Double Pocket Card

Well here is the promised "how to" make the double pocket card.

Cut double sided DESIGNER SERIES PAPER 12x12 paper to 8 1/2" x 11"
The card at the top is made with the ADORABLE DOMESTIC GODDESS PAPER
Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper   #122355 $10.95

With your favorite side of the paper facing up and left corner fit into the corner of the TOTALLY AWESOME Simply Scoring Tool. Score along the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4".
Turn the paper so the 11" side is at the top edge of Scoring Tool. Score at 5 1/5".
Add the AMAZING Diagonal Plate into the Scoring Tool. Flip the paper over with the 8 1/2" side at the top of the Scoring Tool, and score diagonal at 4 1/2" mark.
 Turn the paper 190 degrees so the the other end of 8 1/2" side is at the top of the scoring plate and score diagonal at 6 1/2" again.
 Fold the right side of paper at the 4 1/4" score mark to the left side of paper.
Fold down the diagonal scored mark at the upper corner.

Fold the paper in half at the 5 1/5" score line.

 Fold the second corner down. Crease all fold lines well.
 Glue a bit in the center top edge of card to hold the two layers together. Glue down the folds. That is it to making the base of the double pocket card. Easy huh. Make a few on scrap paper till ya get the hang of it. I practice on 20 of them for my club swap cards.
 Sorry about the glare on this one, punch a strip of white card stock scrap using the GREAT SCALLOP PUNCH.
 Glue to the underside of a strip of scrap background paper and glue along lower edge of card. You can make two and place on the inside of card too.
 Punch a bunch of posies using coordinating card stock and background papers with the new BLOSSOM PUNCH.
 Assemble and use a GORGEOUS GLIMMER BRAD for flower center.

 That is it to making a great double pocket card. This idea is great for recipes, gift cards, poems, prayers, pictures even invites for celebrations.  Hope you are inspired to try one. If ya have any questions on the "how to" contact me.
