Tuesday Morning Sketches

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....

Image: Paper Pretties Digital Stamp
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!

This is darling Angela, what a great idea for a gift card in one pocket. Love the image you used, it is so sweet. All the patterns work so well together too. Not sure if I'm daring enough for this challenge, looks tough, may have to go check out the tutorial.

Angela, I love your project! I think the paper is just fabulous. I love the way you did the scallop on the tags. Just lovely.

Clever girl with your stipes, I used plaid paper so I didn't have to quite so careful :-)
Love your little sheep.
