Pick A Pocket Card Techniques Class

In October I decided to celebrate pockets, so the theme for both my card techniques and scrap techniques classes will be Pick A Pocket. This is one of the cards we'll be making at the card techniques class.

This is a cool little double pocket card. This card fold was originally designed by Beate Johns, a super talented stamper and Stampin' Up! demonstrator. My only modification to her design was using the really rust base of the card to create an easel-like stand so that the card can be displayed standing up. As you can see, the card really does not involve much stamping, as most of the decoration comes from the use of the gorgeous Apple Cider double sided designer paper. But I did stamp the tab with a stamp from the Party Punch level 1 hostess set and the Thanks So Much sentiment from Sincere Salutations. The tab is attached to a bite-size chocolate bar which is inserted into the top pocket and a little note card on which you can write a message to the recipient is tucked into the lower pocket.

If you would like to make this card, along with a criss-cross card, a pocket gift-card holder and a single pocket card for $15.00 sing up for my card techniques class on October 13 or 15. Register and pay by tomorrow, Wednesday, October 3 and make 2 cards of each of the 4 designs. Hope to see you there!

I really like how you modified Beate's card. Pocket cards are so much fun to make and now you've given us a way to display them. Thanks.
