Pocket Full of Love ... Joy Fold Card ...

For the person who "Anonymously" posted a comment that they were waiting to see another card from me, here you go!

When I saw that the current Crazy 4 Challenge #96 was to create a Joy Fold Card I knew that Scraptastical Kreations Digi Stamp Pocket Full of Love would be perfect for this challenge.

Details on this card will be provided below all of the pictures. ;o)
Folded Card
One fold opened.

Second Fold Opened
The first thing I did was print out my Pocket Full of Love stamp.  Once again I printed two copies of the exact same size.  Once I got into my craft room/space in my basement I chose the paper to use, cut and scored all the pieces needed and set it aside.  Now to color my stamp.  First I cut out the pocket only of one of the copies leaving the paper above the bear.  Next I cut out the bear only from the second copy to use as a mask, which I attached with removable glue dots.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink and Memento Ink on the pocket, removed the mask, then colored my lovable bear, and fussy cut the rest of the stamp out.  Then I cut out the extra heart and used the same inking technique on it, and popped it on with 3D Foam Squares.  I then put all the pieces together, and cut the bottom of the cardstock to match the pocket shape.  I then cut out 2 hearts from the extra PP ... one was placed over the heart, and one was placed at the bottom of the pocket with a 3D Foam Square to tuck the pocket under.

I left the inside completely blank for now.  I will be giving this to my hubby for his birthday next month so I a month to figure out what to write inside.

Hope my design inspires you to go forth and create!
