And this is Ace, my almost 7 year old Dachshund. He is the reason the pictures are a little blurry. He was helping his Mommy.
This is the back side the diamond shape you just made. I adhered this "tab" down. You could cut it off if you chose, but I liked the sturdiness it gave.
To fix the back so that it is not split, cut a 6x6" square of cardstock of the same color, and adhere the middle section of the card to it. That will create a sturdy "back" for the card.
You will need a total of 6 panels of 2 7/8" by 5 7/8" patterned paper to cover the panels. COVER THE INNER PANELS (the red and white dotted paper) FIRST!!! Then adhere the diamond down ontop of that panel to secure the pocket. Cut a square of patterned paper to fit the diamond shape and to fit into the pocket (this also gives sturdiness to the card since the back of the pocket is "split") and a patterned paper triangle to cover the outer pocket. Create a tag to fit into the pocket. I used a matted white cardstock so I could write on it. Create the card front. Decorate and you are done!
I hope you liked this tutorial! Stay Crafty!
