WOJ Claudia ~ Inge ~ Jeanette Challenge

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 126

Happy Thursday! Thank you for stopping by today! Today I have posted a little video tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Inspiration and Tutorial Blog that shows how to make a criss-cross pocket card.You can see it –> here <-- .

I have challenged my wonderful friends and enormously talented fellow DT~sisters; Claudia & Inge to make one as well! We have started a challenge between the three of us and once a month, we will take turns challenging one another and providing a tutorial for our project on the WOJ blog! You can see their magnificent creations by clicking on these links: Claudia’s card and Inge’s card.

I was inspired by the gorgeous images in the April Stamp kit: 1001 Nights or Scheherazade. They are so exotic and I am going to admit right here that whenever I work with them, I start to sing the I Dream of Jeannie theme song. OMGosh! I used to wear my hair in a pony-tale just like that! Yup! My hair was so fine and got so tangled that my Mum would either pull it back like that or else make two long braids. I used to hate the torture of having it done every morning!

I embossed the image on the insert and the sentiment with gold embossing powder and I even added it to the edge of my cardstock too.

  • Paper: SU Kraft, Black & White cradstoick, Bo Bunny Glitter paper

Hi Jeanette! My daughter Greta made one of your criss-cross pocket cards. It turned out beautifully--thank you for inspiring her with your great video. I will try to make one myself too! Your sample is just beautiful. Hugs, Lisa :-)

Here's Greta's card!

What a perfekt card! Everything about it is beautiful, but I have to admit I am absolutely blown away with the "understated" inside - simple, elegant, understated yet totally scrumptious. Wow!
