Get Well, Hand-Penned Petals

Pretty Perennial Triangle Pocket Fun Fold Card

I have finally gotten back to playing with paper…which for me is making cards.  I saw this front triangle pocket card design and thought I’d give it a try.  It was much easier than I thought and I love that it makes the card look like an envelope.  And I think the design is a perfect way to mix and match two stamp sets and coordinating paper.

I love the soft subtle spring-like colors in this Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  There are so many ways to mix and match the patterns too.

Although I used this paper, I didn’t use the coordinating stamp set, Hand-Penned Petals, for the flowers that I put into the front pocket.  I stamped those using the Pretty perennials Stamps. 

I wanted flowers that were a little bigger in size. And a little different in shape.
The leaves were die cut from both Mint Macaron and Just Jade Cardstock using the In Bloom Dies.  I love the stitching and embossing on these leaves and they are just the right size for tucking into the pocket.

I did use the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set for the sentiment.  The loopy script is great for a little fussy cutting around the words.

If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies that you will need:

  • Pretty Perennials Stamp Set (flowers)
  • Pretty Perennials Dies
  • In Bloom Dies (stitched leaves)
  • Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2″ x  8 1/2″; Score at 4 1/4″; Plus scraps to stamp flowers: Plus two pieces cut 4″ x 1/2″
  • Basic White Cardstock – Cut 5 1/4″ x 4″ and scraps to stamp  flowers
  • Just Jade Cardstock – scraps for leaves
  • Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper – Cut 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (Cut in half corner to corner, then Cut one of those triangles in half for inside corners)
  • Basic Pearl Gems
  • Ink: Blushing Bride, Pale Papaya, and Just Jade
  • Adhesive: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Dimensionals
  • Tools: Paper Trimmer, Pencil & Ruler, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Paper Snips

I also made another card with different paper from the same Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  This was the first one I made and I didn’t use as many flowers or leaves…..and of course a different sentiment from the same stamp set,  Hand-Penned Petals.  I love the mix of fonts in this stamp set.

So, how did I make that pocket?  It’s much easier than you might think.  You will need a pencil  and a ruler and the ability to remember one measurement – 2 3/4”.  turn your paper so that the 5 1/2” is at the top.  Measure 2 3/4” across the top and mark the spot.  Then measure down 2 3/4” from the top left corner and make a mark, then repeat for the top right corner.  Line up the middle mark on the cutting track of your printer and then line up the mark on the left had side.  You will score on that line.  Repeat for the right side – lining up the two marks with the cutting track and score.  With the card closed, fold the triangles in toward the center.   If you need more help, just watch the video and make this card along with me:  Triangle Pocket Fun Fold Card

  1. I really like the design, but my first attempt was a hot mess! Lil. Definitely will be trying this one again! Thanks, Pat.

    1. I’m sorry that you felt the need to leave such a negative comment referring to my not taking pride in my work. I do take pride in my work and I try to give accurate measurements for my projects. In fact the measurements listed in the blog and on the video are correct. I can only assume that you only read the comment by my friend Sharon and did not actually make this card yourself with the measurements I provided, nor did you watch the video which have the same measurements and shows the completed card using those measurements.
