BSS MONDAY IDEA - A Double Pocket Card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is a double-pocket card.  Easy Peasy to make and
so much fun to decorate. Makes a 5 1/2x4 1/4 card

You can find a great tutorial HERE, which uses one sheet of
card stock to make.

I used one sheet of 12x12 paper and used the same pattern, except
the first corner fold leaves an inch border on both sides.
I needed to make the larger card to use this wonderful stamp.
I also folded it so that the front of the card was solid and
the pockets were inside.


This is the stamp I built the card around
You can click the first image for a slide show
with a larger view to see details.

The second pocket behind this tag holds a gift card,
or you can make a second tag or tuck some
other small goody in it.

This is surely a very nice way to give a gift card. The element of surprise with it in the second pocket. As always you did an amazing job. Enjoy the day. We are in the 50's this week and I'm hoping you are too.

I was wondering last week if 12x12 CS could be us d to make a pocket card! Thanks, Sue. The double pocket is even better with the larger paper! Your stamp image is wonderful, and I like your colors! Thanks for sharing your creative process, Sue! Hugs, de
