Today I'm sharing a card style I haven't used in ages, but after finding some old instructions whilst 'attempting' to begin a clear out of the craft room a few weeks ago, I re-discovered my liking for kinetic cards and instead of carrying on with the clearing, proceeded to make one.... and this is the result.I think it's called a swinging top pocket..it's a small card with the fold at the base and is sealed each side to form the pocket. The front of the card is cut about 4cms shorter than the back and second piece of card is attached to the top of the card with a brad, overhanging the 'join' slightly.
Before doing all this, I covered the entire card (back, front and inside) with papers from my stash...it's a good way of using up small pieces, so in some way I was continuing my clear up!!! The top piece, which is the 'cover' must be covered in the same paper.
Sometimes when I'm in colouring mode, I will stamp and colour some images ready for use and this was the case with the two House Mouse stamps used on this card.They were all ready coloured with Promarkers, waiting to be added to a card!
I hope you are all well and not snowed in...we are supposed to be getting quite a lot tonight and I'm not looking forward to that at all! Friday is a non work day for me, but Tom has a long drive to work, which isn't so good.
Take care all,
