"Try It Different" Tuesday: Marshmallow Friends

Pamela Mercer (one of our three Lilac Inkers friends mentioned today) created this week's card on our main Inky website. It features 11057SC Marshmallow Friends Clear Set:


This is a versatile set because the stamps work great for all winter holidays, and it makes a cute card on its own or when paired with a cocoa packet:


It's easy to create the pocket card: Score a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock at 5 1/2" and 10", and use a corner rounder punch on all four corners. Mountain fold the scored line next to the 1" flap side, and valley fold on the other scored line at the middle. Then adhere the long sides of the pocket with red-lined tape on the inside edges, and insert your cocoa packet.

This card by Luba Balycz shows the Snow Cocoa image on the front, which is also available as a wood mounted stamp (2022F):


The inside of the card is just as cute as the outside:


Did you spot the Melty S'more image in the lower right? It's from the same Marshmallow Friends Clear Set (or 2031E as a wood mounted stamp), and it makes an adorable card on its own, too:


Pamela created the card above, as well as this one:


Both have Glossy Accents on the chocolate. The marshmallow is adorned with ultrafine glitter on the first card and white flocking on the second. Such fun finishing touches!

Or turn this image into a S'more Kit by placing the ingredients into a decorated pillow box:


Looking for something more elegant? Check out this simple yet lovely card by Cathy Myhowych:


It's 2023D Warmest Christmas Wishes in the wood mounted version. Or, if you use the clear set, you can mix and match the phrases to send "holiday" or "winter" wishes.
