1. Large Enough to Read Easily
2. Pretty and Functional
While trolling YouTube looking for ideas, I remembered seeing a tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers for a pocket type card - The Criss Cross Card. And this is what I came up with:
I made my own pattern paper using one of my all time favorite stamp sets by Unity Stamp Co in four different complimenting colors. All the color of the papers that I choose to use were matched with those colors. The one thing that I did do differently was that because I did not want to glue the edges together to make the pocket, I made gussets out of paper and put those on either side of the pocket so that the card could slide in and out nicely. I did not have to go out and purchase anything special - score for me AND all 5 of these guys were put together in about 3 hours or so.
I hope you enjoyed!
