Pocket Cards to Greeting Cards: Family Edition Card 2

Hello, again crafty friends! Today I am back to share the second card I made with the “Family” pocket cards from If you missed the first card, you can check that out HERE. Tomorrow I’ll be back to share the next one, but for now, let’s get started with this one…

Step 1:

Just like in our last card, if you’d like a thin white border around your card front like I have, trim 1/8″ off the top and bottom of a piece of A2 glitter paper. Since most of the glitter paper will be covered, I die cut a banner from the center to use on a later project. After that, secure the glitter paper to an A2 card base.

Step 2:

Trim 3/4″ off the bottom of the paisley printed card, so it is 4″x5.25″. If you’d like, die cut a banner from the center of this card to use on a later project, and secure this piece over the glitter paper.

Step 3:

Trim 3″ off the top of the Family definition card, so it is 3″x4″. If desired, you could use a die or add a decorative stitched border. (I cannot find the die I used, but this one is a great alternate option in the same size.)

Step 4:

Using left overs, secure three .75″ wide strips onto thin computer paper with a small amount of adhesive before running it through a sewing machine and adhering to your card base. (Remember to use a very small amount of adhesive sparingly to hold things in place for sewing. You do not want to clog your machine.)

Step 5:

Add the sentiment card to your card base with foam adhesive followed by several drops of matching champagne Pops of Color and set aside to dry.

Alrighty, don’t forget to save your left over trimmings, because we aren’t quite done using up scraps as you can see from the composite collection photo above. I really hope you’re enjoying this mini series. If you’d like a full list of all the supplies used, please visit my gallery post, and I hope to see you again tomorrow for our next card.

Until next time… stay crafty! – Laura Evangeline
