For those times when you either can’t decide on which side of a designer series paper to use or want to show off multiple, this Crossover Pocket card design is the way to go.

This card layout reminded me of pretzels, so isn’t it fitting to use the pretzel stamp and pretzel paper?

And a Crossover Pocket card makes a great gift card holder, too! The Crossover Pocket style works beautifully with so many stamp sets and paper, which makes it easily customizable. Just change the DSP and use ink colors to match.

This Delightfully Eclectic DSP is the perfect paper to play with, as it has quite a mix of fun patterns, and also comes with 4 sheets of each double-sided design! I highly recommend it!

How to make a Crossover Pocket Pretzel Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Basic Black
    • 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”
    • 2-3/4” x 4” for “bookmark”
  • Basic White: 2-1/2” x 3-3/4” (can cut 2 if you want your bookmark to have a back for more room to write a message)
  • DSP
    • 5” x 3-3/4”
    • 2-1/4” x 3-3/4”, cut in half on the diagonal for your pocket flaps

TIP: if using 6”x6” paper, these pocket flaps can be made from the leftover after cutting the background

Make the pocket:

  • On the back of each flap, put a thin line of glue along the bottoms and side edges.
  • Press one along the bottom left of your background paper. Then press the other along the bottom right.
  • Next, adhere your background paper (now with a pocket!) to your black card front.

Create the “Bookmark”:

  • Stamp the sentiment using Pretty Peacock ink in the center of your white piece. Then stamp some pretzels at the top using Calypso Coral ink.
  • Adhere this stamped piece to your small piece of black cardstock.
  • Slip the bookmark into the card pocket!
