I saw a post at My Digital Studio where Janet Wakeland had created cards using one of the Pocket Card Digital Downloads and it got me thinking about creating a hybrid card of my own.
I found my This Makes Me Happy Pocket Card digital download, printed out two of the A4 pages and cut them up. I took the Love, Love, Love pocket and trimmed it down so that I could use it as the focal image on my card.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder but only the left hand side. I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Pool Party card. I embossed Pool Party card using the Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it to the right hand side of the Whisper White card. I embossed Summer Starfruit card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, tied Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon in a knot around the embossed card and attached it to the card front using dimensionals under the left hand side only. I added a mat of Calypso Coral to the pocket card and attached it over both the Summer Starfruit and Pool Party card using dimensionals under the right hand side.
To decorate the inside, I cut down another Pocket Card and added a strip of Calypso Coral Card to the top edge. This piece is attached to Whisper White card and then to the inside of the Pool Party card.
I think it turned out really well. I will be checking out some of my other digital downloads to see which ones can be turned into the focal image on more cards.
Bye for now,
