MULTI-FLAP CARD WITH POCKET
Wow! My first ever blog hop! How exciting! I hope you enjoyed seeing Jo’s Tri-fold (Z-shape) card and are keen to see another fancy fold. I decided to try something new, it’s called a Multi-flap card with pocket and I LOVE IT!
I think the only problem with it is that it’s a bit hard to photograph. But anyway this is the front of the card.
Then when you undo the beautiful satin bow and open the front flaps, this is what you see.
Then it opens upwards to reveal this.

I saw a tutorial for this fold here and I loved the look of it and wanted to give it a try. I made a card (which I will show you later on this week) following these directions but I found that it used 12”x12”cardstock and it was too big to fit in the Stampin Up square envelopes. So I changed it a little to make this one slightly smaller.
Here are my new dimensions:
Cut card 25 x 20 cm.
Score at 12.5 cm on both the short and long sides.
Cut 26.5cm x 7 cm card.
Score at 4, 4.5, 17 and 17.5 cm
I cut the dsp at these sizes:
26.5 x 6.5 cm
(3x) 12 x 12 cm
6.5 x 8.75 cm.
6.5 x 3.5 cm
12 x 7 cm
All other instructions are the same as given by Maria in the tutorial.
Inside the little pocket is a plain card to write your message. I also put a dot of tombow mono multi on the back of a gift card, let it dry and then stuck it onto the back of this plain card. A great way to send a gift card to someone special.
Stamps : Occasional greetings, because I care, vintage vogue
Card : neutrals dsp stack, vanilla,espresso, crumbcake

Other : big shot, beautiful wings, scallop square, antique brad, neutral brad, pearls, vanilla satin ribbon, sticky strip
Thanks for looking at my card and I hope you’ll give the multi-flap card with pocket a try.
