Here's my sample:The Rudolph tag goes in the top pocket and the second pocket can be used for a Gift card.
So, today's challenge is to try making a double pocket card. I'd love to have you share your creation here with Mr. Linky. If you upload to SCS please use the codeword EjoyVC8.
Isn't the Specialty Designer Series paper (Christmas Cocoa from Holiday Mini) great!!! This card really shows it off!
One thing I want to highlight about this card: Notice the layered punches. You can do so many things by mixing and matching and layering punches! I also used the swirls from the Elegant Thank You stamp set, but put the NOEL saying overtop. VERSATILITY!!!

1. Punched corners: Here I used the ticket corner punch, but there are other punches you can use to make a great look.
2. Inked edges: Simply run the edge of the cardstock directly against the ink pad. You can experiment with the angles and how much ink you use. You can also do it with more than one color ink pad. I sometimes use white first, then a darker color. This technique adds a fun look to your edge.
3. Silver poppin pastels: Here's my version of poppin pastels. I used Encore Silver ink. I then applied pastel to part of the image. I left the antlers silver for this image. This is a fun technique and kind of makes Rudolph look fuzzy.

Here's some of the cards I made for a local store (ATC size: 3-1/2 x 2-1/2). She wanted them to go with her flowers. All these ATC's would probably easily be layered onto a card and be useful that way too.
What do you think? Which is your favorite? I used a lot of cutting out and paper piecing. All Stampin' Up supplies!
This card front is 4x5, which she didn't want, and I'm going to layer it onto a regular size card! I used rock-n-roll technique on the flowers. There's a pierced edge and I used the scallop edge punch. I just love these colors together!

For bonus points you can use last week's sketch EjoyVC6. After 3 tries I finally drew a sketch that I could upload properly!
