Who says a card has to open up? With some creative cutting, this card becomes a pocket with a writing panel that can be slipped in and out! I chose Rich Razzleberry as my “Adios” color for this project.
Start with a card base cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side. Burnish well. Open the card insert into your Stampin’ Trimmer with the score running horizontally. Slide the edge of the card to 3 1/2″ – cut down to the score line. Using the trimmer or your snips, remove the smaller panel.
Use Tear & Tape along the bottom and outer edge of your card front; close the card up. I decorated the front using a piece of Regals Designer Series Paper. This will form a pocket for your writing panel (which will be a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the sentiment and patterns in Rich Razzleberry ink.
Using the Very Best Trio punch, notch out the top of the card base and writing panel. Then add a ribbon hole to the top of the writing panel. Take 7″ lengths of both Black & White Gingham and Whisper White Crinkled Seam ribbon. Color in the Black & White Gingham ribbon using a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. Thread both pieces through the ribbon hole and tie with a small piece of white Baker’s Twine.
I have never made a pocket card before – I think I’m going to make more….
