June club projects

Hello stampers! I finished my second stamp club of the month, so I'm ready to share my projects with you. This month, we did two projects since they were both fairly simple. The first one was a double-pocket card. There are tutorials for this project all over the internet including one by Claudia Rosa on Splitcoaststampers, but a fellow demonstrator showed me how to make one (thanks Rhonda!). Each card uses one sheet of designer series paper, cut to 8-1/2" x 11" and some scraps of coordinating cardstock. The two pockets are perfect for including a pull-out tag with a handwritten note and filling the second with a gift card, a tea bag, a chocolate square, whatever your little heart desires.

The second project is a simple window card with a slit closure. Such a simple project, but my stamp clubbers loved it! To create the scallop frame around the window, simply punch into your cardstock with the 1-3/8" circle punch and then center your scallop circle punch around the space left in the cardstock.

Great cards Marylin! I bet your club loved them. That double pocket card is awesome. I really need to try that.

sooo pretty, I have been wanting to try this double pocket card. I guess I will add to my ever growing list of things I need to try.

I agree that these are both great! Sometimes simpler is better, and it's easy to forget that.
