Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with these super simple super fast Christmas Pocket Cards! I also do some foiling without a laminator!
I am so excited to still be doing this series this year, definitely helped me to have my cards ready without having to scramble during the holidays. So join us each month and hopefully it will inspire you to work through them all year!
For the step by step process for creating the pockets check out the video HERE!
Hi Everyone! It’s Luci from “My Crazy Craft Life” with Center Box Pop Out or Pop Up Card! I am so happy with how this turned out! Be sure to check out the video for all the details, dimensions, and tips I learned along the way HERE! For this project I used The Greeting Farm “Hands Down” and Sunny Studio “Magical Mermaids” stamp sets. I stamped the images with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and I used Tsukineko Jet Black to stamp the glasses from the Hands Down set on to Acetate, and Copic colored all of the images. The cardstock was from my stash.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my final Scrapping For Less project for May 2019. I had so much fun making this, other than the video that I tried, and it stopped working half through.
How I made this fun Magic Color Slider Card… without the die…
Take an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet cardstock, score at 5.5″ on the short and 4.25″ on the long.
2. Cut away the top left panel as this will be used later for your slider.
3. If making your card portrait as I did, Cut .25″ off along the outside of the right panels.
4. With the remaining lower left panel score in .25″ and cut the top and bottom corners at an angle.
5. Decide if you want a Circle, Square, Rectangle or whatever hole for your window, I went with Rectangle using my stitched rectangle dies. I folded my panels so that the bottom left which is what would be the top panel would be cut with the die and ran it through my die cutter.
6. For me at this point I cut in .25 from each side on the top right so that it would say down easily.
7. I then folded the upper right down over the upper left, and folded the lower left over to cover the same, to put the panel that was upper right in between the two.
8. Using score tape on the little flap I closed it up by tucking it into the back panel. making a big pocket with a panel in the middle.
9. Cut a piece of acetate to be 5.25″ x 3.75″ and using a piece of score tape attach to the center top of the panel we had cut away in step 2 which I cut to the same measurements.
10. Stamp the image on the acetate using Staz-On ink in the same place it will be on the inner panel. For I stamped on the acetate, then positioned the piece I had already cut and colored in the same spot so they lined up.
11. Using pattern paper out of the “Believe” paper pack I used my stitched rectangle dies to make frames for the front of my card and panels for the slider part as well.
12. Using a tab die from a Lawn Fawn set I made a pull tab and attached with score tape to the top of the slider panel and attached some bakers twine to that for a pull string.
13. Putting the card together at this point was easy, I slid the panel with the pattern paper and colored image behind the white panel and the acetate panel in front. It is all hidden by the frames on the front of the card. After some stamp surgery I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and attached it to the top of the frame to complete my card.
Hello Everyone! Christine from Pattercrafts here today with a fun interactive card featuring the Newton’s Nook “Made from Scratch” stamp set. There are so many great sentiments in this stamp set and I thought making a interactive card with the Peek a Boo die from MFT stamps was a great way to include almost all of them on one card!
I stamped out all the images from the set, colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut them. For the front card panel, I used Memento Ink in the colors Summer Sky and Cantaloupe to do a little ink smooshing to add a soft background for my images. I stamped out each of the four smaller sentiments around the wheel and attached the front panel and wheel piece together with a brad. I put the entire piece on a card base with foam tape in the corners. I arranged all the images on the front except the whisk because I thought it was perfect to go along side the sentiment on the inside of the card “Whisking you a Happy Birthday”.
I was first introduced to papercrafting in 2009 when I was invited to attend a scrapbooking party. I started making cards in 2012 and I never looked back. When I am not at my 9-5 or at my craft desk, you’ll find me enjoying a good book, discovering the outdoors or enjoying a coffee break with a friend or family member. [READ MY BLOG]
We at Scrapping for Less are so glad that LeeAnn has joined our team. She is a fellow Floridian and says this about herself.
My name is LeeAnn McKinney, I am wife, mom, mom in law and mimi. I spend most of my days/night in my craft room, online and watching Netflix, Acorn or NASCAR. I started crafting back in the 90’s, took a break after mom passed away and found my crafty side again when my grandson was on the way. I have been a daily crafter since 2014, and on design teams since 2015.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my first project as a member of the Scrapping For Less design team. Let me say this is going to be a fun ride.
So, today I am highlighting the “Hay There” stamp set from Lawn Fawn, available in the Scrapping For Less Store. I also used the “Down on the Farm” 6x6 paper pad and mini icons from Doodlebug. I am always amazed how well Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug work together.
So, now that you know what I used, how about showing you what I made.
After stamping and coloring the cute animals I decided this had to be a box card, so that everything would fit and have the ability to be seen.
I used the following Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers for coloring: Cow Spots, and all animal hooves- True Black Cow face- FS5 Cow horns IG5 Goat- IG3, IG6 Sheep- IG2, IG6 Pig- PP3, PP6 Horse- GB1, GB5, EB3, EB4, TN4 Fence- EB5, TN3
Once my coloring was complete I cut the images and set to making my box card.
The box card base is 11.5″ wide and 5.5″ tall. each section is 2.75″ wide. The base is scored up at 2.75″ to create 3 flaps that will fold down. The 4th side was left tall to create the back side when standing. I cut three 2.5″ x 2.5″ and used my Corner Chomper to round the edges. I used double stick tape to adhere the panels. The back panel is 2.5″ x 3.5″ so that it will cover the panel down past where my farm critters are. The panels my critters are on 3.5″ wide and 3″ tall. I added a .5″ panel of the same wildflower field pattern paper to each panel to simulate the critters standing out in the pasture. On the left panel is a mud pit, Apple Tree and apple from the Mini Icon Set, and the Pig from the stamp set that I colored. The front panel is a windmill, flowers and truck from the Mini Icon Set. On the right side is a bail of hay, apple tree and apple from the Mini Icon Set and Cow from the stamp set. The photo image on the back panel is from an icon sheet in the 6″x6″ paper pad.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Please stop by the Scrapping For Less website and see the items I have highlighted as well as the other awesome items available.
