Boho Double Pocket Card

On my last post I shared a gift set I was giving to my Aunt for her birthday. Today I'm sharing the card I made to go with it. I knew I wanted to make her a cute Boho Bookmark, so I thought it was the perfect time to try one of those cute double pocket cards to put the bookmark in. There is a great tutorial on SCS for the double pocket card, and those were the instructions that I followed...it was way easier than I thought! One tip I learned is to really make sure of your final layout & complete all embellishments on your card front before adhering the pockets with the sticky strip! Don't ask how I found that out! lol


These are the what the inserts look like outside of the pockets:
Stamps: Boho Backgrounds, So Many Scallops & It's Your Birthday
Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou & Purely Pomegranate
Card stock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranate & Soft Sky DSP
Accessories: Seeing Spots Classy Brass Template (for piercing around circle), Pomegranate ribbon, Jumbo Pewter eyelets, Pewter Hodgepodge, Scallop, 1- 1/4" circle & Boho Blossoms punches, sticky rhinestone embellishments

I hope you all had a nice 4th of July yesterday! Ours was really nice. We enjoyed a beautiful day at the lake with family. My Aunt had a lovely birthday celebration and she loved this card and of course the stamps and scallop punch we gave her. Looks like another gorgeous day today...ENJOY!
