I thought I’d check out the Card Sharks challenge at My Scrapbook Nook. Wow – the cards for round one are truly impressive. The challenge was to focus on the pocket or envelope and have a hidden card inside. We also had to use black and ribbon.
Here’s what I came up with. First I cut about 1/3 off a Jenni Bowlin month card, added a back and stitchedaround to make a pocket. Then I stamped a butterfly in versatec ink , embossed clear and then misted with Maya Road ink. I dabbed the mist off to reveal the butterfly again. Then I added some ribbon, a Pink Paislee tag, a Maya Road sheer clock, misc button and a Sizzix diecut swirl.
To create the tag for inside I took another Jenni Bowlin calender card and cut it so the bottom portion would fit inside the pocket, but the top still matched up. I created a sentiment in Adobe PSE and aded to the card, then misted to match the pocket. I added an embossed pop dotted butterfly and some ricrac to cover the writing.
This is what it looks like with the card inside the pocket
