A Pocket Sketch Challenge

Maui Stamper CCMC267 Pocket CardIt’s been a long time since I’ve played with a sketch challenge.  I was wasting time online doing research the other day and ran across Create With Connie and Mary.  Seems as though I’m always pinning cards from their challenges, so I decided to jump in.  Here’s the sketch:

Create with Connie and Mary CCMC267 sketchPretty simple, wouldn’t you say?  And my concept came together quickly – UNTIL – I got to that embellishment on the top.  (There’s always an “until”, isn’t there?)  Lots of fussing and fiddling, but I finally made a decision.

Maui Stamper Sketch Challenge CCMC267Honestly, I think there are 5 or 6 stamp sets here.  I can tell you that the DSP is Epic Day This ‘n That, the card stock is Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Pear Pizazz, and the ribbon is Naturals Trim and Burlap.  I cut the top of the pocket and the top of the insert with the Adorning Accents edgelit, and I double cut one of the Chalk Talk framelits to create the shape behind the postage stamp.  I hauled out my sewing machine to stitch the pocket together.

The embellishment at the top really works and I am impressed that you sewed the sides of your pocket – wish I had thought to do that with my card. And as always, Anne – you made me chuckle.
