Daily Special - Anything But Cards - #10 Envelope Tag/Pocket Card




Click Here for the Tutorial

Today's Daily is a tutorial on the envelope tag/pocket card. It's another project using the #10 Envelope (9 1/2" x 4 1/8" mailing envelope). I've been really into making projects using envelopes. Call me lazy or cheap. Using envelopes are less costly than using cardstock and a lot faster to create. I hate all the scoring and glue/adhesive required to create a pocket.

Anyway this pocket card was fun to create. The pocket card is 4 5/8" (length) x 4 1/8" (width). The tag insert is 4 1/2" x 3 5/8". To make two pocket cards require only one envelope
