Double Pocket Card Ideas

Back with some ideas and tips on using the Double Pocket Card I shared in the previous post....

TIP: You can use the card as is or for added body you may choose to mount the finished card onto a piece of coordinating cardstock. If you do mount the double pocket card onto cardstock, cut the pattern paper 1/2" smaller on both the horizontal and vertical sides. WHY? By trimming the extra 1/2" off the sides your folded card once mounted on the cardstock will still fit into standard gift card envelopes!!

There are just so many things you can use this card for...

Card and Gift

9" x 12" - finished 4 1/2" x 6"

This double pocket card holds both an actual greeting card and a small gift...It has been mounted onto a piece of coordinating cardstock.

Photos & a Note

These cards are a great way to send a tag message along with a few photos to loved ones. Holds the photos securely and protects them in transit!

ATC & Info

7" x 10" - Finished 3 1/2" x 5"

This size of the double pocket card makes a great presentation folder for ATC's...perfect for special trades or possibly a "Technique ATC Swap" where you have to explain how each card was made. Use the smaller pocket for the ATC and the larger pocket for the supply list and technique directions!

Charm & ATC Holder

This double pocket card is great for trading ATC's too! You can tuck the ATC into the back pocket and add a neat little charm, note, treat, T-bag, etc. into the front pocket as an extra little bonus :)

NOTE: I didn't get a pic of the tiny double pocket card shown in the first photo...it started out 1" x 3" and ended up measuring 1/2" x 1 1/2"....I added a small charm in the back pocket and a mini note in the front pocket!

Remember ~ to create these cards

all you need to remember is....

Odd number + 3!

Very quick, very easy and oh so handy!!
