Tidings of Joy Pocket Card
Cut white cardstock to 7 1/2 x 5 1/2", score and fold at 1/2" on short side to create card base panel. Using from the HCD1-7416 Noel Decorative Die, diecut two of the die outline from white Deluxe Flower Shaping cardstock. Score about a 1/2" down from the top of each one and attach together at the top section. This creates the card base stand onto which the rest of card will be attached. Next, cut a piece of paper from the Joyous Noel Collection (sheet 6A) to 5 1/2" x 7" size and another small strip to 1/2" x 5 1/2". Attach these pieces onto the coordinating white panel. Sponge the edges with Sky Blue and French Ultramarine ink and attach onto card base stand. Using from the HCD1-7416 Noel Decorative Die, diecut decorative angel die from Deluxe Flower Shaping cardstock and also from Luxe Gold cardstock. Lightly sponge the white decorative diecut with Sky Blue, French Ultramarine, and Vivid Chartreuse. Ink the gold decorative diecut with Encore gold ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Dab Dries clear glue over the embossed gold and sprinkle with Mustard glitter. Off set the white decorative diecut onto the gold and attach onto card, creating a pocket with the left side closed and right side open. Cut the ‘Tidings’ sentiment from paper collection and sponge the words with Vivid Chartreuse and the edges with Sky Blue ink. Cut a slightly wider piece of gold cardstock to match. Use the same gold embossing and glittering technique on the edges of the gold cardstock. Layer the sentiment onto the gold cardstock and attach onto top right corner of card as shown, trimming off excess.
Create a white folded card base of 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 " size. Stamp the Joyous Noel Background in Versacolor White ink onto vellum and heat emboss with Aged Ivory embossing powder. Cut the vellum to match the size of folded card. Add color highlight of Sky Blue and French Ultramarine on the card base area where the ‘Angels’ text will be placed.
