Today's post is all about no waste - create two pockets from one sheet of 12x12 and four pull-out portions of the pocket from one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11". Please read on for the how-to!
A neighbor and friend told me this week she and her husband are expecting her third child - happy times! See what New Jersey cold and snowed-in weather creates? hee!
My friend's congrats card started simply, then evolved into a neat but simple pocket card (click link for template) - it's simple, easy, and you get two pockets out of one sheet of 12x12 double-sided cardstock.
Finished pocket card measures 4-1/2" x 6". I used a size A6 envelope (4-3/4" x 6-1/2").
Copic marker colors were pulled using colors from one of October Afternoon's newest lines, Ducks in a Row. Lockhart Stamp Company's Ice Cream and Pickles was stamped onto a Nestabilities long rectangle die cut piece of white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copics, then matted with black cardstock. The last mat layer is white cardstock, cut with a Nestabilities long rectangle scallop die that was then run through a Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder (see pic below). I popped the black layer using foam dimensionals.
The interior pull-out portion of the card is a piece of white cardstock, measuring 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". The decorative cardstock header measures 4-1/4" x 1-1/4". Perfect pull-out size as you can get four of these from a sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock. No waste and no scraps baybee! The adorable Lockhart image was stamped (Adirondack Aqua - Ranger); sentiment is from A Muse. Happy times ahead!
