Today I’ve got to send a birthday card to my nephew. He’s a teenager and always appreciates a little pocket change. Who doesn’t, right! This card is pretty quick to complete as it doesn’t have a lot of layers but still looks great. The stamp set I used is perfect! It’s a new set from the 2017-2018 Stampin Up catalog and is called Pocketful of Sunshine. It also has coordinating Pocket Framelit Dies. The pocket is ideal for holding money or gift cards. Can’t wait to play with this one for Christmas as well. Maybe a pocket on Santa’s suit? Hmmm…
I have three cards for you today. The first two are similar and I just switched the colors and labels around a bit.
Card Base: Cut 8.5" x 5.5" Score at 4.25" on long side
Cardstock colors: Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Ink colors: Dapper Denim, Marina Mist
Tag is done with a scrap piece of Real Red and embossed with White Embossing Powder
Stitching on the blue jean pockets was done with Copper Embossing Powder. Wow did it come out great! Looks just like the stitching on real jeans. I was really impressed.
The last card is done with Whisper White as the Base Card (same measurement as above) and I created a background using the pocket stitching stamp and Marina Mist ink. Pocket Framelit is using Dapper Denim cardstock, the sun is in Daffodil Delight, and the sunglasses are in Real Read for some pop of color.
