Pocket Cards to Greeting Cards: Family Edition Card 3

Hello, again crafty friends! I am back to share the third card in my Pocket Cards to Greeting Cards mini series featuring the “Family” pocket card set from Instructions for the first card can be found HERE and the second card can be found HERE. Today’s card is pretty simple, so let’s get started…

Step 1:

Just as I did with the first two cards, I trimmed 1/8″ off the top and bottom of a piece of A2 glitter paper, and I die cut a banner from the center where it would be covered to use on a later project. I then adhered the glitter paper to an A2 card base.

Step 2:

Trim 2″ off the maroon floral printed card, so you are left with a 4″x4″ square. Trim 1.25″ from the pink butterfly printed card, so you are left with a 2.75″x4″ strip.

Step 3:

Lightly tack the pink strip on top of the maroon floral piece to hold it in place and add decorative stitching. (If you don’t want to sew, you can go ahead and secure it firmly.) Once these two layers are attached to one another, cut it in half down the center of the pink strip and secure each half to the glitter paper.

Step 4:

Trim the orange “Family is Forever” quote card down to your desired size. Measuring from the edge of the white letters, I left about 1/8″ around each side. Secure this to the front of your card with foam tape.

Step 5:

For the finishing touch, add several drops of matching silver Pops of Color and set aside to dry.

***EDITED TO ADD: It looks like the silver Pops of Color are FREE right now. Hurry and grab yours over on the coupons page HERE.

Okie dokie, don’t forget to save the trimmings we’ve made, because we will be using some in our next card. I hope you’ve enjoyed the cards we’ve made so far in 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 the next card.

Until next time… stay crafty! – Laura Evangeline
