Seth had an Army Party for his 5th birthday this year and I got some great photos of him and his friends dressed up in Army uniforms and camouflage. For his thank you cards, I wanted to give each boy’s family a copy of the photos on CD, so I needed a holder. Now I’ve done cardstock CD holders before (see HERE for a tutorial), but in this case, I wanted it to be a combined card & CD holder. Thus, I came up with this design….I’ll call it the Pocket Card CD-Holder. Check back tomorrow for a tutorial for making the holder.
I tried to use mainly Army colors….browns & greens. Since I didn’t have any military stamps, I used stars as my theme. To give it a grungy look, I used the direct-to-paper technique to distress my Old Olive cardstock. Simply lay your cardstock on a flat surface with scrap paper underneath….then press your open ink pad onto the cardstock, varying the angle of the ink pad until you get the look you want.
Stamp sets: fundamental phrases, classic stars wheel; Inks: old olive, chocolate chip, versamark; Cardstock: chocolate chip, old olive, so saffron, sweet pea designer paper stack; Tools: star punch, large star punch, sticky strip
