Hi Stampers. I have a pocket twist card for you today that is a bit on the advanced side. In my video below, I try my best to keep it simple, but it was just so fun, I had to give it a try!
When I first saw this pocket twist card, it was on a video by a fellow demonstrator – Dawn Griffith. The Halloween version was my first attempt, then I made the Christmas version for my video.
I thought it kind of looked like an ornament when it was folded together.
Here is a view of the card base before assembly. I’ve also got a diagram below that you can pin to Pinterest for later reference.
The measurements of the Designer Series Paper start out as rectangles and then two of them are cut diagonally before adhering to the card base.
The card pops open and can hold notes and gift cards in the pockets. You can see how it gets it’s name “pocket twist card”.
I found it challenging to get it folded correctly at first. But, by taking it one step at a time and not rushing, it came together great. Once it was together, it kind of falls back into place on future opening.
Here is a view of the inside with the sentiment card and a gift card.
I made two of the layered cards, one with my sentiment and one to write my message on.
It’s all held together with a belly band. The ornate frame label is adhered to the card base with dimensionals only on the bottom, so you can slide the belly band down and it rests on those dimensionals. Watch the video below and let me know what you think.
- Old Olive CS: 8-1/8″ x 8-1/4″ (card base) & 1/2″ x 11″ (belly band) & two pieces 2-1/4″ x 4″
- Basic white CS: two pieces 2″ x 3-3/4″
- Heartwarming Hugs DSP: two pieces 2-1/4″ x 3-7/8″ & one piece 2-1/4″ x 4″
