Double Pocket Card

Here is a fun idea combining a card and two bookmarks.  I think I have only made two of these in all the years of card making.  Because I skipped the yard work today due to rain, I thought I would take time to make something a little out of the ordinary.  Here is a great tutorial video to explain how to make one of these cards.

The paper I used is Heidi's Hearts by Fiskars.  It worked perfectly because the backside of the paper is a shimmery, almost metallic white and the little red and green dots on the front are like little embossed pearls.
The bookmarks are made with Bugaboo prints colored with Copics and Prisma pencils.

The sentiment on the bookmark on the right is from an Altenew stamp set.
Butterfly is Birch Press.  I used a Copic on the center part to make it a shade darker than the card stock it is cut from and then I added a green pearl.

Thanks for looking.
