Hello, my friends! A very happy Tuesday to you! I have a super fun card to share with you today – another website sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps! This one is a tag card with diagonal double pockets! My inspiration came from… you guessed it… another Splitcoast Stampers newsletter outlining this tutorial HERE. You know me – I’m a total fun fold geek, always on the look-out for another one to try! I used the adorable Santa Koala and Mrs Claus clear stamp set for the tags on this card.
I used some pretty double-sided Christmas paper from my stash to create the card base, and added a red glitter die cut sentiment to the front. I cut two tags from ivory cardstock and embellished them with more of the papers from the same Christmas paper pack. I stamped the images on white cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them all. The coordinating dies weren’t available yet when I was gifted this stamp set, but they are now! I adhered the stamped and cut images to the tags, stamped a sentiment at the bottom of each tag and added some green crafter’s cord.
This card does not open, so I cut a panel for the back, embellished it with a coordinating paper and a thin strip of red cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in black ink. I had one leftover stamped and cut element so I adhered it to the panel and layered the panel on red cardstock.
And one more peek… so happy with how this turned out! These koalas are so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! ;)
