4/14 Double Pocket Card with Tags


This is a Double Pocket card and the directions to make it are HERE. Judy, who has a blog called Joy In a Jar, made step by step tutorial to explain how to create a double pocket card. What a great job she did - thanks, Judy!!

The fun thing about pocket cards is that you can put tags in the pockets that can later be used as bookmarks or gift tags. The picture below shows the tags I created for this pocket card. The circle tag was made by cutting two circles with the Coluzzle. Then, I used my Stampin' Up corner rounder to make the scallops all the way around the outside circle. (Be sure to remove the corner guide from your punch first.)

Did you notice how the flower tag is grounded? I stamped the flower first, then I noticed that it looked sort of "floaty" and that wasn't exactly very cool looking. Once I added the smallest dab of torn paper to the bottom edge, the whole tag just came to life. It's amazing what the smallest detail will do to accentuate your art.

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamps: Live Your Dream, Priceless
Paper: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea Designer Paper
Ink: Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Garden Green Marker (for the flower stem), Chocolate Chip Marker (for the flower centers), Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches, Ticket Corner Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, Corner Rounder, Groovy Guava DS Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Poly Twill Ribbon, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Styled Silver Hardware, Stapler to attach ribbon to round tag
