So I had my very first workshop this past weekend. My step-mother (biggest cheerleader, customer, and friend) hosted the party and it went really well. I used the card shown here that I learned to make at Regionals this past September. I was really happy with the turn out and it seemed to be a hit. It's a Pocket Card, so can be used for gift certificates, etc. I love the jumbo brads and stamping on the pattern paper.
We had 11 ladies show up and a very good time.
Here's to more fun in the future!
Here are the direction for making a pocket card.
Pocket Card

Card Stock:
Main color – 12” x 4” (Glorious Green shown here)
2nd Color – 3½” x 3½” (Real Red shown here)
3rd Color – 3½” x ½” (White shown here)
4th Color - Could use embellishment or paper here. I stamped an image on pattern paper and went that route.

Jumbo eyelet
Bone Folder
Paper Snips
Paper Cutter w/ scoring blade

1. Score Main card stock at 4” and 8”. Score diagonally from the top of the 4” score mark to the bottom of the 8” score mark. Fold card away from you on the diagonal score, and then fold up on the 8” score mark to create pocket. Adhere pocket together, leaving top open. Fold on 4” score mark to create 4” x 4” card.
2. With the scored piece of card stock, make sure that the middle, diagonal score mark is going from top left to bottom right. Fold the middle, diagonal fold backwards.
3. Fold the remaining two pieces to make a card.
4. Adhere the pocket to the back of the card, remember to not glue the pocket part, so you can slip something in it.
