Hi Stamping Friends!
I hope that all of my American stamping friends had an amazing and safe 4th of July week! Mine was filled with lots of lake fun and plenty of sunshine, just like today's project!
I recently received this card as a swap from my friend Kim Vogel. It's a "cool" card with a dazzling pocket!

Kim's Dazzle Me Pocketful of Sunshine Card
Kim's card definitely has the "cool" factor with a pair of shades AND a handy front pocket that holds a little "cool" cash!
Background Basics—The background begin with a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" Powder Pink pattern from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Pack. It's mounted to a 3-3/4" x 5" mat in Smoky Slate, then adhered to a Whisper White card base. She also adhered part of a Delicate White Doily to the front of the card, positioning it under where the pocket would eventually be added.
Pretty Pocket—Kim stamped the Pocketful of Sunshine pocket in Archival Black Ink onto Powder Pink card stock, then die-cut it with the Pocket Framelits. Next, she stamped the "for you" in black onto a 1" square of Pool Party card stock and adhered it behind the pocket so that it was peeking out, like the tag on a jeans pocket. Cute! She made it a fun & functional pocket by popping up three sides of the pocket with Foam Strips. It's the perfect size for holding cash or a gift card!
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Pocketful of Sunshine and Pocket Framelits together as a Bundle to shave 10% off the cost of purchasing them separately.
Finishing Touches—Kim stamped the sunglasses in Archival Black Ink onto Pool Party and die-cutting them with the Pocket Framelits. They are popped up with Dimensionals. TIP: You'll definitely want to use the Archival Black Ink for the shades to achieve a nice, solid and opaque image. To finish the card with a little dazzle, she brushed on some cool Wink of Stella Clear over the stitching on the pocket. Awesomeness!
