Designer's Choice 19 - Charming Card Holder With Ruth Hamilton

This die set makes a cute little pocket/envelope which holds 2 little cards or photographs. It can also be used in memory books, scrapbooks or as a gift card holder on the front of a card. I have made a video where I show you how to make up the basic card holder and also how to adapt the die set to make a pop up card which folds flat. You can see the video below.

Fold over the top white section and glue the tabs onto the Ocean Blue card. I have held mine in place with mini pegs until the glue sets.
