Horizontal Pocket Card!

Hi Stampers! I have a new card for you today featuring a pocket to slide a 2nd piece into. This is called a "Horizontal Pocket Card" and was shared by Linda Gutierrez. Here is what the card looks like with the insert tucked inside the pocket:

And this is how it pulls out with you tug on the handle at the top:

Are you ready to give this a try? Here goes.....

Step 1:

Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score at 1 1/4" and again at 4 1/4". Fold as shown above. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round my four corners.

Step 2:

Add Sticky Strip to the two 4 1/4" edges as shown above:

Step 3:

Remove backing from Sticky Strip and press the card sides together to form your pocket.

You will need 2 pieces of Designer Paper. I used the Fresh Prints Designer Paper.
  • (1) 5 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  • (1) 5 1/4" x 1". Round two corners with the Envelope Punch Board
Glue both pieces. One to the card front under the flap and the other to the front of the flap.

Step 4:

Create insert as follows:
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/2" x 4". Round 2 corners on the 4 1/2" side
  • Real Red Cardstock: 4 1/4" x 3 3/4". Round 2 corners on the 4 1/4" side
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4" x 3 1/2". Round 2 corners on the 4" side
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 3/4" x 3 1/4". Round 2 corners on the 3 3/4" side
Step 5:

Stamp the sentiment from the Million & One stamp set using StazOn Jet Black Ink. Add a tab at the top by using one Curly Label Punch and Real Red Cardstock. Fold in half and glue to panel. Add a layer cut with the Petite Curly Label Punch and Designer Paper. Pierce a hole through the label and add a Glimmer Brad.

Step 6:

Stamp the sentiment from the Four You stamp set using Whisper White Cardstock and StazOn Jet Black Ink. Cut using the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. Add a Glimmer Brad at the end of the label and glue in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Tie a ribbon around the flap using Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon!

I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks to Linda for sending me the instructions!
