Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - Pocket Cards

Today I'm hopping with the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop.  The theme for this hop is "Pocket Cards".  I created this fun origami fold double pocket card using the products in the Flowering Zinnia Suite - Online Exclusives from Stampin' Up!  So easy and no adhesive needed!

Isn't this pretty and a perfect way to send someone a little something in a card!


  1. Cut Designer Series Paper 8 1/2" x 11" and score in half in both directions.  Gently burnish scorelines using Bone Folder
  2. Fold out to full size.
  3. Fold top left corner in towards middle aligning with centre scoreline
  4. Fold bottom right corner in towards middle aligning with centre scoreline
  5. Fold bottom up to top on middle scoreline
  6. Fold in half on lengthwise scoreline to form card base.
  7. Cut 2 pieces of Basic White cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4"
  8. Emboss both using Zinnia Embossing Folder
  9. For the front of the card, measure up 1 1/4" from bottom on right side of embossed card stock 
  10. Cut from that mark to the top left corner on the diagonal
  11. Adhere the piece to the bottom of the pocket
  12. Cut Basic White cardstock 1" x 3 1/4"
  13. Stamp sentiment using Gorgeous Grape ink
  14. Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock 1 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  15. Adhere sentiment to Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Dimensionals
  16. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  17. Stamp flower on Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape Ink
  18. Colour with Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends
  19. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  20. Adhere Shiny Sequins
  21. Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  22. Trim second piece of embossed cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5"
  23. Adhere to Gorgeous Grape cardstock
  24. Tuck into inside pocket
