First create the background of your card by using the Live Well Clear Rubber Stamps and a Medium Square Handle and begin arranging your choice of words to fill the block. Once your are happy with the arrangement begin filling in your card face. Ink the stamps in a dark pigment ink and stamp the first image in the upper left hand corner. Stamp a second time off setting the stamps diagonally downward to create a shadow for the letters. This adds depth and detail to your design. Once you have filled the card face, ink the edges using the sponge dauber. Lightly ink over the suface of the card to add a hint of color throughout the design.
Make the pocket by taking the pocket cardstock and scoring down the center to form a 3 1/2″ x 5″ card. Fold, then lay out flat on a cutting mat and cut diagonally across the front side. Begin cutting at the top of the crease angling away to the right hand side of the paper.
Next Line the back flap of the pocket with a complementary pattern paper and glue in place.
