Card Positioning Systems Sketch meets JustRite

This weeks Card Positioning Systems sketch is sponsored by JustRite! You have until Saturday, February 6, 8pm CST to play along! If you share your CPS creation (details on their BLOG) you will receive a chance to win JustRite's new set, STITCHED WITH LOVE! How cool is that? I turned the CPS sketch to create a vertical creation. I will be using this creation to give a garden center gift card. So, this Journal Note from Crafty Secrets Homemade fit the sketch nicely! I purchased my note pack from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I trimmed the bottom, but left a few lines to write a message. The Kraft card stock is 4' x 11" and scored 2 11/16" in from the top and bottom. I then marked the center of the flap end (2"), and cut diagonally from the score line to the center mark. The point was corner rounded.
The stamped sentiment is from JustRite's set, Seeds of Kindness. All circles are punched using EKSuccess punches.
I have shown you how I placed my dimensionals to create a channel, so my string runs through it perfectly.
You can see the placement of the black circle to the top flap. I stitched the journal note to the black card stock, then machine stitched along the sides and bottom of the black creating a pocket for the gift card. Scor Tape is used to adhere to Kraft card stock and also to attach the Kraft to the green.
Ink: StazOn Black, Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink
Paper: Papertreyink Kraft, Crafty Secrets Homemade Journal Note (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), all other is SU
Other: Dimensionals, circle punches- ,oval punch, sponge dauber,sewing machine, Glue Glider (Joan's Gardens), Jute String (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store)
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it so very much! The JustRite set, I used yesterday for my pin cushion project is shown in it's entirety HERE. Take good care!
