Double Pocket Cards with Tags

If you've been following along with my posts you'll know that this is another instalment from my 'Totally Tags' Demo.

I re-visited the double pocket card fold but modified it slightly to suit our Australian Metric Measurements as well as wandering slightly from the original design to create a couple of extra ideas you might like to try.

Here's a link to the first one I made using Stampin' Up! products -

Here's a link to the tutorial on You Tube -

If you want to use Metric measurements, just follow the instructions on the video using an A4 size piece of patterned paper.


Here's my first example for you today.  It uses the gorgeous 12x12, 6x6 patterned papers and die cuts from Kaiser Crafts Miss Match Collection.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and Pearls from SU.

I mounted the double pocket onto the front of a Kraft card.

........................................

The second example shows you how you can make a card that opens up.  All you need to do is simply miss out the second last step on the video.  You don't get an alternating pattern with this slight modification but it is another alternative to consider, especially if you make the card out of card stock instead of patterned paper.

I have used 3 different patterned papers from Kaiser Crafts Hey Birdie Collection.

Tags from 'Hotfoot' patterned paper

Lastly, this third example is made from square patterned paper (Graphic 45).  Obviously you don't fold the first corner edge all the way to the score line.

 This example has punched edges in matching patterned paper from the same 8x8 pad.

The tags were made from the Cuttlebug Butterfly Die.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing a few different ways to use the Double Pocket Card Fold.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :) Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest. For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench. Summer Strawberries   This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges - JAI #318 - "Just Add S"    S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer! Thanks, JAI!   and ...  JUGs #350 - Word Week   Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -   Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -   Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the ori

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card in the Dynamic Duo of Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink 1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card. This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine . 2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards. 3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above. 4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock). 5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the
