Time for another fab DT Thursday tutorial from Sandiebella!
Double Pocket Card Tutorial
Fold and burnish all the scorelines
The side of the paper facing upwards will be the inside, shown behind the pockets/tags, so now is a good time to decide on which side you want.
On the left side, cut across the horizontal scoreline, until you meet the vertical scoreline.
Fold down the top left corner to about 2″ away from the centre scoreline.
Fold up the bottom right corner and bring it to both scorelines. Burnish with a bone folder.
Fold the top left square over onto the right side.
Fold up the bottom half.
Cut off the final square, on the left, and set it aside for later.
Fold down the top pocket, open up the triangle, apply glue or DS tape to the inside left and then fold back in the triangle to adhere them together.
Apply glue or DS tape to the left side again and fold it back up to make the pocket.
Apply glue or DS tape to the open sections at the top and side
Cut a piece of card measuring 11.5″ x 5.75″. Fold in half to make a 5.75″ card base.
Cut a piece of white card measuring 5 5/8″ x 5 5/8″ adhere the pocket panel to it to make the card front.
Adhere the card front to the base.
Punch/cut two border strips
Apply a thin line of wet glue along the edge of one pocket and adhere one of the border strips, ensuring it protrudes over each end.
Cut the ends with a scissors.
Repeat for the other pocket.
Stamp Cakeabella onto white card and colour using your preferred medium.
Cut out using an oval/circle die.
Cut a second oval/circle and adhere the image to it.
Cut 2 large tags from white card and another from the square of patterned paper you set aside.
Cut the patterned paper tag, diagonally.
Apply wet glue or narrow DS tape to the 2 outer edges of the bottom section of the tag and adhere to the white tag to make a pocket.
You can use the pocket for a gift card, or cash, etc
Adhere the other half of the paper tag to the other white card tag.
Apply 3D foam tape the back of the image, ensuring it won’t go over onto the pockets.
Stick the image down. Thread twine through the tags and insert them into the pockets.
Add the sentiment and any embellishments desired.
When the card is done, apply some Star Dust stickles to the cakes and leave to dry.
