Happy Friday friends! I'm bringing you this week's Papertrey Ink Design Team Tips!
I love to create interactive cards! Almost as much as I love to add layers to my creations! Ha! Well, this week I'm sharing one of my favorite ways to create a simple yet fun interactive card.
Using the standard 1/2 sheet of a 81/2" x 11" piece of cardstock, I created a pocket card base. There are so many different items you can tuck into pocket cards: magnets, bookmarks, tags, gift cards, and personalized notes.
I created a coordinating personalized note card to tuck into my pocket. I decorated the front of the pocket with a bouquet of flowers, stamped with the Stitching Garden stamp set and coordinating Stitching Garden die set.
These are so easy to create! I started with a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 11". I scored it twice (photo and measurements are below) and then used one of the To the Point Edgers II dies to create a decorative edge. Using very strong adhesive, I secured the sides of the flap to create the pocket.
For the little note card, I cut a 3 1/2" square piece of Aqua Mist cardstock. I sponged some Aqua Mist ink on a piece of white cardstock using one of the Stencil Basics: Dots stencils and then adhered it to the Aqua Mist layer.
I added some more stamped and die cut Stitching Garden flowers. For the sentiment, I die cut and stamped one of the sentiments from the Penned Elegance stamp set. For a little added dimension, I popped it up with foam adhesive.
Here's a photo of cut and scored cardstock base. I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock. I scored it at 4 1/4" and then 8 1/2". The little 2 1/2" flap is your pocket flap. You can adhere the sides to create a straight pocket edge, or use a decorative edge die like I did on my card above.
I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial and hope you give this fun technique a try!
