Copic Card Challenge in support of Koala Kids

I am so excited to be entering my first Copic Card Challenge for 2 reasons. Apart from having a chance to win some incredible prizes, it's all for a good cause. I love that Copic Australia will donate $5 to Koala Kids for EVERY card entered! I have also chosen to donate my card to a Koala Kids Patient.

For this challenge, I've created my first criss-cross pocket card and below you will find instructions on how I made it.

          Materials needed
  • 1 12'x12' card stock for the pocket (I've used white)
  • Card stock (contrasting colour) for insert, frames and punches (I've used red) 
  • 2 pieces of 5 3/8" x 5 3/8" patterned paper
  • 2 piece of 5 3/8" x 5 3/8" patterned paper cut in half for triangles
  • Scor-Pal
  • Martha Stewart heart border punch
  • Strong
  • Scissors/paper trimmer
  • corner rounder
  • Stamped image/s and embellishments as desired 


Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 5 1/2" x 11" and score each piece at 5 1/2"
Cut one of the squares in half to form a triangle (on each piece).

Glue both squares together

Cut 3 squares of patterned paper (5 3/8" x 5 3/8")
One will be for the inside.
* (cut 4 squares if you want one for the back cover)

The remaining 2 squares can be cut in half to form triangles.
You should have 4 triangles but you only need two.
* If you are using the same patterned paper for each triangle then you only need one square.

The INSIDE and BACK square should look like this.
I've only covered the inside.

Glue both patterned triangles to the back. 
When they are folded towards the front, 
the patterned paper will be seen when crossed at the front.

It should look like this once folded.
Glue or place adhesive on the bottom of the inside square, 
as well as the bottom of the triangle that will be on top of the card. 

For the Insert
Cut cardstock and patterned paper same size as in picture.
Round off both top corners of each piece.
Use the heart punch along the bottom.

For the Tab
Cut a strip of cardstock 2 1/2" long and use the heart punch along one side.

Make sure you place the tab piece between the other 2 pieces 
before sticking them together.

I made this circle with sentiment to be glued on my insert.

To make the circle

Cut out a 3 1/2" circle and stamp as desired.
I cut another strip of cardstock and used the heart punch along one side 
to create a border to frame my circle.

This is how it looks with the border around it.
I got this idea from Norma (From my craft room)
Check out her other borders and her cool blog.

Embellish your card as desired.

           Both digital stamps are from La La Land Crafts and coloured with copic markers.
