Today's challenge is to "bind two pieces of something together to make a card." As soon as I read that I started to brainstorm. Most ideas were not "card worthy" but then I remembered a trend about 4-5 years ago (very popular with Close to My Heart, I think) where you made a pocket card by "binding" the edges of the card with eyelets. So, I took that idea and ran with it!
Here is another view of the pocket. I love the frosted plastic!
The card pocket is Bazzill and DCWV cardstock, and I think the striped paper is Paper Loft, but I'm not positive. It came in my LSS club kit for June. The card pocket is 6x6 inches. I made my card from Bazzill and Graphic 45 paper. Graphic 45 is my FAVORITE paper EVER. The card is smaller than the base, so that it can slide in and out of the pocket.
The back of the card is plain cardstock so that a message can be written on it.
I used a SU stamp for the greeting and then attached a ribbon "tag" to make it easy to pull the card out of the pocket. The flowers are out of my bin so no clue who makes them. The brad is K&Company and has been in my stash for a long time.
Now, for some more cards from the MacMae July Card Kit. These are all VERY simple cards. I just used what was in the kit, plus some stamps and ink, and some punches. I tried very hard not to dig into my hoard for these! All the cards use the Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper.
The sentiment for the card below was printed off the computer. I think I saw it in a catalog and just recreated it with my fonts. The card is gray, but here it seems sort of purplish.
This last card also has a computer generated sentiment. I am not sure where I saw this one, but I liked it so recreated it with fonts.
