Here is another version of the Diagonal Double Pocket Card.
Most of my dearest friends and I are at the point where we don’t feel that we have to shop for each other for holiday gifts, whether they be for Christmas or Hannukah. But we do like to exchange gifts of things that we have made to commerate at this joyous time that we do, indeed, treasure and are thankful for our friendships. My friend, Janet, for example, has bene making us a Christmas tree ornament for as long as I can remember. She celebrates Hannukah, so I don’t reciprocate with a handmade ornament. However, I do like to make her something special.
As I mentioned yesterday, this year, I have been having lots of fun making diagonal double pocket cards with bookmarks for my friends. Janet is definitely a book lover, even volunteering at her local library.
Today’s card is made with card stock (Taken with Teal). You’ll see on the instructions for the card, there is a variation from the design I used yesterday. With card stock, that last fold creates just two too many layers of card stock for my taste. So this card is actually more like a traditional greeting card, with an inside for a greeting. There are still two diagonal pockets on the front, though!
I created some difference between the front and the back of the card stock by embossing small snowflakes (from the Level 3 Hostess set, Holiday Happenings Bundle, using VersaMark (102283) and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109132). I made the two bookmarks with Whisper White and Taken With Teal card stock, and finally affixed two small snowflakes, also made out of Whisper White and cut with the Sizzix Big Shot and two Sizzlits from the Snowflakes Set #2 (113449).
The stamped greeting is from the Heritage Holiday Stamp Set (111646).
