Hi! Today I have another card featuring the Best Catch bundle from the Occasions Catalog.
Love how this card turned out – and it is a pocket card – so you can tuck a little gift card or your note right there.
For this card, I sponged Balmy Blue and So Saffron ink on pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Wood Textures pack. The fisherman is stamped in StazOn Jet Black ink. The base of the card is Balmy Blue. A little burlap ribbon to finish it off.
For the base, start with a piece of Balmy Blue measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ edge. Slide the score line to the 2″ mark and cut (this allows you to create the pocket). From the same sheet of Designer Series Paper, cut one piece 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and another 5 1/4″ x 1 3/4″. Save a scrap for the sentiment. On the larger piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the bottom and So Saffron on the top to create the water and sunset. Then stamp the fisherman. On the smaller piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the top and Old Olive on the bottom (hard to see in this picture given the ribbon). Use the envelope punch board to round all the corners. Attach the top piece to the Balmy Blue base. Use Tear & Tape on just the two sides of the lower flap and adhere to make the pocket. Wrap the ribbon around the Designer Series Paper before attaching to the front of the pocket. Add your sentiment and done!
