Card CASE and 5.25 x 5.25" Multi-Flap Card with Pocket/Insert Tutorial

Hi Friends!  I decided to join  the Unity Stamps "Kit Club".  Wow, for the size and amount of the "kit of the month" stamps it is so worth the $24.00 price each month.  There's no obligation.. . .you can cancel at any time.   I can't wait to receive my October kit.  The stamps on this card is from the September's KOM.   Go check it out at Unity Stamps. 

The tutorial I created is actually a CASE of a card that I saw at Scrapbook Freubelen Cards and Things.  Scroll down to check it out!!  The card is a 5.25 x 5.25" Multi-flap card with a pocket and insert. 

Do you know of a blogger that may not have a lot of visitors or not very well-known but create cards and projects that are so impressive you wonder why the site doesn't have more visitors?  Well, I've been a fan of Scrapbook Freubelen Cards and Things for over a year, maybe 2 years.  She makes beautiful pocket cards and other unique projects. Her cards and projects has a vintage/shabby chic look to them and they're beautiful!!!  Go check out her blog site. . .you'll understand what I'm talking about.  There's so many projects that I see on her blog that I want to try out.  She doesn't have tutorials or instructions on her blog so I basically, eye-balled her card and came up with my own tutorial.

Here is the card opened up. 
The other flap reveals and inner 5.25 x 5.25" card base.

The card base then opens up to reveal a pocket with an insert!  How fun is that?  Oh, gosh there's a lot of projects at Scrapbook Freubelen that I want to try out.  I'll probably go through a few more projects and create tutorials for them so you can try them out too.

Hey. . .just wondering. . .do you like the new Blogger editing format?  I actually hate it.  The format is great for someone who don't post a lot of pictures on their blog. . .but it's a pain for those who do. . .like me.  It adds all sorts of html codes that I didn't insert. . .so I have to go back and delete them or my post layout gets screwed up.  It also doesn't have spell check anymore. . .which I badly need!  LOL!  Sometimes improvements are not improvements at all. 

Anyway. . .I hope you'll try to project. . .it's actually quite easy so don't be intimidated by all the flaps and such.

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!

 Just to let you know, the tutorial was uploaded through Scribd.com and if you want to download or print the tutorial, you may need to register with Scribd. Scribd is just a site that allows you to upload Word and pdf. documents which you can't do directly on Blogger so I have to use another source to upload the tutorials rather than posting it directly on Blogger. You can find other crafters who post templates and tutorials on Scribd as well so it's a good idea to register. There's no obligation. It's a free site.

To view the tutorial directly from my blog, just scroll down using the scroll bar to the right of the tutorial. You can also enlarge the document by clicking the plus sign or magnifying glass. You have other options on the "more" drop down menu. Check it out!

what a fun card! I love all the flip flaps.

I still have spell check on my blogger. Are you using a different blogger version? Would it help if you had two columns instead of three? Just thinking..

Beautiful card Maria. I love all the folds. Don't you just love Unity Stamps. I signed up in August and I have collected quite a few of their other stamps as well. Hey, that is a great paper crafter's blog you found. I am sure that I will get lots of ideas from there.
xoxo, Christine
