This card conceals 3 pull out tabs that are each stamped with little words and sentiments. It could be used for any occasion with the words changed to suit. It was fun to make and using different stamp sets could be a great card for little ones with its secret pockets for hidden messages.

I was inspired to make this card by a scrapbook page that I saw in a magazine about 6 months ago, so I had to figure out the dimensions and put it together myself. The card is slightly taller than standard, and is 6 inches x 4.5 inches. I used a 1 inch circle punch for the indents down the side. I punched the middle one first and then measured to the centre of the spaces either side of the centre semi-circle and then punched the other two semi-circles. Inside the front of the card I attached another sheet of cardstock using sticky strip on the top, bottom and along the centre fold of the card, and then used a zig-zag sewing stitch to create the three pockets. Once the pockets were made I was then able to determine the size of the tags.
The outside pocket was made by using a pocket from the pockets and pieces sheets, which I used as a guide but then made it smaller to fit onto the front of the card. I also cut a window in it using a knife blade and ruler so that the tag was visible.
Overall, there are 4 tags where you can write messages or attach small photos or stamp on.
There are so many ways that this card could be used, all depending upon the stamps and colours and purpose.
Thanks for looking.
