Heartfelt Creations - Envelope Pocket Card. is everyone?

I'm just popping in to share a little project I made for the Heartfelt Creations Blog this week. You can check all the Design Team cards here too.  If you want individual blogs check under the DT Tab at the top of my page.

click on the picture to see it a little clearer.

Here's how:

5-inch square.

HC Products:              HCPC 3388 Spring Cardinals PreCut Set
                                    HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
                                    HCD 701 Posy Patch Die
                                    HCD 702 Butterfly Border Die

Other Products:         Pink Paislee – Butterfly Garden dsp. Green Coredinations Card. X-Press It Blending Card – White.   2 white envelopes. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Copic Markers. Clear gems. Foam Mounting Tape, Dries Clear Adhesive Zip Dry glue. ScorPal. Fiskars – something old something new corner punch.


1.     Trim the green card to 5 inches 12 inches and score at 5 and 10 inches.
2.     Trim another piece of the green card to 3.25 inches square.
3.     From the dsp cut two pieces one 4- 7/8” square and the second at 4 -7/8 x 1-3/4 inches. Use these pieces to layer the front and flap.
4.     Die cut the Corner flourish from white card and add it to the front of the card flap.
5.     Seal the two envelopes before trimming the tops to give a 4-½ inch pocket.  Add a line of Zip dry to join the envelopes, leaving the top open.
6.     Do the same again to adhere the joined envelopes to the card back. Once more to join the envelopes to the card front.
7.     Stamp the image to X-Press It Blending card and colour with Copic markers.  Trim to 3-1/8 inches square and using the punch, punch opposite corners.  Layer this to the 3” square green card.
8.     Stamp 4 posy petals to match the card front and using the matching dies cut out. Colour with Copics .
9.     Shape the petals before adding them to the card front using Dries Clear adhesive.  Add a clear gem to the centre of each.
10  To the bottom of the completed image 3-inch square add a strip of foam mounting tape.  Position this  over the card front, so the top tab can sit just under the square to secure.
11  Add two rows of clear gems to complete.

Thanks for taking the time............Have a great week end!
