Fun with Hampton and Scor-Pal / Tutorial

Diagonal Double Pocket Card

Other Products Used: KaiserCraft Magnolia Paper Collection, Spellbinders Dies, Seam Binding Ribbon and Card Stock

I love fancy fold cards and this one is so easy but really is stunning.  I found the original tutorial on splitcoaststampers where you can also view a variation on this technique.

Step One: Cut designer paper 8 1/2 x 11.  Be sure you paper has pretty designs on both sides as they will show. 

Step Two: Score and fold your paper on the long way at 4 1/4

Step 3: Rotate your paper and score and fold at the 5 1/2 mark

Step Four: Unfold paper and cut from the left middle score line into the center,stopping at the intersection/ horizontal score line. 

Step Five:  Fold the bottom right corner up into a triangle meeting the center score line. 

Step Six: Have your piece lined up on your Scor-Pal and fold the top left corner down at the 3 1/4 mark.  This will be one inch in from the center score line. 

Step Seven:  Fold your top right quarter over

Step Eight: Fold your bottom left quarter over too. 

Step Nine: Fold your bottom corner over the top of your already folded corner on the bottom. 

Step Ten: Open back up your top flap and apply Scor-Tape to the edge and also apply Scor-Tape to the edges of the bottom flap and adhere down to make your pockets.  

Finish your card and add tags to the pockets
