Florentine Diagonal Double Pocket Card

Yup -- you read the title correctly :)  For today's post, I created a Diagonal Double Pocket Card (say that 3 times fast!) using our new Florentine paper pack.

I don't know what it is lately - but I am just sooooo into making cards with folds.  Thus, today's post!

Here's my card for your consideration:

Tag #1

Tag #1 - inside tag open

Tag #2
I have wanted to make this card for some time now.  I went back to Splitcoaststampers for a tutorial on it.  I have to say that though I love their projects and tutorials -- they are not always the easiest to follow and I find myself kind of winging it part of the way.

As I mentioned earlier, I used our new Florentine paper pack for this card.  I love the way the papers are so coordinated.  I ended up using three different stamp sets on this card:  Family Love (D1506), Love Life (D1482), and the February Stamp of the Month - Thoughtful Tidings (S1202).  I have find each of these sets to be so versatile -- I have used them several times in different projects.

Of course, I just HAD to use our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge!  And, of course, each of the stamp sets I chose, coordinates with the AP cart.

Here is a list of my cuts:

Tag #1:  p. 69, E9, shift - tag - < Banner6 > at 5"
Tag #1:  p. 50, C10, < Tag2 > at 5"

Tag #2:   p. 70, E10, < Tag5 > at 5"
Tag #2:  p. 44, C4 shift - tag - < Bracket1 > at 5"

Swirl border:  p. 59, D9, font layer < Banner5 > at 4" (fit to length)
Swirl border:  p. 58, D8, font layer < Tab2 > at 4" 
Small tag card:  p.70, E10, card < Tag5 > at 2"
Flower:  p. 69, E9, shift font < Heart3 > at 3"
Heart:  p. 69, E9, shift < Heart3 > at 2"
