Today's project is a 2 pocket card and gift card holder.  I'm also including a photo tutorial - whoohoo!  Working on some videos tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes - lol!

Here's the project:
I used the new Orchard Harvest DSP from the Holiday Mini.  

In one pocket, you can place a note card and then in the other, you can put a gift card. The inside Island Indigo card stock is cut at 3-1/2" x 2-3/4".  The Very Vanilla card stock is cut at 3-1/4" x 2-1/2"

Step 1 - Cut an 8" x 8" piece of Designer Series Paper or card stock.  You will place it wrong side up on your Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  Score on the following lines (rotating to the left for each side):
     Side 1 - Score at 0, 1-1/4", 6-1/8"
     Side 2 - Score at 2-7/8"
     Side 3 - Score at 1-1/4", 6-1/8"
     Side 4 - Score at 2-1/2"

Placing the paper with points pointing toward you and the 3 center score marks pointing across, fold in the outside score lines as shown above.  

Bring the top down towards you and fold in half, creasing well. 

Fold back on the other 2 score lines to make an accordion fold in the middle and crease.

Fold down the top points, punch a hole through the top and tie in a piece of Linen Thread and tag.  I used the 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" Circle Punches for the tag.  

Here is the back side of the holder.  You can add another card and/or gift card, money, candy, etc.

Here's another card using the Orchard Harvest DSP:

Mary Harvey designed this card for our Demonstrator Meeting make and take this month. She used the brayer to make a "reflection" image of the cowboy boot.

I love the pierced oval around the words.  We used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce the oval. I also love the Early Espresso Baker's Twine wrapped around the card.  The boots are heat embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder.
