Club Project #1 - Double Pocket Card & Bookmarks

This was the first project we made at last night's club.  It is a twist on the double pocket card that I posted here.  The original double pocket card uses a piece of dsp/patterned paper and involves various folds (see this video for general guidance...thanks to Patty B as she came up with the original idea over a year ago I believe).   I came up with this version because I wanted two different patterns of paper visible and I wanted the cover of the card to not be as bulky as it ends up being in the original, so what did we do?
- cut a piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score it at 4 1/4...that's right just a standard card base
- cut two pieces of dsp at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (I used the Fresh Prints dsp stack in the Occasions Catalog)
- pull out your simply scored with the diagonal board and score the piece of dsp you want to be in front at 0 (that's right, 0, on the diagonal)....fold from your score line back to create the pocket (I trimmed this one with some ruffled trim in baked brown sugar)
- repeat this sep on your second piece of dsp, but this time score it at 1" on the diagonal...and folk in as well
- the 2 pieces of dsp get attached to the card by gluing around the edges (that is, each edge except for the diagonal one or else you will not have a pocket;)
- the bookmarks that sit in the pockets are just a hair under 2" wide and are 5" long...and then I used the new scalloped angle punch to create the topper...they are then embossed (one with argyle and the other with dots) and decorated.

The stamp set used to decorate the card and bookmarks is the Perfect Pennants the sentiments!  We also used the coordinating banner framelits on the bookmarks.  The little friend flag attached to the you & I on the front comes from the banner stamp set and punch in the SAB flyer (each is free with a $60 purchase).
