Pocket Card...

There is a new 613 Ave C  challenge starting March 3:  "ATG/ optional Twist: "Make a Kinetic Card."  You have the month of March to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's inspirational contributions -  click HERE!

I don't classify this card as a true kinetic card...  but it does require taking the hidden message panel from the center pocket.  The base card is made quite simply with a single sheet of CS - then each page, front and back cover of the "booklet" is covered with DP and decorated.  
Thank you to my friend, Edie Kort, for the template and instructions.   I tried to find a tutorial online but was unable to find this exact fold... I will need to get permission from Edie to share her version here.  These pictures below will give you the interior shots to get a sense of the folds, the pocket and the message panel.
Create wildly and color with abandon!
