Today's Sending Sunshine Pocket Card is a fun way to send a handmade card with a little something, something tucked inside. Send a gift card for graduation or just because. Or maybe you would rather tuck a little cash or a treat in your card for a birthday. Whatever the occasion, send a little sunshine and a little something extra with today's Sending Sunshine Pocket Card.
I had planned to make a video tutorial for today's card, but time did not permit. The front scene was quick and easy to stamp with the Sending Sunshine stamp set by Stampin' Up!. I used a combination of Balmy Blue and Seaside Spray to stamp the water. Then using my Blending Brush, I brushed on a Balmy Blue Sky, then stamped a few random clouds. The sand was brushed on with Sahara Sand ink, then I stamped the specks using the same ink. The rising sun was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and the greenery was stamped with Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped the sentiment with Pacific Point ink and trimmed to make 3 pieces.
The paper is from the outgoing Free Berry Blessings Paper from January-February 2021 Sale-a-bration. In another two days this beautiful paper will be gone.
How to Make the Pocket insert
Cut a 11" by 4-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue Card Stock. Score at 2-3/4", 5-1/2" and 8-1/4". Stamp "Sending Sunshine Your Way" using Pacific Point Ink. Cut two Sweetly Stitched scalloped rectangles for the center panel. Then cut two pieces of 2-3/4" x 1-5/8" Berry Delightful Paper (blueberries) to place over scalloped rectangles. Slice a corner off the end panel.
For the last step, adhere the left panel to the left side of the card as shown. Fold score lines. Add a thin line of glue on 3 the sides and bottom of the pocket. Fold over the back of the card for perfect placement. Tuck in your surprise and you are done with your card!
