Pocket Card - Technique Class

During my last technique class we had prepared a few Mother's Day related projects, one of them being this Happy Mother's Day pocket card.

I used a technique from Split Coast Stampers (Trifold Pocket Card):

Here is the individual pieces before assembled.

Products Used:
  • Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (retired, but you can use any of your favorite designer series paper)
  • Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
  • Baroque Motifs stampset
  • Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Ribbon
  • Pretties Kit (large silk flower)
  • Floral brads
  • Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Blush Blossom re-inkers
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • SNAIL adhesive
  • Pop-up Glue Dots

What I did:

  1. Cut an 8 x 8-1/2 piece of designer series paper.
  2. Scored it at 2-1/4 and 6-1/4.
  3. Turn 90 degrees and then score at 2-1/2. See pieces pictured above.
  4. Cut out the 2 bottom squares.
  5. I used a round bowl to manually trace and cut the rounded edge at the top.
  6. NOTE: Used the same round bowl to manually cut/curve the Whisper White and Chocolate Chip pieced used for the inside (for the greeting).
  7. I then stamped some Baroque Swirls on the Whisper White, then adhered to the Chocolate Chip paper.
  8. Then for the stip, I cut a 2-1/2 inch of Chocolate Chip cardstock, then a 2-1/4 inch piece of designer series paper and adhered to the Chocolate Chip. Wrapped about and trimmed.
  9. Then wrap and cut/adhere the Chocolate Chip Double Stitched ribbon.
  10. Then dyed the flower with the re-inkers and set aside to dry. Use a napkin to dry it faster.
  11. Then use a flower brad thru both flowers (one dyed flower, one large silk flower).
  12. Then adhere the flower to the ban using a Pop-up Glue Dot.
  13. Fold the pocket card at the score marks and assemble all the pieces.

Happy Stamping!
