Pocket Cards

At our last team meeting, our upline, Amy Taylor, showed us how to make these cool pocket cards... this first one was the one Amy made:

It has a pocket on the outside, and another one on the inside - perfect for tucking in a hand-written note, a photograph or two, or even a bookmark like in Amy's!  Here are a couple of my own versions - what's so cool about these is that every one looks different depending on which sheet of DSP you use!

Yes, this particular DSP is retired, but it's a fantastic way to use up what you have left! Please ignore the fact that the small text in the center of the card is upside-down on the front... it's right-side-up on the inside (shown below):

...and how many of us still have a ton of this Sale-a-Bration DSP laying around?! Make pocket cards with it!

Thanks, Amy, for the inspiration!

PS:  For all of those who have asked me for instructions, I asked Amy where she got the idea (I like to credit the original source when possible), and it came straight from one of Stampin' Up!'s finest, Patty Bennett.  Here is the link where she has created a wonderful tutorial on this double pocket card.  It's super simple to do - I hope you try it!
