Seed Pocket

Simon Says Stamp | Just For You Release

Hi there!

Are you getting ready to plant your garden? Every year I say I’m going to plant some flowers for pots on my deck and that I’m going to make a couple raised beds for veggies…and every year that never happens. I am simply not a gardener. I have a true appreciation for those of you that are, though! I’ve seen some amazing gardens and I know a lot of people who find gardening very therapeutic. And me? I’m perfectly content in my role as Garden Appreciator Extraordinaire! LOL!

My card today is a seed pocket gift card that I like to give my gardener friends in the hopes they will gift me back with the fruits of their labor <hint hint if you happen to be one of those>  For this card, I chose basil. I love basil.

To make this card:

  1. 1.I measured my seed packet and created a pocket that would fit around it – being careful to leave enough room for the seed packet to slide in an out but not so much that it falls out easily.
  2. I used a circle die to cut out the little dip in the front of the pocket. You could also use a circle punch.
  3. I Assembled the pocket, putting twine around it a few times and then securing it to a cream-colored panel with strong double sided adhesive tape.
  4. I stamped the label from the Herb Labels stamps set using permanent black ink, then heat embossed it with clear.
  5. Next, I stamped the word “Basil” from the set in the middle of the label using the same method as in step 4.
  6. I cut the label out and adhered it to the seed pocket.
  7. I stamped the basil leaves using Ink on 3 Fade Out ink on a piece of Desert Storm cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers to get a no-line coloring effect.
  8. To add a few details to the basil, I used my Prismacolor color pencils, then I fussy cut it out to add to my card.
  9. I added the basil to the front of the seed pocket by the label, popping it up using foam adhesive.
  10. I add the panel to my card base and then rounded the corners with my corner- rounder.

Are you a gardener? Or a garden appreciator like me?

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope this card inspires you to create something amazing!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
