I'm in the process of preparing for next month's Stamp Camp and was playing with a couple of different card folds. I pulled this one out of the archives and updated it a bit with some current designer series paper. This is a double pocket fold, but different than the one I did in December (seen here - scroll down to Dec 17th). Today's card actually opens like a traditional card whereas the previous pocket card had both pockets on the front and did not open. I don't have anything in the front pocket in the sample only because I enjoy the contrast of the designer paper. As you will see in the next photo, I did put an insert in the pocket inside.
I have two jumbo brads positioned approximately 1" from the bottom for ribbon to tie it shut. These really aren't necessary because the card stays shut on it's own, but I added it, well...just because I could.
I have been meaning to jump on the You Tube bandwagon and get videos onto my blog like so many others have done, but I just haven't taken the time to master my new video camera yet. My hope is to have a video sooner rather than later. It will make tutorials SO much easier to show than by picture. But, until then, pictures will have to do. Below are instructions on how to re-create this double pocket card:
Fold bottom edge to the top edge (no adhesive). To complete the card, fold the left side to the right.
Have fun with this. Let me know how yours turns out!
