Pick a Pretty Pocket Card Project - February Step It Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the February 2017 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! The theme is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. My trigeminal neuralgia pain has kept me away from stamping for quite a while, so I'm going to keep things simple for this blog post.

The card above is from the Sale-a-Bration FREE product, called the Pretty Pocket Card Kit. The top picture is the card all assembled, the picture under that shows the little note card pulled out. The kit is pretty much peel and stick to put the pocket card together, there is no stamping required! You CANNOT purchase this kit, but you CAN choose this item for FREE with a $50 purchase.

Stampin' Supplies: Pretty Pocket Card Kit (Sale-a-Bration FREE Item), Paper Snips (to cut the twine to 18"). Seriously, that's ALL you need to put the cards together--and you get an envelope for each card (there are 8 in the kit).

To Step It Up this month, I made a little open-topped box with the same supplies used for making the card. I tried really hard not to use much of anything else except what would be used to make one of the cards in the kit, but I did need to add some adhesive. I also crinkle-cut some Calypso Coral card stock to toss into the bottom of the box. The Lindor truffles I put inside are Strawberries & Cream, for Valentine's Day, but you could use some crinkle-cut Wild Wasabi card stock for "grass" and put a couple or few Cadbury eggs in there for Easter :-) The greetings on the stickers in the kit only say 'hello' or 'thank you' (also in French, German, and Spanish), but I think that can still work with either holiday theme.

Stampin' Supplies: Pretty Pocket Card Kit (Sale-a-Bration FREE Item), Paper Snips (to cut the twine to 18"), Calypso Coral card stock, Stampin' Trimmer (to cut and score card stock), Tear & Tape Adhesive, Fringe Scissors, Paper Piercing Tool (to poke holes for the twine). {I sort of made this project on the fly, so I'll have to look at it and see if I can simplify the directions for you later.}

  4. This kit makes it so easy to create a cute card...but your step up with Chocolate is so cute. And wouldn't want to get one of those??
