had to make a bunch of thank you cards for my birthday gifts and I have some hops and swaps coming up too. It was chilly here today, definitely felt fall like and crisp. I still kept the shorts and flip-flops and just added a hoodie. What were you all up to today?

For today’s post I have my card for this week’s Just Add Ink. This time they ask us to add a frame and we know I love frames!!

The card I made is a pocket card. It’s relatively simple to make, you just need to grab your Simply Scored, Big Shot and Squares Collection Framelits. I used Whisper White Card Stock for the base of my project. It is cut to 5 1/2″ x 6 1/4″ and I scored it at 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ on the long side and 1/4″ on the short side. The window is cut out with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies and so is the frame, from Soft Sky. I rounded the top corners of both the frame and the pocket with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. The pocket is stamped with the A Banner Christmas Stamp Set in Old Olive, Soft Sky and Real Red. under Christmas I adhered a thin piece of Soft Sky and some red sequins are on either side. For the piece that slides inside I cut a piece of Whisper White to 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″, rounded the corners and punched a hole in the top. I used the Warmth and Wonder Host(ess) Stamp Set and my Stamp-a-ma-jig for all of the images. A piece of Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon is tied through the hole in the top to make it easier to pull out. I needed a custom envelope so I used my Envelope Score Board and some Whisper White to make one. A strip of Season of Style Designer Washi Tape goes across the bottom and the pattern matches the stamped image on the front of the card. The pocket card is a nice change from the ordinary and you could do so many different things with it. I’m sure this won’t be the last one that you see on here! Thanks very much for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Just Add Ink – just add frames challenge. I hope you enjoyed the project and have a fun Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‚
