Dragonfly Pocket Card

Hello Friends!

Today's project is an oldie-but-a-goodie and a favorite fold of mine. This is called a pocket card. It's made by simply marking the card front on both outer edges at 2". Make another pencil mark at the bottom center of the card. Then, just score a straight line between the 2" mark on the left to the center mark on the bottom. Repeat that score from the 2" mark on the right to the center mark on the bottom. Fold the outer corners up a to meet each other at the center, and add some foam mounting tape to hold it closed. You've created a little pocket! I added some pre-purchased embossed white paper on top of the triangle.

I added some glityz shred to mine to give it an airy look since my small dragonflies from the Michael Strong Mini Wings set needed a place to nest. I stamped these little critters in VersaMark ink and embossed them with Verdigris embossing powder. It was easy to do so many because there was no cutting required. The mini dragonfly has a coordinating Mini Wings Die, so I die cut them in seconds flat. Easy!

The large dragonly was created the same way. The stamp can be purchased HERE. I added some small beads to give it some interest. The white cardstock layers' corners were pierced with a template.

Thanks for stopping by today!
