Becca Bit: Putting Together Pocket Card

Hi there blog friends! Several of you asked me to show how I put together the pocket card. It’s easy and doesn’t take much time so I thought I’d go ahead and make a Becca Bit out of it :-) I really like this format. It’s very easy and it makes a very sturdy card even if you have a wimpy weight of cardstock.  I see lots of possibilities for the cut out on the pocket with die cuts and border punches.  Since it’s fresh on my mind, you may see more this week.

Thanks so much for peeking in!!  See you tomorrow!!

    Becca, I couldn’t get your video on the pocket card to work. Message is the video is not available.ReplyCancel

    very cool, thanks Becca…! Was the camera in fast motion when you were cranking the handle or were you going that fast? Impressive! I noticed you used an embossing tool to score–will have to try that one…I don’t like the tool that came with my MS Score pad.ReplyCancel

    Love the idea of a pocket card… I don’t have the Grand Calibur, but I figure I will ‘down-size’ the technique to an A2 card…wish me luck! Tks for sharing.ReplyCancel

    Thanks for sharing!!ReplyCancel

  • Debbie BApril 27, 2011 - 6:05 am

    Thank you for the tutorial. Could you do this in a smaller format if you don’t have the Grand Caliber? I know it wouldn’t be as grand as yours but maybe a 4X4 card?ReplyCancel

  • bonnie weissApril 27, 2011 - 7:03 am

    You make every trip to my computer worthwhile, whenever you have posted something, Becca and this visit is no exception. This is definitely a ‘let’s give it a go’ card style and technique…thanks.ReplyCancel

    There was no video nor wording on how to make the card.ReplyCancel

  • KarenApril 27, 2011 - 9:35 am

    Great tutorial Becca! Thanks for showing such detail-you make it look so simple. I had my a-ha! moment when you did the second score line for the pocket so it would accomodate a bulkier insert. Thanks for sharing it with us.ReplyCancel

  • CharlotteApril 27, 2011 - 10:02 am

    Your pocket card is a great idea! Thank you so much for doing a video tutorial on how to make it (which us “visual” learners so appreciate). I don’t have a grand calibur so can’t make a card this size – but, I’m going to try making a smaller size card with one of the “regular” nestabilities die.ReplyCancel

  • Francie (Montreal)April 27, 2011 - 10:14 am

    Thank you, Becca. You’re explanations are so easy to follow, I believe a dull-normal like myself could do it. If you ever give up crafting (shudder), I could see you excel in a teaching roll, too.ReplyCancel

  • Monica BlackApril 27, 2011 - 10:36 am

    Beautiful card. Thanks for the tutorial. I use blue painters tape to hold my dies in place. No need to de-tack it.ReplyCancel

  • CandyApril 27, 2011 - 10:53 am

    Very very nice! What did you use to create gold wording ie. gold stamping on your card? Was this ink? or embossing powder? or other? Was the tag cut out of gold mirror paper or other? Thanks so much for your inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • CandyApril 27, 2011 - 10:55 am

    I found the answers. Thanks again for all your hard work!ReplyCancel
