I am so excited about tonights release! I sure hope to meet you all online at the PTI forum...again, if you have any questions regarding the Shapes by design set please bring them with you and I will happily answer them.
Today's tutorial is one of my favourites. As you know from the first card that I shared with you I really enjoy cards that have a special component to them. Pocket cards are perfect because they are different from your regular day to day cards.
I began today's project by stamping a sheet 4x5.25 using black ink.
Next, I "filled" the shape using the solid circle stamp and a light green.
Then I filled the the outer edges using a green marker.
I cut out the centre image (the very small square) to mask it off from the rest of the rectangle. Next I took the rectangle stamp and stamped over the image using the light green to give it some extra colour. (see image below close to the ink pad)
I punched out the word window and stamped the word celebrate on it. And set it aside for "building" my layers.
Using a piece of paper 5.5x11 I scored .5 from either edge and in the center at 5.5.
Here is a photo of what it looked like when I was finished.
I adhered each edge and squeezed them together to create a pocket.
Here is a close-up of the pocket.
I lined up the punch and punched one side using the 1 1/4. You can see I only punched a half circle.
Here is the final project. I created a quick card to put in the pocket.
Here is a close up of the project.
