Serendipity SSCB#43 pt 2 – My Girl!

Celebrate Pocket cu 06373
A big congrats to Brenda the newest Featured Stamper!  I chose THIS card of hers to case. I kept the pocket w/ insert & birthday theme, but I used different images, different colors & I left off the cute kitty in her picture.

Celebrate Pocket 06374
For my project, I made a crossover pocket card. It’s actually only a pocket, as it doesn’t open, with an insert for the greeting. I had this green dp with flowers & glittered centers and I thought it would work well for the front of the pocket. I added a mottled orange dp and borders of the die cut Daisy Border. I used a portion of the Daisy Garden die for the faux belt across the front and added a glitter die cut buckle to finish the belt.

For the insert, I used a white panel I had die cut and cut the top off in order to add the Celebrate die cut on top. It was die cut once out of polka dot orange dp and 3 times out of heavy white. I attached the orange to one of the white cuts, stacked the other 2 white cuts together and glued them with the top of the insert in between. The cute little Daisy is new and I stamped, colored & fussy cut it. After attaching it, I stamped the Special Day greeting over it and the big Happy Birthday below it. A couple of orange die cut corners to the lower edge. These are the Copics I used on the flower.

If you’d like the instructions for the pocket, here are the measurements. (Click any pictures to make them larger.) After I cut the green flower print dp, I also cut an orange layer the same size then trimmed them both down to layer on the white card. Another orange piece of dp was added to the inside of the pocket & after these were attached, I added a strip of double sided tape across the lower edge & down the inside of the top right side of the pocket to permanently close it. The insert simply slips inside the pocket.

  1. Julie there are so many I things I love about this card I don’t even know where to begin! It’s the first time I’ve seen the new Daisy on a card and it’s so fun! (It’s in the What’s New section now). I love the little “belt” you made with the Daisy Garden Die and the lacy edge you made with the Daisy Border die! And I REALLY love the great orange and green colors – it just says SUMMER!

  2. Great little tutorial and fun card shape. The celebrate greeting is done so well and the flower is super cool. A wonderful and special card my friend. Hugz
