Hambo is once again a sponsor of the SCS “Hope You Can Cling To” campaign, running through October. For today’s Hambo post, I decided to play along with one of these challenges – HYCCT1316. The Challenge was to:

  • Create a pocket card, or a card with a pocket on it.
  • Bonus 1: To fill the pocket with hope, add a star or stars OR a heart or hearts.
  • Bonus 2: Make it orange (leukemia) or pink (breast cancer and our traditional color for HYCCT).

Hambo Love

For my card, I used Hambo’s Heart Basket digital image. It is a sweet and simple image with a straight forward message – “Sending all my love”. It truly makes me smile!

As the challenge called for a pocket, I made a twisted card. I used lots of pink for breast cancer awareness and I punched out various coordinating hearts and dropped them into the inside pocket. This technique creates a pocket on both the outside and inside of the card. I sealed the outside pocket. When the lucky recipient opens the card, they will find a pocket full of love. This is such a fun card to make! Get the tutorial here.

Note: For this card base, use a general (not luxury) cardstock or it else it will be too bulky.
