Denim Pockets Card

This is my card from stamp club last night.  Shirley, aka Okieladybug, and I missed the last two months because of the heat and things going on in our lives so we decided to just knuckle down and go last night even though it was around 110°---again!

Yesterday while getting my supplies together to take to stamp club, I came up with this idea for a card.  So that I'd actually get something done while at stamp club, I precut the pockets and printed the sentiment and took the other supplies with me.  Most of the time I get too busy talking and accomplish nothing, so taking a card kit assures I'll get at least one completed!

The pockets were cut using Design Studio and the Freshly Picked cartridge.  They're a detail for the overalls so I cut them with the real size dial set at about 4" and then used the hide contour feature to omit cutting the pieces I didn't want.

A white gel pen was used to do the stitching on the pockets.  I got busy talking--imagine that!-- and forgot to ink the edges on the pockets.  I took a prototype for reference and noticed this morning that those had been inked.

The mail in the pockets is clip art images that I sized in Hallmark card making software, then cut out by hand.  The sentiment was done in the same program and punched with a Stampin' Up word window punch.

The bandana print paper is from Paper Studio's Yee Haw stack and the background is a single sheet of Paper Studio denim printed paper.

It's not evident in the photo, but the bandana print has a yellow color rather than white in the paisley shapes so the card front is a pale yellow that matches.  The photo makes the card front appear to be white.
