Using up those scraps to make a pocket element is so easy. A book page is a great foundation to hold other papers. Don’t have fancy printed papers? Make your own by using gel prints or painted pages.
Starting out with an index card, Linda lightly sprays tattered angels glimmer mist, she then distressed the edges to give an aged effect with Walnut Stain Ink. Using postal cube, postmark collage and the iron finial rubber stamps she then creates a postcard featuring a faux stamp by Calico Collage.
Select a book page to fold in half. Linda cut the book page so that it would be about 7 inches wide. When the page is folded in half the page should be 7 inches long by about 5 inches wide. Fold the page again to create a pocket. Linda used a sheet from a tear off notepad to determine how wide to make the pocket. Apply distress ink to the edges.
Adhere strips of paper on the pocket and foundation to create interest and then take the the stitches stamp to the edge of the page to finish the look.
Autumn digitals by Calico Collage elements are featured on the outside pocket. The finial rubber stamp with distress ink on a scrap of paper Linda tucks into the larger side pocket. This is a great idea for using up those larger bits of paper you’ve been saving.
