Tsunami Rose - Tutorial on a pocketcard

Hi everone,

Its Tuesday again, and time for me to do another tutorial for Tsunami Rose.

This time I have chosen to do an easier card, with a pocket inside....perfect if you are going to give someone for example a gift-card. :)

Take a cardstock - 12x4 - score at 4 and 8

Fold - Then cut away ½ inch on the right side
After that, Cut away a piece in an diagonal angle, as shown on picture

Chalk the edges and the score lines to get a Halloween-like look

Cut away a piece of the right flap - Then put some tape at the botton

Take 2 pieces of patterned paper in the size 3½x5½ inch - Chalk the edges

Fold and get the pocket taped down - Put a patterned paper on the left side and decorate if you want to

Add the patterned paper of your choice on the front of your card - Then put tape around the edges of the paper

Take off the protective paper from the tape and add lace around the edges so it will be like a frame

Decorate as you like - A tip is to put a big flower where the beginning meets the end of the lace and make kind of a lock

Keep decorating the front as much as you like - And there you have a card where you can put a gift-card inside

The spooky papers I have used comes from "Witches Brew" Printable Journal Kit.
Just click on the picture under this text and you will come to the shop right away.


Hope you liked my tutorial, and my card.

Take care and see you all soon again.

Hugs from Linda
