Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. We have our youngest grandson here for the day. He spent the night with us which is always good for him and we love having him. Thought I would get this blog post done before he wakes up and our day starts.
Today is my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog. So let's get started with the details on how I created my card. I am featuring a new die set from the May release. I have used the Fancy Pocket Plus die along with dies from the March Nautical release and created a Father's Day card. This big day is approaching quickly so time to get busy making a card for your Dad, hubby, sons etc.
I started my card this week with the idea of using the Fancy Pocket Plus die and from there my Father's Day card developed. Once I decided on a nautical theme, I looked through my designer paper stash to see what would work best. I already had my color scheme somewhat figured out. I found this Stmpin'-Up "nautical expedition" collection that had a map on it and one of the colors I wanted to use.
Card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"Designer paper: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
After it's cut all you have to do is fold on the score lines and then tape together. Easy Peasy! I used Scor-tape to secure it. It's a strong double sided adhesive so you don't have to worry about the pocket coming apart.
The outside of the pocket is adorned with the pelican die and some starfish cut with the paddles & rope ladder die. I added a small clip to the insert to make it easy to remove from the pocket and for added interest.
I taped this pocket to the front of my card base along with a sailboat. Used the sailboat large die and cut with a deep red cardstock to complete the front of my card.
Stamped another sentiment on the inside and also decorated it with the rope from the paddles & rope ladder die and a crab using the crab die.
Until next time.........God bless.
