Diagonal Double Pocket Fold Card for Petaloo Blog Hop

Hello Dear Stamper Friends:

I am very happy to be NOW, 
officially part of the Design Team (DT) of Petaloo...

A few weeks ago I acted as a "Guest Designer" .... 
with 2 projects: a Fall one and a Halloween one
and now I am part of this group...
I feel so honored to be creating along side a VERY TALENTED  and well known group of ladies in the industry!  
and that Petaloo, 
liked my work and wanted to include me in their DT group...
what a wonderful opportunity for me to learn, be inspired and hopefully bring my personal contribution as well ...
Thanks Petaloo!

for my 1st "Petaloo's" Official post, 
and their "Blog Hop" with "Authentique" papers
I made a "Diagonal Double Pocket Fold Card"

 pin it:  

These card I like to call it a "hybrid", because it is a card and a mini scrapbook book at the same time...with several pockets, wonderful to display photos, tags, small notes and it is small enough to be send in a envelope...

when you open the card, you can have space to place lots of tags or photos...
the right side of this card has 3 pockets
1- a small front one made with a frame and double side tape to tuck inside small tags
2- and you have 2 big diagonal pockets made from folds...for bigger tags or photos...

 and here is the back

For this card I used flowers and trims from "Petaloo" and the papers are from "Authentique -Grateful collection kit"

this "Authentique - Grateful" collection comes with lots of wonderful pattern papers and with 3 sheets of tags, stickers and enhancements...
