Ok, now that I'm off my soapbox, would you like to see the pocket card I made for this week's MIM challenge by Heather Nichols?
I just can't seem to make a pocket card that doesn't contain a gift card. I love the simple design of Heather's card and used the same dimensions and orientation as she, but added the gift card inside. I marked the corners of the card and made diagonal cuts with a craft knife across those corners to hold the gift card in place.
I had lots of fun combining stamp sets to create the sentiment I was looking for. I hope you get the pun!
The striped Washi tape is custom made using the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set with Hibiscus Burst Ink. I am fascinated with the phenomenon of Washi tape, but just can't bring myself to start another "micro-addiction", so I have decided to ride out the trend making my own-small batch style. I was first introduced to this idea by Nichole Heady in this MIM last October. I will be sharing this technique with my stamp club at our June meeting.
I have added a complete list of supplies at the bottom of the post. I've missed being around most of the month and look forward to catching up with you!
