Today I am sharing with you a very easy & simple yet super fun pocket card design. Both cards feature the amazing Timeless Tulips stamp set.
The pocket mechanism on these cards is created with a piece of DSP and is a really great way to feature the gorgeous papers.
I've also created a video tutorial so you can see how the cards have been made, I also go through measurements in the video for your convenience.
These cards are so simple to make and can be created in any colour, with any type of paper and decorated however you like, so the world is your oyster! They are also something different for the recipient.
Phew! What a week it has been in the world with so much angst and uncertainty.
It is times like this that I am so happy to have crafting as my hobby, the thought of being in lock-down at home actually doesn't seem so bad if you have something to keep you busy and sane!
Crafting and creating has been known as a form of therapy for various different uses, and it's wonderful that with the internet we can also continue to connect and share what we love in a virtual manner. I hope that you are all taking care of yourselves and your loved ones.
The Timeless Tulips stamp set is such a joy to stamp with and creates the most beautiful images. I have been working with this set to create a bunch of tulips. This time I kept the card sentiment free, its so nice as it is and that way it can be used for any occasion.

Lately I have been working on a playlist on my YouTube channel to help demonstrate different ways of using printed paper in cardmaking.
It's been fun to come up with different card layouts and creative uses for printed paper - lets be honest, many of us have stacks of printed paper because its just so pretty! So its good to make sure we are breaking open the pack and actually using the gorgeous papers.
The card I am sharing with you today features one way to use your printed paper, Paper Peicing! This technique is an oldie but a goodie!
I have stamped the poppy image and some leaves from the Painted Poppies stamp set onto some of the Perennial Essence DSP, then I have fussy cut the images and layered onto the card to create a floral garland.
I'm loving the clean and simple look with the white background and just allowing the flowers to sing.
I hope you can give this technique a try, and if you'd like to purchase any of the items I have used you can do so at my online store HERE
