Pocket fold card ~ note or gift card holder tutorial.

Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing a way to make a pocket card, folded for use as a note holder or as a gift card holder.

Simple folds can make unique cards, like this pocket card.

Here are helpful tips for making this pocket card.  To begin, pre-cut and score the card base.
Cut cardstock to 4 1/4" x 11"
Score at 5 1/2" and 9"
Next, add tacky adhesive like Wonder Tape or Score Tape to the inside fold at the edges and also to the outer flap, to fasten them down.  Also, leave room for a trimmed note panel to fit inside.  Next, stamp and trim the sentiment script background piece and trim a frame layer from patterned paper.  Then, stamp the with love sentiment over the script panel.  Next, trim a note panel to fit inside the pocket.  Next, use repeat stamping on the note panel to add the pink flowers and green sprigs, for a top note border.  Finally, layer the pocket card base and accent with twine to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
