With you 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” cardstock, score in the middle, (4 1/4”) long way, 8 1/2”.

On your trimmer, align the score point, angled to the bottom end of your card stock and cut off that piece, leaving a 5 1/2” x 4 1/3” x 7” triangle.

Fold on the scoring line to form your card, place the triangle piece over your card to make it form into a V shape pocket. You can place the triangle inside of the card or outisde of the card at your own option. Now you are ready to stamp!

Now that you’ve decided which part of yoru card will be made, you can start stamping your favorite design on the front of both triangle shapes.

Using your double stick tape, place your 4” x 5” background cardstock in the center of your card.

To create the pocket card, you will use your foam tape to align the bottom of your card and the open side of your card. Place your loose piece of the triangle to match the V shape front or you can fold over the flap side of your card and then add double stick tape on the bottom of your loose triangle and seat it over your card so that the V shape is shown on your front facing card. There you will create your pocket for your card.

Now embellish your tag with a sentiment and you have completed your card.
