February Card Sketch challenge samples
STANDARD CARD SIZE SKETCH: This sketch works great with small images like small flowers, Big Pieces, Very Punny, A Little Love, Delight in Life, Love Matters, Riveting, Seeing Spots, Circle of Friendship, etc..
The card sketch is for a reverse pocket card closure. It may sound confusing but it is soooo simple. You make a normal pocket card by cutting your paper 4 ¼ x 11. Score this at 5 ½ and 10 ¾ . Fold on score lines to make a pocket card with a folded over flap. This is where you get to be creative and embellish your card with ribbons, stamped images, etc. Now to make the reverse closure. You just stamp an image that will fit in one of our 1 ¼ inch punches or the small tag punch. Then punch this out. Make a mat for this image using the larger coordinating punch. Now you will take a stampin' dimensional and stick this to the back of the top half of the punched out image. Stick it to the back part of the pocket card so that it forms a closure to keep the card folded over and closed. See, so easy, and very clever.
