Pocket Card

I found this neat pocket template in the Dec/Jan issue of the Stampers Sampler magazine. The template can be found Here All stamps used are from Rubbernecker Stamp co. Click on the title to check out their awesome stamps and accessories. The hinge is Tim Holtz grungeboard which you can probably tell is a new fascination of mine right now. I am also loving Tim Holtz distress inks, they lend themselves to collage work so well. The sentiment is embossed in black EP. Images were all inked up with VersaFine Vintage Sepia and then rock n rolled in Onyx Black. The scrolls on either side of the column and the one under the brad are stickers by American Traditional Designs. The fibers are tied through a hook and eye rescued from my sewing stash. The eye is on the bottom portion of the pocket and secured with 2 brads. The hook is glued under a portion of the decorative brad and I just tied a bow after looping it through the hook.

  1. I love this card. Love the collage look. I too am a fan of grungeboard. I'll be back for more inspiration.

  2. Shelly, you're a true artist. It's not just making great cards, but rather it's about reflecting your artistic abilities in cards!
    You are truly talented. Only so few are so gifted. Thanks for sharing all your treasures! They're all wonderful. Anne Ryan
