This is the fun Everyday Heroes card we will be making today.  It’s tiny, but mighty…measuring only 4″ x 6″ when all folded up.  But it’s loaded with pockets, tags and room to tuck in a gift card, tea bag or individually wrapped chocolate.  It would be great for Father’s Day or graduation, too!

Everyday Heroes Newsprint 04The front of the card has double pockets with two tags tucked inside.  I stamped my cardstock base with the fabulous Newsprint Stamp.  This  might just by my very favorite stamp that Heartfelt Creations has ever produced!  Oh, the ideas I have in my head for using this stamp!!!  I used the beautiful Arianna Blooms stamp and die to create the flowers from copper metallic cardstock. The antiqued globe was made with the Everyday Heroes My World Stamp set and cut out with the Everyday Heroes Die.  Here’s  a close up of the flowers:

Everyday Heroes Newsprint 02bI brushed the edges with paint and filled the center with beads.  Shaping them was easy because I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping kit!

Everyday Heroes Newsprint 05aThe card opens to reveal a double pocket on the inside that has been filled with journaling inserts from the paper collection and a stamped card front.  Plenty of room here to tuck in a gift card!  Now, let’s get started with our Double Pocket Card Tutorial!
