Here's another fun project idea using Hanna Stamps Perfect Package set. I also used the snowflake from 'Tis the Season, and For You from another brand new set called Things Hanna Would Say. This is a fun version of a pocket card that folds at the bottom of the card and is secured under the button. The pocket is small and perfectly sized for gift cards or tags as you see here. The finished card will fit in a standard A2 envelope as it is 4.25 x 5.5.
I'll come back and post deets in a bit, it's movie night and I'm late for the show!
ETA: the deets:
Supplies for card:
1- 4.25 x 11 inch piece of card stock.
Your choice of papers and embellishments.
Corner rounder and Circle punches
Stamps and ink *wink*
Score the card stock at 1.5" and again at 5.5" I use a wonderful tool for all my scoring needs, the Scor-Pal, I just LOVE it! Fold on each score, creating a small pocket on inside bottom. This area is held together by the ribbon that wraps around the card, no need for staples or sticky strip unless you want that to be part of your design.
The card stays closed by tucking the front flap under the button embellishment. After decorating the front portion of the card, place the button so that the top edge of the pocket tucks under the button. Not so tight that you have to really bend the card to open and close it, just enough to keep it comfortably closed.
The tags on the inside were stamped with the tag image, from Hanna's Perfect Package set, onto Chatterbox patterned paper. The sentiment is also from a new release called Things Hanna Would Say; over 25 sentiments that are perfectly sized. After stamping the tags were cut out and hole punched. The image was quickly colored with reinkers and a watercolor brush. Stickles were applied on the bow and ribbon and a silver cord tied to each tag.
For Hanna herself, she's colored the same way, with reinkers and a watercolor brush. She's matted on Night of Navy. Taking a cue from Debbie Olson, I notched the image layer to make room for the bow on the left side. The completed image is mounted to the card with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by!
