Spring Chick Double Pocket Card

Monday, March 15, 2010

Good Morning Everyone. I'm still in the spring mood, so todays card is in that theme.

The only thing different about the card is that it is a "Double Pocket Card" made out of one sheet of double sided patterned paper. The card is a standard size once made which measures 4.25"X5.5". I got the idea from another bloggers video on YouTube.

If you wish to watch the video it is HERE. The video was posted by Jessica Taylor at http://www.inkitupwithjessica.com/ .
It's a very cute card and would make a great all occassions card, just by the way that you embelish it. One note when folding the card, remember that you are viewing the video as a spectator, so the folds are backwards.

I have made it into a Spring card by using a stamp set from "The Stamping Studio". I love this set.
The chick was stamped first, than masked and the fence was stamped. I was of course colored with Copic Markers. The frillie parts were cut with a Martha Stewart "Double Loop Punch".

The card is quite simple to make, but take your time with the folding and get nice crisp folds.

Now here is the card front and the card with the tags showing.

"Flower Chick"

"Flower Chick w/Tags Showing"

The tags were hand cut to 2"X4" from Ivory cardstock. The mat for the tags were cut to 2 .25"X4.25" from Orange cardstock. The edges of the Ivory tags were done with a Palette Orangie ink pad. The colors use for the image were;

  • Chick; Y13,Y18,YR04
  • Flowers; R17,R20,R22,B01,B02,B05
  • Grass; YG17,G00
  • Fence; E09,E13,E35

After the image was colored, IK cut it out using my GlassMat and anXacto Knife. The image was adhered to the Orange cardstock and free hand cut.

Try this card you will love the results.
Let me know what you think of the card with your comments. They are appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
