The Inspiration Behind the Design

Designed with versatility in mind, the Diagonal Double Pocket Tag Card draws its aesthetic from the classic Double Pocket style, enriched with a vintage flair.

Crafted with sympathy at its core, the adaptability of this card transcends various sentiments, making it perfect for birthdays, thank you notes, and moments when you’re simply thinking of someone. Its design elements and the thoughtful combination of materials ensure that your message is delivered with warmth and sincerity, regardless of the occasion.

    Beautiful cards Tami and the tutorial was great! I am excited to make a few of these cards!

    • Tami White says

      Awesome! Have fun. I just love how many different looks you can get with the Pocket Fold design. Feel free to share with us what you’ve made on Share Your Craft Saturday on Facebook.

  2. Liz Roberts says

    I appreciate your generosity in providing PDF files for tutorials. FYI the information on the pocket fold is incorrect on the PDF, page 3 diagram. It shows base at 8.25 instead of 8.5. It’s listed other places correctly. Too bad I didn’t see that first, as I had to recut my DSP.

    • Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention! I truly appreciate your feedback about the discrepancy on the PDF template. It’s disheartening to hear that this error led to an inconvenience for you, especially with having to recut your DSP. I’m genuinely sorry for any frustration this caused.

      I hope the effort to recreate the fold reflects a liking for the design despite the hiccup. Your positive feedback, despite this issue, means a lot to me. I always recommend doing a “test” run on scrap paper for new folds to avoid such mishaps, a tip I’ve mentioned in the video as well. This approach helps to iron out any unexpected issues without compromising your valuable materials.

      Again, my apologies for the oversight, and thank you for your understanding and support. If there’s anything more I can do to assist or make up for the trouble, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
