Dino-Mite Double-Pocket Fold Cards

So, I know I haven't blogged in about a week or so, but for good reason... I have been creating things, but no one has received their cards yet, so I can't post them yet... I do have a few children's cards to share with you (as I am pretty sure these kids don't check my blog). I finally tried the double-pocket fold cards using the tutorial on Splitcoast. You can find the tutorial HERE.

My color palatte was Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie. I used the Dino-Mite SU! stamp set. For the shapes behind the dinosaurs, I used my cricut (I forget which cartridge I used). To make the pockets more noticable, I added a layer of cardstock along the top of each one, folding it over into the pocket itself. I adhered the entire thing with Super-Sticky Redliner tape and would recommend you do the same if you try this one... it just holds better. All in all, I am pleased with the outcome of these cards. The two on the ends are going to my nephews, Noah & Daniel, and the one in the middle is a RAK for a little boy with cancer.

Hope you enjoyed my cards today... as soon as the recipients of the other cards I've been hard at work making receive their cards, I will post them! See you soon!

God Bless,

P.S. Here's another pic from our beach vacation...
