A Stocking in My Pocket
Good morning everyone!
I've been crafting like a fiend, again, and have some new projects to show you today. (Only one for this post, though)
Any of you who frequent my blog know that I go through phases where I make a lot of one kind of thing! Well, this is no exception! My new obsession is pocket cards! I made my first one and now I'm on a roll!
Here is my first pocket card. I made a little shaped tag sticking out of the pocket. The shaped tag is made using this cute little bear in a stocking from Bugaboo Stamps. He's colored with Promarkers, I used a scrap of ribbon through his hat. My card layout uses the Sketch at Skipping Stones Designs. I cut out these cute christmas trees to embellish the upper right corner and then decorated them with my I-Rock tool. (My first time using this tool, and I love love love it!) The pocket in the bottom left is covered with a scrap of crackle look designer paper, and then I attached a sentiment from Sentiments 4 You, punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. The sentiment, pocket and christmas trees are attached with foam mounting tape, for dimension.
I used this teddy bear photo from Just Inspirational Challenges as inspiration to include a teddy bear.
