Diagonal Double Pocket Fun Fold Card

When my dear friend and downline, Anne, and I got together at her home to watch Stampin' Up!s virtual OnStage at Home convention, we planned to have a day of card making prior to the event starting. We agree to bring three cards each to teach the other. We had a big laugh when we both revealed the Double Pocket fun fold cards we brought.  

Upon closer inspection, hers is different than mine, but it mainly has to do with which way you fold the flaps and card base section. Don't forget to affix the flaps down and glue up the sides to keep the pocket cards in their pockets.

Decorate the card front however you would like. For this sample, the Scalloped Contour Dies were used along with a retired Sale-a-Bration stamp set called A Touch of Ink. Little flowers from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set were stamped in Balmy Blue ink and Rhinestones were added to the flower centers for some "bling."

On a piece of Basic White you can stamp the large hydrangea flower in Highland Heather ink and Old Olive ink, then die cut and attach with dimensionals to the inside front of the card. 
With the same size Basic White cardstock from yesterday's card, stamp the little flower collection on each pocket page for a fun touch!


You can use the same templates I shared in yesterday's post for cutting and folding. The difference is in the direction you fold to the front or to the back.
Template 1: 
The smaller upper left fold is the same folded to the inside. The larger lower right fold is folded towards the other side of the paper, NOT folded to the inside like yesterday.

Template 2:
Step 2 is the same with folding that section up. Step 3 is different instead of that piece becoming the card back it becomes the card front, so the pockets are hidden until the card is opened.

I think this Double Pocket Fun Fold is cool because now you have two ways to use your Designer Series Paper for making beautiful cards for any occasion!
