Pocket Card with Tags

The Diagonal Double Pocket card is one of my favorite fancy fold cards.  It makes a very special presentation and the pockets are lovely for holding pictures, gift cards, and  tags.  The base of this card is made with double sided paper from Kaisercraft and the focal image is from Graphic 45.
Putting tags inside the pockets also gives you more surfaces to decorate - love it!  I used the Season's Greetings embossing folder from Provo Craft to create the background on this one and then added some Stickles and Maraschino baker's twine from The Twinery.  The sweet little greeting card is from Graphic 45.  You can add a gift card or photo to the reverse side of this tag if you would like:
The second tag also starts with an embossing folder from Provo Craft: Winter Borders.  A little distress ink brings out the details in the embossing.  I stamped some snowflakes with Versamark in the background before I added the card from Graphic 45.  The snowflake charm is from my stash.
When the tags go into the pockets, I make sure the snowflake dangles over the front of the card...adds the perfect touch don't you think?

If you would like to learn how to make the card, follow the steps in this tutorial.
