Something a bit different

The kids school is closed today so I have them all at home and they are playing nicely with each other for a change so I have had a bit of time to make a few cards. I can only show 1 just now though because the others are for DT work.
I went to Splitcoast Stampers again this morning and had a look through all the different projects for one I hadn't tried before. I have done most of them but I found a pocket card that I haven't tried before although I have done something similar in the past, but thought I would give it a go anyway. So here it is.

Oops just noticed I have cut a bit of the top out on this pic. Never mind the curve was wonky anyway so will have to fix it later and you can see it in the pic below anyway. I have been trying to use up my papers that I have had for ages. I got 70 12x12's off ebay a while back for £10 and although I liked most of them there was the odd few that I wasn't sure about and this is one of them. It's kind of growing on my though lol.
You can see the tutorial on Splitcoast so there's no point in me telling you the sizes and where to fold etc. I have used one of my new craft stamps from Janlynn. This is one called birthday presents is from their new range. I have coloured with copics and stuck it on the belly band. I didn't measure if it would fit first but it was exactly the right size :)
I used a Anna Griffin brass stencil that I have had for yonks to emboss a border around the band just so it wasn't too plain, and insted of using loads of embelishments like I normally do, I just done some faux stitching around the edges.

I kept the inside really simple but to the point. I decided that I woould make this into an invitation and just done the "Your Invited" on the computer. I used part of the presents stamp and also the Admit One ticket stamp which is also from the new range. I don't know if you can see the writing on it very clear here but it does show up well in real life. I just stamped it onto brown paper.
I think you could do a lot with this ticket stamp and I'm sure I will use it a lot. What would you use it for? Any ideas letme know and I might try it out :)
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are all having a fab Friday!
