✧ Birthday Pocket Card ✧

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend :) 

Today's tutorial is for a pocket Birthday card. I wanted to trial a new type of card as I haven't tried any new styles for a couple of weeks now.

I really like the subtlety of the colours used in today's card and also the simplicity of the look it achieves.

This make could also work really well as a small stash make as it only uses two colours of card stock and two colours of ink. 

The stamp set I have used today is the Happiest of Days set from Stampin Up.

Happiest of Days Clear-Mount Stamp Set


Card stock needed -

White card stock (3 pieces)

1 piece @ 6 x 3 inches (15 1/2 x 7 1/2 cms)

1 piece @ 6 x 5 inches (15 1/2 x 13 cms)

1 piece @ 4 x 4 inches (10 1/2 x 10 1/2 cms)

Soft Sky card stock (1 piece)

6 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches (16 x 13 1/2 cms)

Ink pads used -

Marina Mist 

Soft Sky

On the largest piece of white card stock, firstly stamp the cake image from the set using the soft sky ink pad.

Re-stamp over the top of the cake images using the Marina Mist ink pad. (You are wanting the two colours to be slightly off set from each other)

Next with the piece of white card that measures 6 x 3 inches (15 1/2 x 7 1/2 cms)

Use the Marina Mist ink pad to stamp the set of presents. 

Once on the left hand side of the card stock and once on the right hand side.

In the centre, stamp the cake image using the Marina Mist ink pad.

With a strong adhesive, attach a strip of silver ribbon along the top edge of the card stock you have just stamped.

Attach the smaller piece of white card stock to the larger one by using dimensional's down each side and a strip of tear and tape along the bottom edge. (This will create the pocket and your card front)

Back the card front onto the soft sky card stock using tear and tape.

For the sentiment, I used a stamp from the set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. (Stampin' Up)

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment; from the set onto a piece of white card using the marina mist ink pad.

Re-stamp the sentiment a little off centre with the soft sky ink pad.

Use the 2" circle punch to cut the sentiment out.

Attach the circle only to the bottom half of the pocket. Use tear and tape.

For the cards insert, stamp a sentiment onto the square piece of white card stock.

Attach a blue gem onto the centre of the top edge and place the insert into the pocket.


You now have a really simple but pretty card.

As always, everything used will be listed down below.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will see you all tomorrow.

Take care & Always sparkle
