IT'S BACK! Pocket Card

First off - HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!! Hope everyone has an enjoyable and safe 4th of July!

Years ago back when I was coming up with a lot of original files in Design Studio I made a card that I titled "Pocket Card". I honestly couldn't come up with a better name for the card. I was limited in Design Studio with what I could do since you couldn't import images, no splitting and removing images, and some things just wouldn't weld together. But now with using Make The Cut life is much simpler. I was looking through some old files and came across the Pocket Card and thought I would try to remake it in MTC since I really did like this card. It didn't take long and things can be moved around a lot easier than back in the ol days.

Here is a screen shot of the file I made for the Pocket Card. I once again used the "texture" feature in MTC which I am totally loving but not loving having to go find textures to download and put in files *okie doesn't like time consuming work but thinks she is a glutton for punishment since she seems to have a lot of time consuming things she does*

The bottom base card doesn't need to be cut, it's just there to show how the flap has a cut for the front of the card, which will be easier to understand in the following photos.

One of the original Pocket Cards I made was a Halloween Card. I used several different cartridges to fancy up the card *okie wonders if fancy up is really a term but decides she likes it and will let it stay* and this card shows how versatile the card can be. You can do more than just put a decorative piece for the flap, such as using a cut on the flap as well. The file available has a "mat" for the flap too.

On the inside of the card I decorated one of the tags and left the other blank for a sentiment to be written on. It will also hold a gift card nicely. Even the little pockets can be decorated if you so choose.

The finished card when folded is the same size as a standard A2 card, 4.25" x 5.5" or at least close enough!
