Pocket Card swap cards

The Swap of the Month with my Yahoo group ORSA is a card fold. The swap involves making 3 identical cards and I will get 3 different cards back.
Inspired by a past Paper Pumpkin kit I make 3 pocket cards with inserts. A template is provided below.

The base is Wisteria Wonder as I was planning on using the Daisy Delight DSP and that is one of the colors in the paper.  I used one of the cards from the Paper pumpkin kit as a template. The notch was made using a large oval punch.

On the front I adhered 2 patterns of the DSP with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon over the seam. On top of the DSP I adhered a 1/8" strip of Wisteria Wonder.

I just love flowers, and a Daisy flower is no exception.  Two daisies were stamped using Wisteria Wonder ink.  For each flower, two Daisies were punched with the Daisy punch.


Before adhering them together, the petals were shaped using a bone folder and then pressed down in the center.  This makes the petals curve up and then down. The two were adhered together alternating petals.

I stamped a third Daisy, which I cut in half and added to the insert.

The centers, which were first stamped with Daffodil Delight and then Crumb Cake, were punched with the 1/2" circle punch and added to the flower center with a dimensional.  A gold faceted gem as adhered on top of that.


For each Daisy two leaves were stamped and cut out by hand.  They were first stamped with Pear Pizzazz with the outline stamped in Old Olive.  Before adding them to the Daisy, the edges were sponged with Old Olive and scored down the center. I punched a 1 3/4" scallop circle in Wisteria Wonder to be the base for the flower.  The flower was built on this scallop circle which was then adhered to the card front.

The sentiment, stamped in Black Memento, is from the same stamp set.

To complete the outside, I added a smaller gold faceted gem on either side of the notched edge.




The Insert:

This is a 4 by 5 1/8" piece of Whisper White whose edges have been rounded with the corner rounder punch.
Along the bottom is stamped a row of Daffodil Delight daisies.
At the top, visible from the notch are stamped 2 smaller daisies in Wisteria Wonder.  The first is a solid image stamped with second generation stamped.  On top of that is a Daisy stamped with the outline stamp on a separate piece of Whisper White.  It was cut out and adhered to the top of the stamped Daisy.
In between the Daisies I stamped some tiny Daffodil Delight coils and 4 tiny Daisies underneath.

The remainder of the sentiment is stamped about half way down with half of the cut out Daisy adhered on the side just below it.

I added some gold Dazzling Details to the centers of the smaller Daisies and the half Daisy on the insert.
