Shabby Chic Cupboard

Good morning friends.  Today I have a picture tutorial to show how to make this Shabby Chic Pocket card.

Start with an 8 and 1/2 by 10 inch piece of cardstock.  Score at 2 and 1/8 and 6 and 3/8.

Turn horizontally on Score-Pal and score at the 4 inch mark just to the score lines.  Score at 7 inches from top to bottom.  Remove areas marked with X and cut on solid lines to make tabs.  Apply adhesive and fold up to form pocket.  Decorate as desired.

I used several dies to decorate my pocket card.  I used the large bowl from the CottageCutz  Stacking Bowls.  I used the cherries from the CottageCutz Oven Mitt and Stuff for the decorative plates in the cupboard.  I used the CottageCutz Tea Time Border die, the Oval Doily and Frame, and the CottageCutz Strawberry Mini.  If you have any questions about my tutorial, please ask in the comments and I will get back to you.  Thanks so much!

I am entering this into this challenge:
Moxie Fab Gingham Challenge

Does it get any more gingham than this?  I saw this challenge on someone elses blog so I just had to enter.  I am a huge gingham fan!

Hugs and smiles,


  1. JANICE!!! This is SOOO clever! you are a genius and a fabulous crafter. I just love this project and I am going to try and make one too. Not having any of the dies will be a challenge, but I'll get around that.
    (Might have to pay a visit to CC though to get at least ONE of the dies.(Love that teapot border).
