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.

Whoo's your Valenitne 7 - Version 2

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

Whoo's your Valenitne 9 - Version 2

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. I wanted the cards I designed for those that have lost loved ones to be subtle and delicate enough to be sent with a sympathy gift (visit here for a place to find a good sympathy gift). 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.
