Papertake Weekly and Cute Card Thursday


The challenge at the PTW was to create a matching set while at the Cute Card Thursday the theme was Dance/Music. I made a paper pocket and a mini card to go with it for these two challenges. I hope to be using these for a future blog handy I will be hosting soon.
Materials:
Maggie - Sugar Nellie Stamp (swap image)
Floral Retro Paper - Papermania
Faber Castell water colour
Cappucino Floral
Pink Gems
Prima mini flowers
Ice Blue Glitz it!
Brown ink
How to:
  1. Trim the brown cardstock to 28 by 15 cm. Score at 9cm, 10cm, 19cm, 20cm to create the folds for the pocket.
  2. Cut the patterned paper to measure 8.5 by 14.5cm. Sand, distress and sand the edges once more in order to blend the ink with the paper.
  3. Stamp the image and colour in, putting some blue glitter to finish off. Ink the edges and cut a bigger circle (than the image) using a compass and scalloped scissors to matt the image.
  4. Embellish using prima flowers and pink gems.

I used cut offs to make the mini card, adding a piece of brown velvet ribbon. I hope you like it and would love to hear what you think!
