I've been making Holiday Pocket Cards and want to show you how! Take a look at my November 30th Facebook Live Video Replay for a complete demonstration. You'll see me make 2 pocket cards start to finish plus see a few others I made. Pocket cards are lots of fun to make and send. They also make great gift card holders just in time for the upcoming holidays. Or switch out the colors and stamp set to make pocket cards for birthdays and other occasions. These are so easy to make, you'll want to make several in one sitting. Watch, be inspired, and stamp on!
My Pocket Card Dimensions:
- Card base – 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" x 1 1/4" on long side. Fold in half then fold flap out.
- DSP – 5 1/4" x 2" and 5 1/4" x 1" for front of pocket card and 3/4" x 2" for pull tag. Have fun mixing & matching your DSP.
- Card stock layers for pull out – 4 1/2" x 3 3/4" and 4 1/4" x 3 1/2".
I made my pine trees using Triangle Dies in various sizes to die cut various patterns of Shaded Spruce DSP from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper. It's easy and FUN to mix and match the sizes and patterns of your pine trees to create festive pocket cards to spread Christmas Cheer.
I die cut the 2 layers of white poinsettias from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. The flower centers are from the Holiday Rhinestones which include 5 gorgeous colors of rhinestones. I used the holly leaf dies to cut the Green Foil Paper leaves.
My holly leaves turned out exactly the way I wanted them to – with lots of detail to add more interest. I first stamped the outline of each holly leaf with Shaded Spruce ink onto my Designer Series Paper, then stamped the inside color. I then die cut the holly leaves while also using the embossing dies that embossed the veins of each leaf. It sounds complicated, but it really was not.
