Apron Pocket Card

Once in a while, you may want to slip a little treat to a friend. Or maybe some KoolAid for a summer drink. haha. Here is a darling idea for a slender package.




When you pull out the treat, you can read a fun sentiment (by Paper Makeup Stamps).


I started off using Paper Temptress' Sour Apple Pop Tones cardstock (4 x 11 inches)  for the base of this card.  Score the bottom and fold up at 3.5 inches.  The top will need to be trimmed to fit into a standard envie.  Remember that you will need to plan for any trim that hang down off your apron.  The pink is Pink Lemonade Pop Tones, while the white is Blanc Sparkle.

The trick to get the two side curves to match:  Sketch one side and cut it off in one piece. Then, flip the discarded shape. Trace it to the opposite side...cut it out.  Works every time...no worries!

This card is also for the ERPOM #6 challenge...Make a card based on a movie.  One of the most recent films I have seen is "Julie and Julia."  So...an apron card is most appropriate!


Edited:  Tanda Stamps is giving away a prize if you participate in tihe Tuesday Taggers. I really enjoy the Tuesday Taggers Challenge!
