Here it is. Almost Mother’s Day. Have you purchased a card yet? No? How about making one? This one is so easy, you DO have time to put it together by Sunday.
What you’ll need:
- Darice Mini Gold Brads
- Martha Stewart Blue Pansy Stickers
- Core’dinations All In The Family Cardstock- Indigos
- Core’dinations Jillibean Soup Cardstock Collection
- Gold paint pen or permanent marker
- Tape runner or other adhesive
- Sand-it Gadgit or sand paper
- Dry cloth or tack cloth
Cut the light blue flowered cardstock to 4 3/4 inches by 6 3/4 inches. Sand and brush off with tack cloth. Set aside.
Cut a piece of spare/scrap cardstock to 4 1/4 inches by 4 inches. Fold in half down the middle and cut part of the cardstock off from the center out to create a template for the pocket.
Cut a pocket out of the indigo blue cardstock.
Draw “stitches” around the pocket with the gold marker. You may wish to use a ruler to help make the stitches straight.
Crumple the pocket, smooth it out and sand.
Crumple the paper a second time making creases and folds in different areas of the paper. Sand and wipe off with tack cloth.
Adhere the pocket to the blue floral paper, pierce a hole in the three corners with an awl and insert the brads.
Adhere the floral paper to the card blank.
Carefully cut apart the blue pansy stickers and layer them around the top edge of the pocket.
Stamp or write the sentiment inside. I chose to write “A pocket full of posies”.
There are enough supplies with 1 sheet of each color paper and 1 sheet of the stickers to make three cards. Save yourself time and make a few to have on hand when needed.
