Pocket cards are super popular right now. They're quite simple to make. It's a piece of cardstock, folded and glued along the edges to make a pocket. In this case, I cut a 4 1/4"x 11" piece of Blushing Bride card stock and scored it at 5 1/2", just like I would a regular card. The difference is, I use the Detailed Floral thinlet to die cut the front. See that long skinny piece in between the two floral thinlets? That's used to cut the scalloped edge. Simply align it on the top of the thinlet before you run it through your Big Shot, and it cuts your edge.
Once it's cut out, I cut a piece of vellum at 4 1/8" x 3 1/4" and ran it through theBig Shot with the scalloped edge, and then glued it to the inside (or back side) of the die cut. This added bit of softness to the design and ensures that the card doesn't snag and tear the delicate design as you slide it in and out of the pocket. Add some glue around the edge and fold it up. Voila, a pocket card!
You can add the inside card by cutting it at 5" x 3 3/4". I stamped the top with the rose from the Floral Phrases stamp set and punched a whole in the top of it with my 1/8" circle punch. Finally, I threaded a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon through the top. Then, something wasn't quite right, so I rounded the top corners on the pocket and insert using my Project Life Corner Punch.
The Hubs and I are off to drive all the way to Boston tomorrow. I'll be teaching at a spring retreat on Saturday. I can't wait to meet and craft with everyone. I'll take lots of pictures to share with you next week when we return.
