To create this fun fold card design, start with two panels of patterned paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4" each. Cut each card on the diagonal, top corner to opposite bottom corner, Cut the two panels OPPOSITE from one another (see photo above) so that you start the cut on the opposite corner.

Arrange the halves to make two criss cross pockets.

Tape along the bottom and side of each triangle, making sure not to put any adhesive along the diagonal. (see photo above).

Adhere your triangles to a base layer measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". This is a single piece of cardstock, NOT a folded card. I used Sirio Ultra Black cardstock as my base to make my patterned paper pop.

I used some pretty vellum and flower dies to add a simple heart sentiment to the front of my pocket. I love easy card templates like this that can be adapted for any occasion.

    The cutting instructions are for two cards. So you cut the two rectangles and then use the pieces to make two cards. I’ll update the instructions to make that a little clearer.
