If you are my family, STOP READING NOW! This might just be for you.
If you're anybody else, welcome to my blog post today!
The Frugal Crafter, Lindsay, had a tutorial on her blog for making a double pocket card. I'd seen them before and liked them but I'm a visual learner so watching someone is easier for me then written instructions. So THANKS Lindsay! I appreciate you doing the video tutorial so I could give this card a try.
I started with double sided paper as she suggested. I don't think I folded it right though because I actually ended up with three pockets. One on the left side that I don't think should have been there but I like it! I can stick a personal message in there now!
I also loved her suggestion of seed packets in the front pocket. My sister who will be getting this card is an avid gardener so that was perfect! Really Lindsay, you helped me a ton with this card!!!So here are the pics:
So here it is unassembled. You can see the two front pockets and as I said the left side has a third pocket LOL. The DP was from Michael's but it didn't have a brand on it so I'm assuming it's their brand. I've added a flower from my stash, don't know the brand of that either (2 strikes!) The ribbon and the leaves came from the Dollar Tree. The Rose Chippie is from Michael's and I used Viva Pink Glimmer Mist and then Chandelier Glimmer Glam over that. It looks orange in the picture but it really is pink. For the book mark I took a plain white Recollections bookmark, sprayed it with Cornflower Daze Glimmer Mist and then sprayed the Viva Pink Glimmer mist over that to get a color close to the blue in the paper. Then I attached it to a scrap from the main DP. The stamp is from Stampin' Up and I used Craftsmart white pigment ink. I also attached some Michael's flat backed purple pearls and inserted a pin I received in a swap.
Here's a picture of it assembled...
I'm using another piece of this scrap from this DP in tomorrows project. I really love the color and pattern.
