You Are Truly Amazing Slim Line Pocket Card
Posted on January 12 2021
Hi - it's Lynnea! Need an idea for a quick and versatile Valentine's Day card? Look no further! I used a mix of LDRS Creative stamps and dies to make this adorable Slim Line Pocket Card!
I am head over heels loving the new Slim Line Pocket Dies! I love that you can make smaller cards that perfectly fit in an A2 envelope - even with elements that hang off the side of the card! Let's build this card from the bottom up - starting with the white on white background. Die cutting a white background is a great way to bring texture into a card without being too distracting. I die cut the Slim Line Basket Weave Pocket Die background from white cardstock and adhered it onto a 3" x 5.5" card base. Let's move on to the die cut elements! I reached for some of my go to scene building dies - Here Comes the Sun, In a Cloudy Sky, and the Rainbow Bits Die Set. I cut the clouds from white, the sun from yellow, and a colorful rainbow from scraps of colored cardstock. I can't get enough of all of the stitched details!
Such an adorable background needs an equally adorable image to go on top and LDRS has me covered! I grabbed the Up and Away Pocket Pals Stamp Set that was released last Spring and stamped the flying elephants and the heart balloon with Raven Hybrid Ink. I colored them with alcohol markers and die cut them with the coordinating Up and Away Dies and added the images to my card with foam tape.
