Slide Out Pocket Cards–Holiday and Baby Themes

slide_xmas

This is the card I made in my video tutorial (see previous post). Outside pocket was made using Real Red textured card stock, with Christmas Cocoa DSP on the front panel. Inside, the slide out portion was made using Real Red and Whisper White card stock, with the upper corners rounded by the Corner Rounder Punch.

Stamp is from Snow Buddies (a Level 2 Hostess set) that I embossed with black embossing powder, colored in with Aquapainter. The window on the front was made from 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch. The ribbon is Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon.

It’s hard to see in the photo, but I punched the insert with the Slit Punch to make it a gift card holder.

This version uses Urban Oasis DSP (retired) as the outer jacket. The inside is Kiwi Kiss layered with Whisper White card stock. Again, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the tops only. Stamp is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (Retired Hostess Set), embossed with Black embossing powder and colored in with Aquapainter. To finish it off, I tied some Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card.

Yet another version in a more girly color scheme. This would make a great baby shower card for a little girl, or simply change the stamp image to a cupcake and you have a fun birthday card! Card base is chocolate chip, layered with Sweet Always DSP in the polka dot pattern. I ran a strip of regal rose card stock through the crimper, attached it to the front with dimensionals and then tied some fabulous Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around the front.

Finally, this is the version I’ll be giving to my friend for her baby shower. Inside, I made a slit using the Slit Punch to hold a gift card. The outside is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Delicate Dots DSP (from last SAB). The green is Kiwi Kiss and the duck is from Goody Goody Gumdrops.

Video Tutorial For Slide Out Gift Card Holder

Here is a video demonstrating how to make a Slide Out Pocket Card. This particular one is a Christmas gift card holder but I also show examples of baby shower card versions.

P.S. Making a video is harder than I thought! I’m sorry the lighting isn’t great I’ll know better for next time. All dimensions will be listed at the bottom of this post in case you miss something in the video. Thanks for watching!

Autumn/Fall Scrapbook Layout

I think I made this page last year but never uploaded it. My daughter was only 2 months old on her first Halloween so we didn’t go trick or treating. She really wasn’t a fan of her chicken costume either! Since that season was very low key around our house, I decided to lump together Halloween and Thanksgiving, making one scrapbook page for both holidays.

The background is the retired Halloween DSP in pumpkin pie with some striping. I used the tree from Season of Friendship, stamped in chocolate chip with different color leaves, and trimmed it out. The pumpkins are from Year After Year, watercolored with pumpkin pie ink and trimmed out as well.

Across the top of the page, I used a strip of chocolate chip DSP and the letters were made using the Cuttlebug Alphabet (I don’t remember the name). At the bottom, I printed my journaling from the computer, matting it on chocolate chip card stock, and adding some Soft Subtles Buttons tied with Hemp Twine in the corner for embellishment.
