Guest Design Michelle Wofford

Hello, Michelle Wofford here and I'm excited to be a guest designer for the Clear Scraps Blog. Today I would like to share with you a tutorial on to make a pocket card using the Belgrave Card from Clear Scraps
To make the pocket card you will need the large base piece and one of the smaller front pieces. Remove the protective film from one side of the acrylic. Trim a piece of patterned paper to the size of the base or adhere paper to base and trim excess with a craft knife.
Note: I used paper from a 6 x 6 pad. the base is a little longer than 6" so there is a small gap at the base. For this card it won't be visible, but if it bothers you add a piece of coordinating paper to the base. Remove protective film from one side of the smaller piece and adhere paper, trim excess with a craft knife.
Once your paper is trimmed flip the small piece over. With the protective film on, line up the sides with a ruler (or I used my score board) and mark 3 spots on both sides at 1/2", 1 1/4" and 2", leaving a gap from the sides between 1/8" and 1/4". Repeat on larger piece or just use the smaller piece as a guide for punching the base.
Use a crop-a-dile to punch the holes in both pieces.
Once the holes are made, remove the film on the back side of the acrylic. place a bit of adhesive on the bottom of the small acrylic piece and adhere to the base being careful to line up the holes. Secure the sides of the pocket by lacing ribbon up the sides.
Trim a piece of coordinating paper to slide inside the pocket that is 2 3/4" x 4 1/2". Add embellishments. The heart shape was created by die cutting a sheet of Clear Scraps acrylic and then embossing it using an embossing folder.
Add a little bling as a finishing touch.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, I certainly enjoyed creating for you. Thank you to Clear Scraps for the opportunity to design for them.
