Hello! Nichol here today with a Designer Series Gift Card Pocket Card featuring the Page Huggers Stamp Set and the coordinating Page Hugger Dies. These critters and dies are amazing because the paws die cut so that these sweet images can "hold on" to whatever you tuck them behind or in to! Such a great idea and makes for creating some super fun card designs! I dressed up the bear with the graduation cap, glasses, and diploma from the Page Huggers Stamp Set for this graduation-themed card.
I stamped the bear, graduation cap, glasses, diploma, stack of book, pencils, and apple from the Page Huggers Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using black ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Page Huggers dies, added Glossy Accents to the glasses on the bear and set the image aside to dry.
For the pocket background, I die cut 2 frames from smooth white cardstock and one frame from black cardstock using the Dotted Details Frame Die. From one of the inside solid white rectangles I used the notched pocket die from the Dotted Details collection to make a pocket.
On the background rectangle, I applied Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through a Tim Holtz Rays Stencil and then blended Squeezed Lemonade over the top. I applied Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to the pocket as well.
On the front pocket I stamped the "amazing" greeting from the Words Defined Stamp Set using black Ink. I stamped "congratulations" from the Labeled Messages Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using black Ink and cut out the greeting leaving a thin, white border.
The pocket was adhered over the background by applying adhesive to the sides and bottom. The "congratulations" greeting was adhered above the word "amazing" and the books, pencils and apple were adhere below the greetings as shown.
The bear was tucked behind the front edge of the pocket, the cap glued to his head and the diploma tucked under one of his paws.
I adhered the pocket rectangle to a top fold card base and then glued the Dotted Detail frames around the center panel one on top of another, finishing with the black frame.
