Did You Know...I'm Thinking of You!

sc284 blk

Yes, I am!
I trust where ever you are today
you're experiencing beautiful weather
(Ohioans... don't bother reading that line!)
and good health!
Thanks to ALL my readers who stop by each day!!

I did this card for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. The sketch wasn't meant as a pocket card, but that's the first thing that popped into my pea brain when I saw it! LOL

sc284 I used Our Daily Bread designs From Me to You, God Loves You and Fleur de Lis Borders. The Fuchsias are colored with Copics with Sakura white gel pen accents. I sponged the oval while IN the die with Ranger Distress Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire inks. It's all one piece! I did the "out of the box" or "nestie" in this case, using my craft knife to do the cut-out work.

Today on StampTV, Gina showed how to do Recessed Diamond Background, so I gave it a whirl! Fun and makes for an interesting background!

sc284 pocket I only taped the edges of the piece the pocket slides behind. The scored layer has foam mounting tape only at the sides and bottom. I used Spellbinders Lotus to make the little pull tab.

sc284 side And...I used the little pieces that popped out of the Lotus medallion for the faux brads on the side! I just used 2 per brad gluing them with a 2-way glue pen.
The punched border is by
EK Success and that yummy paper is Basic Grey Kioshi.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Thanks again for stopping!!

I love everything about your pocket card, Dawn...from the recessed diamond pattern, to the delicate looking "handle," to the faux brads, and as always, your stunning colouring.
