I love dies that can offer several uses. The more uses, the more I feel like they help stretch my crafting dollar further. My Trifold Pocket Page die was designed as a page that I could tuck into mini books. The the notch holds it closed and makes a great hidden journaling element for mini books, journal pages, or larger scrapbook pages. I have found that I really love using it as a quick and easy card structure too.
When using it as a card, the small size makes it quick and easy to embellish it. When I am short on time and in need of a quick card, this die is a perfect go-to.
To embellish this card, I die cut a piece of pattern paper to fit the front of the card. I stamped my Flower Swag 5 stamp on white cardstock and then colored it with markers. I cut the stamped piece to fit the front of the card, adhered it in place and then added machine stitching around the edges.
To add extra dimension, I stamped and colored the image again on a second piece of cardstock. I cut out the small flowers. I adhered them to the card with adhesive foam placing them over the matching flowers on the card. I added a bit of shimmer with a glitter brush pen.
I created a simple embellishment by added a die cut Shortie Tab die cut to a paper clip. I added a small staple to secure it in place. I wrote a simple sentiment on the tab before clipping it onto the edge of the card front.
Another thing I love about using the Trifold Pocket Page as a card is that it is the perfect size for a gift card! To adhere the gift card to the inside of the card, simply add a line of adhesive from a tape runner to the back of the gift card and adhere to the inside of the card! Super easy!
Sweet, simple, and so easy! What a great way to add a personal touch to a gift card!
