Hello and welcome to my YouTube Channel and blog; today I am going to teach you a technique I learned from Ronda Wade. I’m going to show you how to create a Pocket card using designer series paper. This is a great way to use up designer series paper and gives you a reason to purchase more. If you used a whole pack of designer series paper to make these cards you would get 36 cards from one pack. Here’s a look at today’s card.
Fold it Up!:
Like I said before this is a super easy card. You can even do it without the baking and just close it with the ribbon. You could also easily make this into a gift card holder.
The pocket itself is actually made by the designer series paper (which is cut at 4 x 10 1/2), and just two folds as you can see in the video. You will fold it in half and then fold the front piece at the top down about 2″ or so. Attach this to the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base. So with that measurement that means you get four bases from one sheet of cardstock. The inside panel is cut at (3 3/4 x 5) in Rich Razzleberry and the whisper white (3 1/2 x 4 3/4) stamped piece goes on top. The panels on the outside are in Rich Razzleberry (2 1/2 x 4) and Whisper White (2 1/4 x 3 3/4); and applied with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
So once you have it all together you can pull the inside out like so.
Pretty cool huh! I just think it’s the neatest thing that you can get 36 of these cards from one pack of Designer Series Paper.
