Diagonal Double pocket card

by Claudia Rosa

Create a double pocket card out of one sheet of patterned paper.


  • One 8 1/2" x 11" piece of patterned Paper

  • Paper scoring tool

  • Scissors

  • Adhesive

  • Ruler

  • Additional cardstock, stamps and embellishments to decorate card front and make inserts.


  1. Step 1

    Score the long side of the patterned paper at 4 1/4" and fold in half.

  2. Step 2

    Turn paper 90 degrees, score short side at 5 1/2" and fold in half.

  3. Step 3

    Unfold paper. Cut the horizontal fold from the left edge of the paper to the vertical score line.

  4. Step 4

    Fold the bottom right corner so the bottom edge meets the edge of the center score.

  5. Step 5

    Fold down the top left corner. Leave 1" - 1 1/2" room from the edge of the folded down corner to the vertical fold.

  6. Step 6

    Fold the top left rectangle over to the right hand side.

  7. Step 7

    Fold the left bottom rectangle under the folded rectangle on the right bottom.

  8. Step 8

    Fold the bottom corner up over the other folded up corner.

  9. Step 9

    Add adhesive on the sides of the bottom half and fold it up.

  10. Step 10

    Decorate card front and create inserts for the pockets.

    Here the tags measure 2 1/2" x 5" and 1 3/4" x 5".


  1. After step six, instead of folding the right side under, fold both lower flaps up.

  2. Fold the left quadrant back. Use adhesive to attach loose ends. Now your card will be able to fold open.

Thank you for a great tutorial, and I am happy to learn about Technique Junkie also. I had never heard of it, but thanks to everyone for sharing.

there are plagiarism laws for a reason. And when I read the two side by side, I think lines have been crossed. I agree that nobody owns "techniques", but certainly authors own their words. And the Technique Junkies newletter is a copyrighted publication.

You are doing a good job. I wouldn't pay no mind to all of these laides that odvious have to much time in their hands. It is impossible to give credit to the person who came up with this technique. You would be putting 100+ names on there.

To all of you who attacked Claudia, you should be shame of yourselfs. You just might have stopped a person from ever posting anything on this sight. I know I won't. You just ruined it for a lot of people. Hope you are happy!!!!!!!

I think this tutorial is well done, the project absolutely adorable. I am, however, saddened, that a fellow stamper/crafter is so critized in a public forum. No matter where this poor woman learned the technique, she put her own spin on it by choosing the colors together with her choice of stamps and, most importantly, she took the time to share something she loves on a site that is supposed to be for people who love to stamp. Furthermore, the SCS website administrators must spend an enormous amount of time to keep this website going for all of our enjoyment. That time, coupled with the time they all spend to try to come up with ideas and techniques to keep us coming back is, I am sure, a great sacrifice of their time for our benefit. To have fellow stampers such as Claudia, or any other individual, take the time to write up a tutorial lightens the administrator's load by not having to continually come up with "new" spins on old ideas. I, for one, would never put myself in such a "line of fire" for such an attack and I am sure there are plenty others out their on the world wide web that feel the same way. I hope that I never see such "tadoo" on this site again because I'm sure that if this starts a trend, SCS will just say to heck with it and then we will all be saying good-bye to a wonderful site that offers such enjoyment to those who love to craft. Free country, freedom of speech are all well and good, but whatever happened to plain old "tact", if you have something derogatory to say, say it to the person by personal message, not in a world wide public forum.

Claudia, HUGS.

Maybe this will cheer you? I had never come to these tutorials before! I just sorta stumbled around. Then I heard about the drama and was like, "What? They have them logged somewhere?" Because I never read my inkling or the home page. *because I'm a dork* anyhow if not for this drama I'd not have found ALL the tutorials and so that's cool right?

Well maybe that's too random to be cheerful?

Love your work, love the tutorial. You are cute as a pie.

What a cute card! Thanks for the tutorial, Claudia. It must be providence as I just today bought two packets of seeds to tuck into my niece's birthday card, then I came home and read your tutorial. One question - if one does the variation, in what various places should one put adhesive? Thanks!

Claudia, I think that I am going to use this for a class with some friends in a couple weeks. You did a great job and do not get discouraged with all these comments. I think that if 1 person said something- all the rest need not. Congrats on being asked to post this and hope to see you on here more!
Heidi  |  Wed Jun 4, 2008 at 4:41 PM
Great job! Love it, Claudia! The sample is beauitful!!

I have been a subscriber to SCS for about a year now, and have tried various projects giving MY cards to various friends and family, and I can say that I never give credit to the person who came up with the "idea". I also do not get T.J. and would have never been introduced to such a fun card had it not been for Claudia. Thank you for sharing, no matter who's wording you use. I will definitely try this in the near future, but I fear there are too many people out there "out to get" other people instead of making a great card for fun!
