Thirteen, do you remember turning 13? It's the nebulous stage between little girl and woman. Today's Pocketful of Sunshine Birthday Card is for my niece, Tori, who turns 13 this month. The Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set is a fun choice for that in between stage. It's cute, it's playful and it's just a little bit grown up.
Who doesn't love Polka Dots and checks? I added a splash of checks by only inking a small portion of my Buffalo Check background stamp. The polka dots were introduced with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
For texture, I heat embossed in White my stitched pocket stamps from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set. Then, I embossed the whole pocket with the Subtle Embossing Folder to make it look like fabric.
Every 13 year old girl needs a little bling, so I added Silver Pool Party Baker's Twine and a sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins.
Cutting the pocket with the Pocket Framelit dies creates a nifty pocket for inserting a little cash or gift. The fold over tabs make a perfect pocket.
I borrowed the bright and cheerful color combination of aqua, red and silver from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. I used Coastal Cabana and Real Red Ink and added a splash of silver with my silver pool party baker's twine.
Add a little sunshine to someone's life. Make a card with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamps.
Have a fabulous day,
