Baby Alwin

Have you had a chance to try the double pocket card yet? Well... here is the second style you can try with these folds (see bottom). Make a card that actually opens AND gives you the 2 pockets.
I thought this kind of card is so cute for baby cards, gift cards or any kind of invitations. You could add baby's name on one tag on the second tag the birth dates and inside is still space for a cute picture of the newborn and a poem. How neat is this if you have a dinner party - you could add the menue on one tag and a map on the second tag and inside is still space to write.
Can you tell....??? LOVE this card.

Anyhow.. for this card I used Magnolias new "sitting Alwin" , you can find him at Magnolias site under: Spring/Summer 2008, first page. The is also cute Tingla to make baby girl cards - you have to check them out! Stars were Alwin is sitting on are punched out with SU large star punch (Barely Banana CS) and covered with Dazzeling Diamond Dust to make them sparkely :-)


CS/Designer Paper: Stampin Up: Afternoon Tea, Chocolate Chip, White, Barely Banana for stars
Tools: Stampin up: piercing template, large oval punch, large star punch, Nestabilities large ovals (plain and scalloped), Tags are made with Cuttlebug "Red Tag Sale" Alphabet
Embellishments: Soft Sky double stiched ribbon, Dazzeling Diamond Dust, silver Hodgepodge/hardware
Stamps: Magnolia "Alwin" and Stampin up for sentiments (retiered Level 1 Hostess)

Make the "Double Pocket Card" open style with this tutorial and change folding with these instructions:

It's so sweet! How totally adorable. And thank you so much for the tutorial. I'm definitely going to use it.
I do have a question, I was just looking over some stamps I wanted to by at Magnolia when all of a sudden it became unavailable. This was a few days ago. Do you have any idea when they might be back again? Do you also know how long it takes for them to ship? I just really HAVE to have some of my own now too. Thank you Claudia!

Andrea said...
