Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #229, the 5th of May 2024 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card:

Here is a close up of the coloured image:

I cut the coloured image with my paper cutter and then adhered it to a white square card from Envelope Solutions after I stamped the sentiment from a now discontinued stamp set called Bloomin' Wonderful by Power Poppy in Bahama Blue Memento ink with my MISTI.

I also added a pocket inside the card for a gift card and a sentiment card. I have used the Right Pocket Die from La-La Land Crafts, as well as the Rain Boot Die - both were die cut from Funky Fossil Organics by Dellow Designs which I picked up at a craft show from Natalie May Scrapbooking - an awesome craft shop near me!
I adhered the base of the rain boot to the boot using Art Glitter glue and then adhered the boot to the pocket, then I scored and adhered the pocket to the inside of the card.
For the sentiment card, I die cut a rectangle from green cardstock using one of the Rounded Stitched Rectangles Die, then I stamped a sentiment from another now discontinued stamp set called Good Thinking: Renewal also by Power Poppy in Vintage Sepia Versafine ink.
I tucked it into the pocket.

Here is a photo before being adhered to the card:

So, here is a final photo:

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes and bonus classes.
