I'm sorry. I have had so many questions about my snowflake criss cross card, and so I redid the tutorial with more pictures. I will also be linking it with that card, so it will be easier to find.
You need a piece of CS to be the pocket, measuring 5.5 X 8.5. You will need to score it at 4.25, and then mark the center 2 inches down from the top. Cut it out from the mark toward the corners, and then sponge the edges that will be the front. I know I cut over a bit, but the belly band will cover that up, so I don't worry about it.
Now here's the way you fold it.
Here it is folded together with the mat on it. I cut the mat to 4 X 5.25, and then find the center again and go down 2 inches. I mat it on, not worrying at all if the center looks perfect, since I will be covering most of it with the belly band mentioned above.
All products are Stampin' Up! unless noted differently. I used white, bravo burgundy and always artichoke CS, as well as the Recollections DP (now retired). I crimped my artichoke paper, and added the moss gingham across the front/ I stamped the sentiment with burgundy on white, and punched it out with the 1 1/4 punch. I punched the burgundy CS with the Three For You flower punch adn added it to the sentiment with a dimensional. I then punched it with the 1/16 punch putting the brad through the center. I then matted it on the artichoke (punched with 1 3/8 and the burgundy (punched with scallop cirlce). I added this to the card with dimensionals.
Now, here is where I made my mistake. I punched the holes for my brads, and added the hodge podge...THROUGH THE WHOLE CARD...ROFL!! Oh well, I will make the pocket smaller, so it looks like it goes in farther...hehehe. I then punched the burgundy with the large oval and added it to the hodge podge with dimensionals (Faith's Favorite). I stamped the sentiment on artichoke with the same in from So Many Saying (glad I split that up), and punched it with the word window, adding it to the oval with dimensionals.
Hope this clears things up a bit. Have fun and happy stamping!!
