two pockets, two videos



this is the how-to for the pocket cards that i posted yesterday. you can make one of these cards lickety-split using just one piece of cardstock (double-sided works best), and two pieces of coordinating paper. then it's time for some decorating fun.....the sky's the limit!
watch here or watch at you tube




and here's a quick way to decorate a tag that you can tuck into your card pockets. i first saw this distressing technique demonstrated by claudine hellmuth using the ranger distress inks and the blending tool.....tons of fun, and instant art gratification!!

i hope you enjoy making these.....and remember, a little chocolate bar fits nicely in those pockets, too!!

Hi Sweetie! I LOVE your card, tag AND the video showing us how! I made some cards, but mine are just so pathetic next to yours! ;D Thank you for these really great videos, and all the really cool tips too! (distress inks, corner chomp, monster hole punch..I had no idea!) If you keep making these fun videos, I may just have to switch from felt to paper! Hugs, xoxo Paulette ;D

I'm a collage, calligraphy and watercolorist and never know much about stamping. Thanks for the great info on using Distress Inks!! And love the little holder- maybe good for some ATC's in a smaller size!!
