Two Pocket Card Folder & Pattern

20210318_144509

My ALL-TIME favorite way to package handmade cards as a gift, is this quick and easy TWO-POCKET CARD FOLDER! Here is my pattern that uses one full sheet of card stock. The Folder holds four standard cards or four note cards.

20210318_144609

Embellish the front of the Folder as much or as little as you like.  The main thing, REPEAT the colors and images used on the cards inside for a professional look.

 

20210318_144327

Here are the four standard cards and envelopes in this Folder. The same crisp, snappy True Love Designer Paper #154281 was used on this entire project.  I used the Medium Daisy Punch #149517 and used the small daisy-like print on each card. The accent is Silver Foil Paper #132178 and the little heart from the Dog Builder Punch #148543. The cards are fast and simple. Pick your favorite designer series paper and try this!

Hydrangea Hill Suite and Envelope VIDEO

20210222_094340
GARDENING TIP: you can change the color of your garden Hydrangeas from pink to BLUE by adding SOIL ACIDIFER, found in your garden center near the fertilizers! It's MAGIC!!

The Hydrangea Hill Suite #155985 is ELEGANT and let's you create any color blossoms you desire on card stock! These are "Z" fold cards cut 4-1/4 X 11" then scrored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". VERY EASY! I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.

 

20210222_094431

I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.

 

20210222_094209

I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.

 

20210222_094455

Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:
