For my project for the Hop I've created a fold out card with a special gift card pocket on the inside flap. He's holding the most adorable diecut maple leaf, just waiting to start his Canada Day celebrations!!
I stamped this cute little guy and the two logs on watercolour paper and coloured him in with Prima Watercolor Pencils. Then I layered him on a banner diecut with a Spellbinders banner die from the new Wild Whisper Strong & Free patterned paper. I used some Kaisercraft border dies to add faux stitching to the front panel and the inside pocket below.
To create this card I cut two pieces of kraft cardstock 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", then I cut my white cardstock insert at 3 3/4" x 11", and scored that at 5" and 10". You can see the video that I followed along with HERE. I added a Double Double pocket- because what could be more Canadian, eh?! from the Wild Whisper Strong & Free card pack. You can see a little tab I diecut and behind I tucked in a Timmy's gift card for the recipient!
Here's a look at the card opened up all the way. I decorated with some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and used an adorable little Taylored Expressions maple leaf die tied on with some Burlap String from the SpiegelMom Scraps store.
Here's a look at this adorable set!
