A Surprising Outcome

Hello.  Welcome.  I have been wanting to try the Double Diagonal Pocket Card tutorial over at MFP, so here it is.  I thought I was making a birthday card for a boy but turned out to be a christmas card with hidden potential.........

Definitely christmas!!  Kinda cute.  Love the little santa and gingerbread man peeking over the top.

I stamped on my tags and added a extra little pocket so gingerbread man is holding a giftcard.  Quite a fun design and quite easy once I got my head around it.  My best tip is to not use a paper with text or directional design cos some of it will end up upside down LOL. All stamps are MFP - Dear Santa and Holiday Tags sets.  I cut my tags using Taylored Expressions Tags Stacklets 1 dies.  Inks - Archival and Distress

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
