Dream




Today's Paper Makeup Stamps' Digi Makeover Challenge is to make a pocket card.



Once I decided to use this Word Art from Paper Makeup Stamps, I designed a criss-cross type of card to fit this rectangle.  I added glitter to the edges by first applying double sided tape (so I would have straighter lines) and then I added PK Glitz glitter as well as some rick rack ribbon.  I also changed the colors of the word art by using my Gimp software (it's like Paint.net, but for a Mac).  I still wanted a bit more sparkle, so I outlined the letters of "dream" in coordinating Spica glitter pens and used Smooch Pearlized Ink (siren) to bling up the heart.

Once I had my pocket made, I wanted to make a basic card shape so I could add a note to the recipient on the inside.  I hand stitched along one corner and added buttons to finish it off.

You have one week to upload your pocket card to the Digi Makeover Challenge link button.  Don't forget you must use a digi for our challenges.  Check out what great pocket card ideas the rest of the team came up with too.
