It’s that time again! Pocket Cards are the theme this time. So I decided to do a Cris Cross Card. I haven’t done one of these cards in a long time. You need 2 pieces of 4 1/4″ x 11 pieces of Thick Whisper White Cardstock, score each one at 5 1/2″. You will cut each piece from the fold down to the outer corner, so you will cut one piece on the left side, the other on the right side. Then add snail in the center of one of them and over lap one over the other. Make sense?
You can play along too! Check out all the other entries HERE!
I used one of the end pieces that I cut off and took 1/4″ off and used it as my pattern and cut the Vellum Trees. I used snail to adhere to each of the triangle flaps, but I only put the snail on the trees. You can do it! I did, that way the adhesive doesn’t show. Then glue each flap down at the BOTTOM only. This creates the pocket.
My insert is 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″. I used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on the two top corners. Added my sentiment and left the rest blank so you can sign it and write a message. I put the insert in the card and stamped in the center.
I have made several Shaker Cards in the past couple of weeks and given all of them away. I will be sharing them this week a few at a time.
Here is a quick tutorial. Instead of using dimensionals I used a layer of Fun Foam (2mm). Thank you to Erica Cerwin for this great idea. I found that the fun foam gets bigger when you put it through the Big Shot, which is why the fun foam layer is a 1/4″ smaller that the top layer. You can use just about any shape to make your shaker card. I have been stuck on the leaflets Framelits. Boy have I got my monies worth on these Framelits. I stamped all of my leaves on Whisper White cardstock with Early Espresso Ink. The Into the Woods Designer Paper is cut at: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered to the top layer BEFORE you die cut the leaf.
The Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie strips of leaves and pumpkins are from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies. You just need a strip that is 5/8″ wide and how ever long you want. They each have 3 leaves or pumpkins on the die and I ran each one through twice so I would have a total of 6 leaves and 6 pumpkins on each strip. Make sense?
I love layering all the Sequins, Ribbon, and leaves. I used glue dots to adhere each layer together. I am channeling my inner Kimberly Van Diepen. What does that mean? I love how Kimberly (she is also a Demonstrator) layers all of her projects and have admired her for a long time. I’m not good layering, but I’m learning.
The stamp set I used was only available to Demonstrators a while back. Since this card is for one of my Team Members I thought it would be perfect for this card.
