Tonic Studios Fairy Tale Pocket Card


It's my turn to post a project on Blog Tonic USA and here, and I am sharing a Fairy Tale Pocket Card I created using many of the new Reflections fairy dies and Illustrated Paper Pack sentiments, plus a few other new favorite dies. Because there are so many lovely dies in the Reflections Range, I thought a pocket card with its many folds was a perfect project to show them on. I recently purchased a very large scoring board and included in the packaging was a CD with instructions to some projects including a pocket card that required 12 x 18 cardstock to make. Of course, I cannot share those instructions here, but I did find a tutorial here on line that shows how to make a similar project using paper about 8 ½ by 11 inches. The picture above shows the pocket card closed. On the front I attached a “fairy tale wish” from the Fairy Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack. The pocket card is held closed with a ribbon attached from the front and back. I added some Sherbert Shimmer Glitter Drops in the corners and on the pink hearts.


This paper pack has 3 each of the fairy pictures and three different sentiments all beautifully colored ready to be cut out and used on your projects. I used the outline die of each fairy to cut out each of them as shown here: 



I die cut the Have a Beautiful Day sentiment and flowers from the Sew Pretty Circle Frame of the same name for the first page of the pocket card as you open it up. When the pocket card is completely open you see three more of the beautifully colored fairies from the Fairy Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack which were die cut with their matching outline dies. I added a candy treat in the center pocket with the “Cherish the Moment” from the Sew Pretty die of that name, but of course you could put a personal note or gift card in that or any of the pockets. The sentiments in the 1st and 3rd pockets slide out and were die cut with the Sew Pretty Pinhole Square Layering Die and the rectangle frame from Cherish the Moment Sew Pretty Set.


As you can see, all the squares of this fun pocket card were easy to fill when you have gorgeous dies and pictures like those in the Tonic Studios Fairy Wishes Reflections and Sew Pretty sets shared here today!
