2 "Cheeky" cards for Pink and Main Stamps

Good Afternoon!

I am here today to share two cards using the new fab pocket stamp set, Pocket Full of Sunshine by Pink and Main Stamps. I had a little too much fun with these. I sat down to play with them and I just started thinking about how cute these would look as actual pockets on a pair of jeans. Then I set out to figure out how to make that happen...our new heart dies! So was born two "cheeky" cards! Details are below, including a list of products used.

My Process
First I took the largest Pink and Main heart die and cut it into a card (folded the paper and placed the die just slightly inside the cut line). I used a peach color for one and kraft color for the other. I used  P&M and other patterned papers to create the shirts and jeans. To help make the pockets look for authentic, I put two brads in each pocket. I also made sure to follow the outside stitching of the heart with black ink to tie it all together. The stamped goodies in the pockets were colored using my prismas. I put glossy accents on the phone and glasses for some dimension and used foam tape to pop the pockets off the jeans. The belt on the light jean card was a border die. The belt on the darker jean card was just a strip of paper I ran through an embossing folder to make it look more leathery. The belt loops were made using the die that comes with the set on the light card, and I free handed the loops on the dark one. Both will fit in a standard A2 envelope.
