I love love love the technique that Dawn showed us in the newest Make It Monday video on Nichole's blog! I couldn't wait to try it. I used Out of this World for the "theme" and attached a rocket to the little message tag to pull it up out of the pocket. I added those fun grungey-ish stars to the front of the pocket from Est. 1776.
But notice the top edge of my pocket? That isn't an edger die.... that's Mat Stack 5! I wanted to vary the shape of the top edge and the front edge for added interest... and because I just LOVE Mat Stack 5. But this presented an engineering problem, as I wanted to use the "positive" shape of the die, not the negative shape, but only cut one edge. A-HA! Light bulb moment! (They are few and far between, lol.) I lined up my Spring Rain cardstock carefully on the top edge of the die, and ran it through my Big Kick just far enough to cut that top edge. Then I reverse cranked it right back out, and voila - a Mat Stack 5 edge, right where I wanted it!
I attached the rocket on the tag so that the flames would stick out over the top of the pocket, and added the sentiment to the tag along with a Fillable Frame.
The front sentiment "thank you" is from a Verve set, and the "friend" is from Flutterby Friend. I also used Polka Dot Basics 2 for the large dot background on Lemon Tart, and Geometrics for the grid at the bottom. The eyelet border die in Enchanted Evening is the border and Edgers 1 made the edge on the front of the pocket.
Thanks for looking!
