Tonight I have been working on pocket cards. I love these and the way they turned out! I am digging the Designer Series Paper. It is perfect for christmas!

These cards were fun ones to make. Nothing too tricky about these cards.

Cut a piece of cardstock just like you were cutting it for a card: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score it at 4 1/4" and at 1 1/4" from the edge. Fold on score lines.

Then using red sticky tape found on page 185 of the catalog, run a strip up each side of the card (run the tape up the inside of the short side after you have folded down the flap in front. Otherwise your tape will be showing). Red sticky tape is the best adhesive to use. It will give you a permanent hold.

Next cut designer paper to size and adhere to card. Cut inserts and embellish as desired.

I made 2 inserts for my cards. The white back layer pulls out and will house a photo, and the pullout with the snowflake tab will have a written message.

I hope you try this technique out. If you do, be sure to send me an email/picture with your finished product. I would love to see it!
