My project today is a pocket card designed for enclosing a newsletter or perhaps cash.
It measures 3 3/4" X 8 1/2". Starting with a sheet of 8.5 X 11" Kraft card stock, I scored the 11" side at 3 3/4" and again at 7 1/2". I trimmed off 3/4"of the remaining section to form the pocket; making it fold up from the bottom of the card and give plenty of room to add the enclosure. Staples were used to secure the sides of the pocket, but if I do this again, I will use 1/8th" scor-tape instead.
I love the sentiment on the inside
Here's the full view when the recipient opens the card
It is so fun and interesting to use the sketches from designers like Kristina Werner, who presented the tutorial for the project I have shown here. I am learning a lot! Thanks goodness I have access to the class after it ends in two weeks. I know I will refer to it again and again.
Well, laundry beckons! I hope you have a most pleasant evening and I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow!
