Directions for Tri-Fold Pocket Card

Vintage Vogue front

I was asked for directions to the card I posted today.  I originally posted this card last year and did not post the directions so I quickly took some pictures today to show how to put the front part of the card together.  It is called a Tri-Fold Pocket card.  As I mentioned in my earlier post, this product uses retired product such as the stamp set, Vintage Vogue, which can now be found in the Clearance Rack (many new items were added TODAY).  The scallop square base has also retired but the scallop square from the Squares Collection Framelits would be a great substitution! Here are the steps for the piece that goes on top of the base.

Use a 4×12 piece of Designer Series Paper. Score it at 4 inches on both ends.

Fold on the score lines. Take the top left corner and bring it down to the opposite corner using the score line as your guide.

Do the same thing to the opposite side but bring the lower right hand corner up to the opposite corner again using the score line as your guide. Use snail to adhere these pieces that you just folded.

Add sticky strip as shown in the picture and fold this piece over to the center to create your pocket. (Please note that my pocket is on the opposite side in the directions.  I hope this isn’t too confusing).

Two inside pieces that can be used to write a personal note:

 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 (purple)

 3 x 3 (Whisper White)

On the outside, my pieces are

2 x 3 (purple)

1  3/4  x  2  3/4 (Whisper White)

When adhering the pieces for the outside, be sure to only put adhesive on half of the outer square so that you will be able to open your card! I hope this helps!  If you would like to see some of the new items added to the Clearance Rack, you can visit my ONLINE STORE.
