Hope Faux Stitched Pocket Card

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a  pocket card featuring the Way with Words die Hope.

It's a bit of a different idea for a card design but very simple to do.  Fold over a rectangle of white cardstock to create a rectangle that is approximately 4 x 6".  Cut a corner off the front half of this folded paper as shown and adhere it to the back only along the bottom and right edge, creating a pocket.  Cover the front of the cardstock with a piece of patterned paper and decorate as desired.  I like the look of stitching, but rather than getting my sewing machine out, I cheated.  I used a paper piercer and poked holes at regular intervals, and then joined those holes together with a fine black pen.

I also like texture so I added some clear butterflies to the background with the Quietfire Design butterfly kaleidoscope stencil and clear gesso.  Clear gesso is like a clear paint or primer.  This gives a subtle but very pretty effect.

Adhere your Hope word die cut to the middle of the card, and then tuck some tags into the pocket.  I used shipping tags from the stationary store as a base.  Decorate these tags with patterned paper, die cuts, stamped sentiments, handwritten messages, whatever you like.  

  Thanks for stopping by, Connie
