Hello and welcome to another Sketchy Saturday!
My apologies for posting late (sorry Carol) we had a spanner thrown in the works last night with a call to let us know that an ambulance had been called for my Mother in Law.Â She has had a bad cold and ended up with chest pains last night so everything was just dropped while we attended to her.
Diagonals?Â What am I supposed to do with that?Â So as I do I deliberated and deliberated and then …. I deliberated some more!
Then it dawned on me … pockets.
I have quite a bit of Designer Series Paper that I need to use over the next 2 months so I tried to think what paper I havent used for a while and I grabbed my Candy Lane Papers.Â You dont see these pack used so much and I think its really lovely – or maybe I just dont go to the right blogs!
Here is what I came up with …
I’ve modelled this card on the Diagonal Pocket card but I’ve just used it for the pockets on the front so only used 1/3 sheet of 12×12 for the front pockets instead of using the wholeÂ sheet as in the tutorial.Â I’ve also added a bit of elegance using the Eyelet Border Punch on a piece of Very Vanilla.
Now here’s the card showing the insert.
I couldnt go past doing my “Latte Stack” on the tag with my gorgeous “Share A Cup” stamp.
I’ve left the tag mainly blank so you can put a little note or even attach a gift card for your favourite Coffee Place like Gloria Jeans or The Coffee Club.
Here is the inside of the card for you to write a message to your friend
Now I’ve added the Eyelet Border egde again with some of the stripes from the Candy Lane Designer Series Paper pack for continuation from the front.
Now I could have put another tag in the top pocket but after grabbing my little Pun Fun Latte stamp I thought what better than to put in a sachet for a Latte.Â Its a nice way to say hello to a friend and give them a cuppa 🙂
I do hope you like what I made for this sketch and now all I have to do is to find someone to send it to!Â Maybe you??
