Good morning! It's time for another challenge from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. This week it's actually a folding technique, the diagonol double pocket card. You can find a tutorial here on SCS. Our sponsor is Paper Pretties, who just had a grand reopening sale and released a bunch of new sets last week.
I was really surprised at how easy it was to make the card. I did use a piece of typing paper for my first try.... I found that it was a bit harder to use DP, since it was a bit thicker. You also need to be a bit more careful if using a pattern like stripes. Mine is the first version shown on the tutorial; when I tried to make the second version (which opens up), I didn't have as much luck. I will have to sit down and try it again....

Paper: PTI Lemon Tart and Dark Chocolate, Heidi Grace Designs DP
Embellies: PTI Lemon Tart Satin Ribbon, Glitteries Lemon Glitter
Extras: Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, DMC Floss, Crop-A-Dile II
This was a fun card to make, and the folding went quickly! I think it would be fun to include a gift card in one of the pockets too....
Hop on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to view the DT's samples; hopefully you can play along!
Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!
