Hi Stamping Friends!
How about another fun-fold card today! This time, I'm featuring the sweet Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper on a quick & easy pocket card!
Tea Room Specialty DSP—What makes this DSP special is that it's lighter weight than traditional DSP, so it's easier to make into envelopes or use for envelope liners. There is also twice as many sheets in the pack, so the paper goes a long way! Although this particular DSP is not included in the current special, it's a fabulous design that you could use with ANY of the beautiful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers!

Tea Room Enjoy Life Pocket Cards
I've been creating lots of fun-fold cards lately just to mix it up a bit! Sometimes I forget that fun-fold doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming. Today's cards are super-easy to create with just a couple of score lines.
Pretty Pocket—The pocket of this fun-fold card is created with the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper. I started with a 4" x 10-1/2" piece of Tea Room DSP, and scored it at the 1-1/2" and 5-1/4" marks. I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to mount the largest panel of the DSP to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" quarter sheet of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Next, I wrapped some Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon around the card base and tied it into a double-knot to secure the front of the pocket in place. You don't need to use any adhesive to create the pocket…nice!
Focal Point—I decorated the front with images from the Enjoy Life stamp set. First, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White. The "love you" part of the sentiment is actually a separate image stamped in Calypso Coral. The two images are designed to be kind of a "fill-in-the-blank" style of stamp. You'll see that the second card uses "miss you" in the blank. Too Cool!
The bottom of the layer is stamped with an Enjoy Life image in Pool Party ink. It's mounted onto a 2-1/2"x 3-1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock, then popped up with Dimensionals onto the pocket front.
Pocket Card—I stamped the same wildflowers image in Pool Party ink on the bottom of the 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Whisper White pocket card. I finished by adding a little Enjoy Life butterfly in Pool Party ink at the top left corner, then I mounted it onto a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" Calypso Coral cardstock.
Two Cool—On this version, I selected a different pattern of Tea Room DSP and mounted it onto a Coastal Cabana card base. I tied some Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon around it this time to hold the pocket in place.
Focal Point—You can see the "miss you" image fills in the blank this time in Coastal Cabana. I stamped the wildflowers in Crushed Curry.
Pocket Card—I stamped the wildflowers again in Crushed Curry onto the pocket card, added a Pool Party butterfly and mounted it onto Crushed Curry cardstock.
