Need a card with a pocket?
I just realized yesterday that it's my youngest grandson's birthday in a couple days. So started a card for him, and then a couple people stopped by to shop from my totes, this year's version of a craft fair, so I stopped in the middle.
Typically, I don't work on Sundays so after my friends left yesterday all I could manage to do was make a grill cheese sandwich for supper and watch Ocean's 11. I was asleep by 9:30 and awake by 5:30. A few more friends are stopping by today to shop from my totes in my living room. An impromptu sale from 2:00 to 5:00. So after I cleaned up my kitchen and set up a couple of folding tables, I got down to finishing my grandson's card (after I checked with his oldest brother if D was still interested in Captain America. Thumbs up!!! Good to know!
The colors are Real Red and (retired) Pacific Point. You can't really see it by I used clear embossing powder on each of the circles to give it a shiny appearance. I would have loved to use foil but I don't have blue foil. Then I would have used silver instead of white, but, alas, we have to use what we have. Right?
The embossing folder is an old one that from Cricut that I have had for years. I wanted to use another that looks like diamond plating but couldn't find that. The star is from a retired set of stars. I hang on to a lot of retired stuff, because "you never know when you may need it". Every hoarders mantra.
The stamps are from "A Grand Kid" also retired. Finally we come to something current! The pocket for the gift card is the "Mini Pocket Envelope Dies". Love this little set. It's perfect for a gift card or cash! The item # is 159167. It comes with some cute label dies too. LOL I think the one die looks just like a pair of sunglasses.
Well, that's enough for a Sunday morning. Now off to church from my chair. I'd love to be able to go in person, but my body often says "NO!!!"
I hope you enjoy this quick little card. I'd love to see if you use the Mini Pocket Envelope dies in one of your cards. And please, feel free to share your creations on my FB group page "Cottage Lane Stamper & Friends". I'd love to see what you are up to as we enter this holiday crafting season.
Take care my friends and God bless you!
