Double Pocket Card

Here is another really cool card technique. This is called a double pocket card.  I designed this one using Close To My Heart’s Whoo’s Your Valentines stamp set.  I used several of the stamps from the set to random stamp the base using blush, hollyhock and ruby.

Whoo's your Valenitne 5 - Version 2

You start with an 8 1/2″ by 11″ base. Score the 8 1/2″ side at 4 1/4″ and the 11″ side at 5 1/2″.  On the left side cut the score line to the middle.  Fold the top left corner down about 1 1/2″ from the score line. This top piece will then get folder to the right.  The bottom right corner is folded to the score line.

Then fold the lower left side over to the right and fold to the score line as shown.

The last step is to fold the lower half up to top half as shown.  Glue along seems only so that you have two pockets.

I really like this card style as it was so easy and there are so many possibilities.

Sympathy Cards

It seems like lately I have unfortunately been needing to send a lot of sympathy cards.   This is always a hard time when a friend looses a love one whether it is for a human or a companion animal.  Here are a couple of cards I designed.

In this card I used CTMH A Blossom stamp set, sweet leaf card stock, lagoon card stock, dotty for you paper and sweet leaf and lagoon ink.

For these two cards I used some scraps along with CTMH colonial card stock, blush ink, indian corn blue ink and 4 my friends stamp set.
