I started off by die-cutting the Stitched Pocket Die from white woodgrain paper (the texture reminded me of denim). I inked it with a heavy amount of Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink, then went over the stitched lines that are embossed into the pocket with a white gel pen to make the detail stand out a bit more.
I stamped the Polkadot Pattern Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink, then die-cut it with the second largest die in the A2 Clean Cut Layers Set A Die Set. I wanted my blues to match, so I die-cut another panel of white cardstock with the largest die in the same set and inked around the outside with the same ink.
I used sentiments from the Smarty Pants Stamp Set, stamped them with Faded Jeans, then cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. I also die-cut two more of each die from heavyweight white cardstock to layer behind them for dimension.
The sentiment die-cuts were adhered together with liquid glue, then adhered to the front of the pocket. (Every new college student needs a Starbucks GC, am I right?)
The Oh My Stars Holographic Confetti Stars were the perfect accent to catch the light and add a bit of shine.
I love this unique way to gift a GC!!
Thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!! Have a good one!!
