ATS Wednesdy Challenge - Double Pocket Card

Hello! The challenge today at the All That Scraps Challenge Blog is to make a Double Pocket Card. Instructions can be found HERE. It may just be me, but I had a little bit of a hard time following the written instructions - luckily there is a video tutorial there too and that makes it very clear!

Here is a picture of my card with the pocket inserts pushed down (Actually, the top pocket has the tag in it but pushed down, the bottom pocket does not have the gift card in it in this photo!)

Here is a picture showing the items in the pockets halfway pulled out.

I had so much fun making this card! I love thinking of Shimmer catching a wave - she looks like such a Surfer Chick to me! I got the idea for the waves from a page in the latest Creating Keepsakes magazine where they used clear embossing powder and seed beads to make the waves look all frothy. I couldn't get the beads to stick in the embossing powder though, so I ended up using Crystal Effects. All of the surfboards were cut from a sheet of DP.

The Details:
Stamps: Shimmer Redkelp (Sweet November Stamps) - All That Scraps
Paper: Fancy Pants Designs, Cool Carribean, Night of Navy (SU), White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20

Tail: Y15,Y17,YR04,YR07,YR09,R24,R29
Clothes: R24,R29,R39
Misc: Fiskars Wave Border Punch, Crystal Effects

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us at the All That Scraps Challenge Blog. There is a prize offered every week and all you need to do to be eligible is make your creation using one of the MANY stamps sold at All That Scraps and upload it to the ATS Challenge Blog by 10PM EST Tuesday!
