Line your cardstock edge up with the 1/2" score groove and score at 4 1/4".
If you are not using the Scor-Pal™, score at 3 3/4".
Line the cardstock up with the edge of your Scor-Pal™ and score at 7 1/2".
Prefold your score lines mountain valley style.
Unfold your cardstock and line it up with at 1 7/8" on your paper cutter. Cut from the top of your cardstock down to your first score line.
Line your first score line up with your cutting groove and cut the first score line down to your cut.

Take the tape liner off, fold pocket top back and adhere to pocket base.
Unfold the middle and add Scor-Tape™ on the bottom and side.
Take tape liner off and fold pocket top over.
Adhere your pocket base to your 4" x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock.

You can use the second pocket for a gift card.
If you want to add additional images, leave your gift card and tag in the card. Then add dimensionals to hold your image.
Place your image over the dimensionals and tape down.
