TUTORIAL: C136 SHORE BREAK MIXED MEDIA CARD & PHOTO HOLDER BY LORRAINE HADDATH

This card & photo holder is so versatile and would make the perfect gift for someone to commemorate that special holiday or moment. The pocket could also be filled with journal cards, recipes, gift card, tags or whatever your heart desires!

Supplies required:

  • FabScraps C136 collection papers
  • FabScraps 8x8 coordinated cardstock
  • Heavyweight white A4 card stock for base of card
  • Chipboard or die cut ships wheel
  • FabScraps blue flat backed pearls
  • Twine
  • Distress inks – dark blue, turquoise and vintage photo
  • White Gesso and Gold paint
  • Gel medium and Dimensional glaze
  • Double sided tape, glue
  • Micro beads, art stones, mini shells, sequins
  • FabScraps anchor charm and chain
  • Sentiment from C136 012
  • Optional: I added the orange feathery sea plant cut out pieces to the pocket and front of the card which I have had for many years but knew it would come handy one day!!!

 

Instructions and measurements in inches:

  1. Take 1 x A4 heavyweight cardstock and with long side at top score down at 1 ¼From the mauve cardstock cut a piece 11.5 “ x 5.5” and score down the short side at 1¼”, 1¾”, 10 & 10½”. Fold score lines and burnish well
  2. Take 2 pieces of the A4 white card stock and with long side at top score each at 4.1” fold over, burnish and cut off excess.
  3. Glue or tape the two smaller pieces to the sides of the larger piece at the outer score line so the folded edges are in the middle when closed.
  4. Cut the 8 x 8 papers as follows:
  • 1 leave at 8 x 8”
  • Cut 2 at 8” x 3.7”
  • Cut 1 piece for front of pocket 6 x 2¼”
  1. Cut the FabScraps papers as follows:
  • For center panel – C136 004 but from top left - 7¾ x 7¾
  • Inside side panels – C 136 003 cut from right and left sides 2 pieces 7,6” x 3,5”
  • For outside panels cut from top right corner of C136 001 2 pieces 7,6” x 3,5”
  1. Adhere all card stock and FabScraps papers to inside of card
  2. Layer the die cut wheel cut outs and stick a magnet under the last piece at back on end of opposite wheel spokes. Paint with Gesso then ink, color splatter and cover with dimensional glaze and add pearls
  3. Fold card together and place the wheel in center then place magnets between the card stock and FabScraps paper so the wheel will act as a closure. Alternatively, do not add magnets but stick the left half of the wheel to the left panel centering down the folded edges.
  4. Make the pocket by cutting a piece of the white cardstock at 3½” x 8¼”. Score on 3 sides at ½” and 1”. Cut away the 3 outside blocks on the bottom of the pocket and then score and burnish, snipping into the remaining block to tuck in to create the pocket. Before gluing the pocket together adhere the cardstock then the FabScraps paper to front. Glue pocket together and stick to inside page in center 1/8” from bottom of FabScraps paper.
  5. Ink and adhere the sentiment above the pocket.
  6. Decorate the pocket using fussy cut images, shells, art stones, beads etc.
  7. Tip: Place some cardboard or a 6x6 paper pad into the pocket while decorating the front in the same way as the pocket.
  8. I made some dew drops using the dimensional glaze on plastic which once dry lift off easily to use in the decorating.
  9. Add a sentiment to front
  10. Make photo mats using the FabScraps papers or cardstock and add photos then place in pocket.
