Last Club Project

I never made it back with the last club project from May! I owe my members an instruction sheet too for the Criss-Cross Card-I'll try to get that out this week!

Here are two versions of our last project, the Double Pocket Gift Card. I received a sample of this with a pattern in a recent swap-Thanks Richard!!! His sample used this same Designer Paper-Ginger Blossom, but these are my versions.



The paper coordinates with the Embrace Life set so we used that for the flowers. The DP is double sided, so when you complete the folds, the back area is the contrasting color from the outside. We used that same paper to stamp our flowers on and cut out. We curled the top flower (over a pencil, paint brush, paper piercer) to give it dimension. We did layer two flowers together also for dimension. We used a brad to put the flowers together and attached with a jumbo glue dot.

Here is a picture showing the 3 parts of the card. The gift card sits in the front pocket, the other card the back pocket so you can write a note to go along with the gift!

I'm not going to do a step by step here, but if you haven't seen this and need directions, email me and I'll see what I can put together. The pattern I used was done by Richard, and I don't want to share here without his permission. I can do my own, but haven't yet had time. I will say there is a similar one on SCS. I haven't studied those directions, but I believe one of the corner folds is done the opposite way, and my folders were "tighter" to make the pockets closer together and the back contrasting piece bigger.
