WOYWW: A Giveaway & Double Pocket Card Tutorial

Howdy folks! Today I have a rubber stamp giveaway for you but first since it is What’s on Your Work-desk Wednesday here is a pic of my desk:

DCF 1.0

I am right in the throws of making a batch of double pocket cards to sell at the Spring Fair next month. Here is the first one I made using beautiful stamps by About Art Accents. You can win this set of stamps, just leave a comment and I will chose a winner next Wednesday.

DCF 1.0

That’s it, no strings, pretty easy eh? It’s almost as easy as making this card, I made a quick 3 minute video tutorial to show you how:

I think these would be excellent Mother’s Day cards, especially with the seed packets, you could even include a gift certificate to a nursery so your mom could get some gardening supplies and plants too. I hear spring is on it’s way, tell that to the foot of snow we got yesterday!

DCF 1.0

Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win these gorgeous stamps from About Art Accents. If you want to see more crafty desks visit Julia’s Blog and til next time happy crafting!

  3. What a super idea Lindsay especially with the seed packets. I have a lot of gardening friends and will teach this as part of my Parks and Recreation classes if anyone signs up. LOL. I do a tea bag holder card wtih a library pocket saved from my years of teaching.

  4. These cards are great, I taught them at a class and we used them to give as gift cards, with store vouchers in, and added tags to the pockets – they’re so versatile!

  7. What a great tutorial – as always. I do believe even I could make these cards. These would be great for gift cards or any kind of gift certificate present. I want to make several to have on hand. Thanks so much for the idea and instructions. Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve next!

  10. Cute as a button. But having said that, leave me out of the giveaway – I would be very unlikely to use the stamp and on the off chance I got picked I’d rather it went to someone who loved it 🙂

    Happy WOYWW
