Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. Today is the last day of Technique Week at my blog and I’m finishing off with a Lined Alphabet pocket card. I used the Lined Alphabet Bundle together with Serene Garden and Sunshine Sayings for a card that will send a special message to someone special.

Fancy fold cards are not always a giant undertaking but they can be intimidating. Here is how I approach each project; the finished card will fit into a standard envelope, so…… it can’t be too big a project for me to tackle. Putting it into perspective is a big help. Plus, Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, step by step and loads of photos.
I used the new Lined Alphabet stamps and matching dies to spell “p-r-a-y-e-r-s” stamped in purple. I’m so excited to be using the new purples offered by Stampin’ Up!, they are beautiful! To accent what would otherwise be a very simple card with letters, these lovely florals from Serene Garden were just right. The accompanying sentiments are stamped from Sunshine Sayings stamp set, tying it all together into one single message.
Tips for this project
This Lined Alphabet Pocket Card design is perfect when I want to send a card that will be more than a card. Extremely sturdy and it really makes a statement.
The floral images are colored with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The pink and yellow tones are an easy match to the Highland Heather card stock.
Using Lined Alphabet stamp set, the letters are stamped onto white card stock with Gorgeous Grape, so the purple color will really jump out from the other images. Each letter was then die cut with Layering Alphabet Edgelits dies.
The pocket area has a large area for a nice conversational sentiment. There is a pull tab on top to help the pocket area come away from the base and an easy thumb rest from a Gold Faceted Gem.
