Here's another reverse pocket card sample. This one uses stamps from a cute little Wordsworth set called Ghosties from Rubber Soul(be sure to check out the other cute Halloween stamps too, they are cute!!). I stamped the square sentiment block in black, colored in with a purple Copic marker, then added purple Stickles to some outline letters. I stamped the word *Booo* on the mat underneath then added an extra SU! Eggplant cardstock mat. The patterned paper is from Rusty Pickle, base cardstock is Stampin' Up! River Rock and the squiggly background stamp is also from Rubber Soul from the Backgrounds set. Grosgrain ribbon is from Stampin' Up! and purple sequins are from my local scrapbook store.
Reverse Pocket Card Instructions:
1. Cut cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11". Score at 5-1/2" and fold in half (my photo should read fold 4-1/4" x 11" card in half...sorry about that). Add patterned paper to front of card or stamp.
2. Score bottom of card at 1-1/2" and fold. This fold will be on the inside of the card. Adhere the two outer sides of the fold to the inside of the card with sticky strip. Be sure to put sticky strip far enough apart so that a gift card will fit inside. Stamp top of card with background.
3. Punch the Stampin' Up! slit punch as far in as it will go in on the top center of the card.
4. Adhere the focal image piece to the front of the card with sticky strip. It's easiest to punch the slit punch first, add sticky strip to the front focal image, then place the focal image piece under the slit portion.....then press down to secure the sticky strip. This focal image piece can be whatever size you like, depending on the size of your stamped image, mats, etc.
5. Tie ribbon around card front. This can also help to hold down the gift card, stamped images or maybe a note you want to insert in the pocket.
