Welcome to the last official Thailand Achievers Blog Hop. We're not really ending though, because in October we kick off 12 months of ALASKA Achievers hops! :) Yep! That's the next trip that many of us earned (and a few are still trying to earn...we have until the last day of September).
The theme for this month is: Holiday Catalog Favorites. So follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of other participants in the list below) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects incorporating new stamp sets and products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.
Today I have a handsome "north woods" pocket card to share. The pocket is on the inside and can hold a gift card, cash, tickets, a private love note, etc...
To make things easier, I have a 20-minute how-to video for you to view that I recorded live on Facebook last week. (Just keep in mind that is was recorded live. That will explain why I am talking with a few during the recording.)
Here are those measurements again so you can just copy and paste and reproduce this card right away...
- Basic Black cardstock: 11" x 4-1/4" scored at 2-1/4" and 5-1/2"
- Pear Pizzazz cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4"
- Old Olive cardstock: scraps for die-cutting trees and leaves
- Copper Foil paper: scraps for punching out deer and label piece
- Whisper White cardstock: scraps for stamping and punching out label piece
- Merry Little Christmas designer paper (black & white plaid design): 4" x 3"...4" x 2"...4" x 1" (all from the same 4" x 6" piece)
- Old Olive 1/8" Sheer ribbon: ~ 18"
And here are a few more close-up photos.
By the way, it was a total coincidence that my nail polish matched! LOL I didn't plan that at all.
Thanks for checking out my blog today. Have fun on the hop. And remember to stamp your art out! :)
