Something for the men



Welcome to our May Jems blog hop!




The theme this month is ‘something for the men’ 
Make sure you hop around and see the other creative makes!

  
I chose to use one of my favourite sets from the spring/summer catalogue – the lift me up bundle.


I instantly fell in love with this set and could see how versatile it would be. I’m so glad its carrying on to the new catalogue! Its worth noting though that it is currently available in a bundle with a saving of 10% which will finish when the new catalogue is released in June.


Here I used a colour palette of whisper white, smoky slate, night of navy and pool party to create this cute little pocket card. I’ve seen Julie Kettlewell of The Paper Haven make several of this style card and thought I’d give it a go last week – I have now made several myself in different colourways and using different stamps sets!! They are a lovely way to send a quick note to someone and once I’d worked out measurements I’ve found them quick and easy to recreate! 


I used an A5 piece of card stock, scored on the long side at 10cm and 20cm, and on the short side at 14cm. The inner card base is 9.5cm x 13.8cm. Then I just mat and layer different colours and stamp away to my hearts content!


I hope you like it! I’ll update my blog with my other pocket card designs soon!


Please do hop around and see what everyone else has been up to using the links below!


Thanks for reading, Sam x
