Crimped Pocket Envie ... Carrot Included

Pin It

There you are! So, today is "Holy Experiment Day" ... does this mean we're supposed to experiment with holy things or are we to experience feeling holy? Yikes, another religious controversy!

Today's paper project was created for SCS's "Technique Lovers" challenge, TLC 210, "Crimped Envelope Pocket Card." This really kewl technique was created by one of my very favorite stampin' peeps, Theresa at Crafting the Web. Yay, Theresa, you go!

To visit Splitcoast Stampers and see all the challenge deets, including the instructions for creating your own Crimped Envelope Pocket Card, clicky
HERE. To go straight to the SCS Crimped Envelope Pocket Card gallery, clicky HERE. To visit Theresa's blog ... and be prepared to be blown away by Theresa's gorgeous projects ... clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my Crimped Envelope Pocket Card, clicky on the photo above. Phew, that's exhausting!

For my pocket envie, I used a 70# Kraft A2 envelope and also hand-drew a l'il paper carrot to tuck inside with the card. I must warn you though, that forcing a thick Kraft envelope through your crimper might cause it to explode. Yup it will ... and ummm, it did! But boy-oh-boy, is it ever cute when you pull the top off the pocket and all the carrot "leaves" jump out!

For product info, refer to the supply list, below.

And now something from the "You Know You're In Florida When ... " files. Yesterday, the DH and I went to look at carpeting. While we we're poking around, a cute 20-something flagged down a salesman and asked for help in choosing carpeting for her first apartment.

"Do you know how big the room is?" the nice-carpet-man asked.

"Yup," she said. "It's 22 flip-flops long by 18 flip-flops wide."
