The little things....

 

Today I decided to make a double pocket card. This card is very easy to make although you don't want to do what I did the first time. I like things neat and tidy and areas that can be sealed, stuck so there is no chance of them unfolding later on. Well I got a little carried away with where I should put the adhesive on the first one and ended up sticking the first pocket shut....LOL. Oh well, these things happen so I just pulled out another piece of Petals & Paisley Double-sided Designer Series Paper and started again, this time paying more attention to what areas I was applying adhesive to.

Here is the finished correct card with the pockets filled:

and here is the card & tags. I've left the centre of the larger one free so I can write something when I decide to send it on to someone.

These cards are a great way to use up some of that double-sided paper we sometimes hesitate to use.
