Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today to show you how to create a pretty Lace Pocket card that will hold either a gift card or money. This pocket was embellished with a small branch of Susan’s Garden Dogwoods. Here is how the pocket was created for the front of the card.
This lace pocket will fit on the front of a 6-inch square card.
- Die cut the ModaScrap Lace Pocket from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
- Cut a 6 inch sqaure of Rosebud Soft Finish Cardstock. This piece will fit behind the Lace Pocket when the tabs are folded under.
3. Die cut the larger Romantic Corner from white cardstock. This will just be a template and you can use it on another project.
4. Place the Rosebud SFC square behind the die cut pocket, being sure it is even with the score lines along the tabs. Fold the tabs to the back to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
5. Using low tack removable tape, tape the white die cut Romantic Corner onto the square, oriented as shown. (Tape only the top part). This paper template is going to indicate the precise position needed for die cutting, as explained in the next steps, so take care that it is centered as shown in the photo above step 3.
6. Remove the Rosebud cardstock with the Romantic Corner attached.
7. Lift the taped Corner up from the bottom and place the Lace Corner die on the card stock under the die cut to match it exactly. Tape the edges so it doesn’t move.
8. Remove the Lace Pocket die cut piece and replace the paper template with the Romantic Corner cutting die, face down as shown above.
9. Remove the Rosebud SFC die cut from the die and poke out all of the little pieces. (Tip: Save swirls or other bits for upcoming projects.)
10. Cut a piece of white cardstock to fit behind the Rosebud piece. Attach with 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the edges. Add the die cut Romantic corner back into the die cut opening.
11. To complete the lace panel with pocket, place the Rosebud cardstock inside the Romantic Corner and tape the tags to the back.
12. Put Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the edges on the back of this panel and attach to the front of a white top- or side-fold card base.
13. Use the Susan’s Garden Dogwood die set to create a small branch of flowers. Using tiny dabs of Kids Choice Glue, the same glue used to assemble the flowers, adhere the flowers and branch ONLY to the white lace to ensure that the pocket doesn’t get stuck to the Rosebud SFD portion of the card front!
14. Die cut Happy Birthday from White Soft Finish Cardstock that is backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape prior to die cutting. Center the words at the top of the card front.
This is the card I designed for my granddaughter’s birthday. I tucked money down in the pocket. There is room inside the card for adding a message and the date.
