Share What You Love Envelope Pocket Cards
Today, I'm sharing a unique card that is perfect for giving a little something extra with your well wishes. The foundation of the card is created with two envelopes that are adhered together then covered with a decorative card front. Inside, the envelopes become pockets to hold messages, gift cards, photos, tickets and more! I used items from the Share What You Love Gotta Have It All Bundle to make the projects. The papers in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack are so beautiful that I couldn't stop making different versions of this card! You won't be able to stop either, once you see how easily it comes together!
Front Cover Basics—The front cover of this card is a 9" x 5-7/8" piece of cardstock, scored at 4-1/2" along the 9" side. Here, the base was created in returning color Mint Macaron. I embossed a 4-1/4" x 5-5/8" piece of Mint Macaron with the Simple Stripes Texture Impressions Folder, then mounted it onto the front with Tear & Tape Adhesive for a secure hold.
Focal Point Background—I created a background for the sentiment by layering a coordinating 3" x 4" piece of Share What You Love DSP onto a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" mat of Basic Black. I wrapped a 24" piece of the Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon around the card front, then popped this layer over the top with Dimensionals, letting the ribbon move freely. You'll tie up the ribbon after adding your goodies to the inside.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Love What You Do sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White, then punched it with the 2-1/4" Circle Punch. It's layered onto a Dazzling Diamonds scallop circle, die-cut with the Layering Circles Framelits. Both of the circles are popped up with Dimensionals. Since this card is larger than the standard size card, it doesn't matter how much it's popped up. It's not meant to have an envelope, since it's created with envelopes!
Inside Envelopes—The inside is created by adhering the flap of the left envelope to the back of the envelope on the right. The flap on the right envelope is folded back and adhered on the backside of the envelope. This allows both envelopes to become large pockets that open to the right. You can add a standard size 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" message on a cardstock piece with a little pull tab, tuck a gift card inside one or both pockets, or even add a traditional card! There are lots of possibilities of things you could include, making this project very versatile for all sorts of occasions!
The envelopes are adhered to the card cover with Tear & Tape Adhesive. I left the inside blank here, but you could easily add some coordinating cardstock or DSP to liven it up a bit!
Two Cool—After I completed one envelope pocket card, I decided to try out the other colors from the Share What You Love suite! Here's one in new Grapefruit Grove with pearlized accents.
Three Cool—This one features the So Saffron pearlized DSP pattern.
Four Cool—I featured Old Olive with the dainty floral design on this one, along with the Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
Five Cool—Rich Razzleberry is the base of this card, along with the pearlized Share What You Love floral and Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon.
Six Cool—Tranquil Tide cardstock and the coordinating pearlized floral is highlighted on this card, along with Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon.
Seven Cool—Last, but not least, Blackberry Bliss makes a showing with the dotted DSP and more Pear Shimmer Ribbon.
