Two Pocket Card by Kerrie Gurney

Hi! Kerrie here with a clever two pocket card tutorial for you today. I love creating this card for special occasions. You can get everyone to sign the tags or you can replace one of the tags with a gift card. It is super easy to create this card with just a single sheet of  8.5" x 11 3/4" (A4 for us Aussies) cardstock.

Fold the cardstock in half long side.

Undo and fold in half short side.

Unfold and cut the from the side into the middle fold line.

Fold the bottom right corner up to the center fold line.

Fold the top left corner down approx 1" to 1.5" from center fold line.

Fold the left top side over to the right.

Fold the whole bottom half up.

Fold the left side to the back. This gives you your pockets...easy! :)

Place the card, excluding the back flap, into the Extra Loren Embossing Folder.


Sand the front of the card using the Sanding Block to bring out the core color of the cardstock.

Place Double-Sided Tape as shown, peel off the protective backing and press to adhere.

Die-cut 1 Fantasia Dazzling Doily Die. Trim 1/3 off and use the bigger half on the front of the card.

Cut 1 tag to fit a 5 1/4" x 2 1/2" pocket and 1 tag to fit a 5 3/4" x 3" pocket. Cut pennants from patterned paper and die-cut a label using the Victorian Rectangle Nesting Die. Embellish the card with flowers, chipboard butterflies and Self Adhesive Pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! Happy creating!
