I am posting some of my Double-Pocket Cards mainly because I want to make a habit of blogging everyday........I will have to get the link to Enfys blog, for the instructions, so that you can try these yourself.....They are truly soooooo much fun to make......They make such great gifts. I taught so many people how to make these cards and they all had pleasant experiences making them.....

Tags made using Nestabilities---Don't you just love these things????

The pink embossing on the first card was made using vinyl blinds...Yep...the ones hanging at your window.....Who would have thought???????....They make great "embellies" (HeHe....)

I really enjoy making the little tags for the inside of the cards.....

To decorate the cards I used Rubons, nestabilities, ink pad, skittles (alternatives-Black) Stampabilities Spiritual Sentiment Stamp, transparencies, Cricut( the letter "L"), Doodle and swirls Clear stamp and of course double-sided paper.

This card was supposedly created following Enfy's instructions........(Well, sort of). During a weekend crop, two of the ladies, (Carol and Judy) some how managed to make their cards inside out...(Whereas the pocket was on the inside)....They thought it was wrong....I thought it was great.....We had a time trying to figure out what they did ....But here is the end result....

You did inspire me to make one of these cards...I am planning to make one for my Dad's birthday (which is today). I tracked down Enfy's tutorial and thought I would share the link:

Just thought I'd share with you the card that I made for my Dad...I did the double pocket card. It was easy and I like the look. Thanks so much for jump-starting my brain!

So THAT's what the nestabilities are for! They look really cute. I love how you include the flourishes so that they aren't too busy.

Everything on your blog is great! Hmmm what project are you going to think of next?

My SU demo always says "There's no mistakes in stamping." Just other opportunities to embellish. Doesn't look like a mistake at all. And of course they'll never be able to figure out how they did it - lol!
