Criss Cross Happy Holidays Pocket Card
I purchased a Scor-Pal and had a lot of fun browsing their site for card making ideas. I ran across the criss cross pocket card and thought I’d give it a try.

Supplies & Embellishments Used in this Project
Quick Instructions for this Project
- Create an A2 criss cross card – with red card stock.
- Using the triangular pieces that you cut from the red card base, make a template for the white card stock you’ll stamp and glue to the front of the card base. Be sure to cut them a bit shorter to allow for a red border.
- Stamp on the white card stock according to the set’s instructions, then brush the edges of each triangle with bamboo leaves ink.
- Glue stamped triangles to the card base. Run a thin bead of glue along the bottom of the right flap, creating a bottom for the “pocket.” On the left flap, run a thin bead of glue along the bottom and up half of the the triangle, securing it to the right flap.
- Brush bamboo leaves ink on wooden button and thread and loop sew with embroidery floss and glue button in place.
- To create the inside card, cut a piece of green card stock to 5 1/4″ wide by 3 15/16″ tall. Round corners with punch. Cut a piece of white card stock 4 3/4″ wide by 3″ tall, stamp with sentiment. Glue white card stock to green card stock, leaving an even border of green around the card.
- On a scrap piece of white card stock, stamp flowers in pink, burgundy, and camellia and leaves in green tea. Fussy cut 5 flowers and 3 leaves and glue to inside card.
Slip inside card into pocket card base and that it’s – a beautiful card that’s as fun to give as it is to make!
This pocket card is a unique way to share a variety of items – a recipe, a letter to a friend, or a photo. I hope you have as much fun making this card as I did and I look forward to seeing photos of your work in our Rubber Stamp Tapestry Facebook Community.
