Good morning! This month we created a cute Card Holder and 4 cards using the Paisley Petals DSP and Four Frames stamp set. I’ve seen this “double-pocket card holder” all over the place, but I followed the video that Kimberly Van Diepen posted. We recycled the brown packing paper that comes with my Stampin’ Up orders to decorated the front of our card holders.
The packing paper comes in a long strip. I cut sections about the length of the Fun Flowers Sizzix Die, and we crumpled the paper all up to get lots of texture. Then we straightened the paper back out and folded it into about 4 layers to run through the Big Shot with the Fun Flowers die. We used the 3 large flowers and just threw away the small centers.
Next, we added some ink to each flower using a variety of stamps from Vintage Vogue and Charming. I just wanted some random ink on the flowers. The largest flowers are stamped with Early Espresso. The medium flowers are stamped with Crumb Cake. And the smallest flowers are stamped with Bravo Burgundy.
Finally, we punched a Bravo Burgundy medium flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch and secured all the layers with a Silver Brad. We added a couple pieces of Cardstock that had been embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots EF and a piece of Early Espresso Satin ribbon (now retired).
I’ll post the 4 matching cards over the next couple of days. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
