BSS- Monday Challenge - Make a Double Pocket Card

Good Morning and welcome in for the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge.  Today's challenge is to make a Double Pocket Card.  I thought this would be great for the holidays, because the first pocket could be used to hold a gift card.  There is a great tutorial at (
This card is made from one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.  It has a couple of simple folds and one cut.  Then you just fold it together, glue a couple of places and decorate.  You can even change up the folds a bit and get a card that has a front panel and opens like a regular card to two pockets inside.

I have used a new Snowy Magnolia stamp.  The paper is by Basic Gray, Figgy Pudding collection.  The snowflakes are a die cut.  The sentiment on the tag is Inkadinkado.  The sentiment on the edge of the pocket is Northwoods.  The border punch is Martha. I ran the tag through a cuddle bug snowflake folder and added a length of net with glitter I purchased at JoAnn's on the tag.  I glittered the edge of the tag and added rhinestones to the snowflakes.  Hope you have time to make one of these cards, they are really nice and just a little different.  There is no limit as to what you could tuck in the pockets.  Have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until tomorrow.....................

It is a great idea for a gift card & tag combo...just wonderful.
Thanks for sharing it.
I will have to try to make my way out to Buffalo Stamps & Stuff whenever you are there so I can meet the lovely face behind this amazing talent.

Figgy pudding? How did this BG collection escape me??? This is such a sweet colour combination for this precious little snowieman, love the big flake that (s)he's holding. Stinkin' Magnolia, when they are just pictures, they are easier to resist, and then you see something like this perfect creation from Sue and the "NEED" sensation takes over!! Love that puddle of glitter at the basin of the snowperson!! This card type would be great for those too fab to cover papers, thanks for the ideas Sue!!
Take care,
