Supplies:

Directions:

  1. To make the double pocket fold base: Fold paper in half each way, then cut a slit on the fold on the left. Fold the bottom right corner over diagonally so the edge meets up with the middle bottom fold. Fold the upper corner in so the edge is 1” from the center top fold. Fold that portion over the right side. Fold the bottom portion up but unfold the bent over triangle. This will fold to the front and you can add a decorate edge where it folds over if desired. Then fold the rectangle piece to the back of the card and adhere down for stability. Secure edges of the pockets by setting eyelets, stapling or sewing it shut. *Refer to the video for a demonstration.
  2. Fold the circle punch out in half and stamp on a poppy motif. Stamp poppies on the tag as well. Stamp “You’re amazing” in a scrap of cardstock and adhere to card behind a bookplate. Add ribbon to the bookplate and tag.
  3. Adhere the folded circle to the seed packet and place in a pocket.
    Stamp reuse info on the back of the tag and insert in the other pocket.
    Glue down embellishments.
    *This card will fit a standard A2 Envelope

I love cards with a fancy fold or fun twist to them and I hope you do too! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Hey Twilight Fans!

Did I get anyone’s attention? Admit it, the books rock, just ask anyone who has read them! I made this double pocket card with a Twilight theme. I know some grads that would love it (with a Borders gift card in it of course) and it is so easy to make. FYI: That is a bookmark in the top pocket.

Stamp: art Impressions, Paper DCWV

Stamp: art Impressions, Paper DCWV

I used a sheet of 8 1/2″x11″ cardstock and adhered a sheet of red rose pattern paper (you may know this print because it was in like every stack of paper the DCWV put out between 2002-2007, look familiar?) to the back with a glue stick to make double sided paper because I didn’t have any that was red and black. This card is great to make with double sided paper because you get to see both sides. For an awesome tutorial  (with pictures) on how to make this card check out Judy Rozema’s blog.

The large chess stamp is by art impressions, I stamped and heat embossed it with white AFTER I made the card. I used my crop a dial to add the eyelets. I’m not sure who made the bitty chess stamp, I got that one at a yard sale!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
