What's better on a hot summer day than an ice cream cone? I made this pocket card using the Scor-Pal and Smooch Accent Ink. Here's how:
Cut a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ Cardstock down to 5.5″ x 8.5″. Using the Scor-Buddy, score the card at 4.25″ and at 8.5″ to create a tri-fold card. The smaller flap on the right will form the pocket for giftcards or other “thank you” goodies.
Core a 2.5″ x 3.5″ piece of Kraft Cardstock diagonally. Line up two opposite corners along one score line on the Scor-Buddy. Score the line from corner to corner. Work out from the center line, scoring every 1/4″ to the right and left until the sheet is covered with score lines.
Rotate, lining up the other set of opposite corners and repeat. This will create a diagonal set of lines intersecting the first set, or a waffle pattern for the ice cream cone.
Adhere patterned paper trimmed to 4″ x 5.25″ to the front and two 4.25″ x 5.5″ inner sections of the card. Add a 2.5″ x 5.25″ strip of patterned paper to the flap and glue the top and bottom down to form a pocket. Add ribbon as desired.
Diecut a scoop of ice cream from cardstock and add to the front of the card with a sentiment. To make the ice cream shimmer, add Smooch Accent Ink to shade the diecut, giving it a more realistic feel.
Add a little Smooch Accent Ink to the cone for shading and sparkle. Apply the Smooch to the outside edge of the diecut first, working it towards the center with a circular motion, blending it into the cardstock.
The scoop of ice cream looks cool and refreshing with a little Smooch!
Add a gift card to the pocket of the card and it is ready to give as a thank you gift and card, all rolled into one.
