A Pocket full o’ eScape

I must apologise for this late post - I've had networking connection issues and after a stressful phone call with hubby at work we have 'patched' it for now!

Its with great pleasure I share with you a project that Design Diva Becky Roberts created for her eScape project. I sure wish I lived in Idaho so I could go make this set at her event!!

Becky has made this gorgeous little set using the eScape bundle available in USA – now remember each country has their own bundles so check with your demonstrator to see what is available in your area – ask her for the details of a local event for you to go along to and enjoy the 'e'Scape!

Here is the set ... isn't it gorgeous?

For this project you will need

  • Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Circle of Friendship Stamp Set
  • Little Pieces Stamp Set
  • Wide Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon
  • Rose Red Ink Pad
  • Brads
  • Circle ( 1/2 " 1" and 1 ¼") and Designer Label Punches

Cards:

3"x 6" Rose Red cardstock. Score at 3" and ¾". Fold on score lines and cut 1/8" off the flap. It needs to be shortened a bit so it doesn't interfere with the hole in the card. Use the 1 ¼" circle punch to put a hole in the card. (Try to centre it about 3/8" from the edge and the bottom of the card).

Stamp with Rose Red using Little Pieces and use the corner rounder on the top corners. Fold the wide Very Vanilla Grosgrain in half and tie around the pocket card to hold closed.

Insert pieces:

Very Vanilla 2 ½" x 2 9/16
Chocolate Chip 2 5/8" x 2 11/16"

Stamp Very Vanilla piece with Rose Red, stamped off once so it isn't so bright, with Little Pieces. Stamp Circle of Friendship with Rose Red on Very Vanilla and use 1" punch. Stamp again with Basic Black on Rose Red cardstock. Punch out centre with ½" punch and the outside with 1" punch. Fold the ring over and that is the topper for the ribbon on the top of the cards. Attach the centre with a Stampin' Dimensional. I mounted the Circle of Friendship on a 1 ¼" Chocolate Chip circle.

Card Holder:

Rose Red cardstock is 5" x 8". Score spine at 3 ½" and 4 ½". Score flaps up at 1" and 1 ½". Fold on all score lines and decorate as desired.

Thanks Becky for sharing this wonderful project!
