Criss Cross Pocket card with Stampin Up and Quick Quotes for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I must admit I created this card a few weeks ago and yes, I did get it to my mother before Mother's Day.  As soon as I saw this sketch I was reminded of this criss cross pocket card.  I made these once before for Xmas cards and loved them.  I was so happy to revisit this fold.  Of course, I didn't remember and had to find some videos.  I still kind of did my own thing here to fit the sketch.

Here's the sketch.

The insert includes a Quick Quotes coordinating embellishment.  The card is used one 8.5"x11" piece of paper instead of half of one but still creates an A2 card.  Cut the paper in half creating two A2's (;long) and score at 5.5".  Then cut a triangle from the "front" half of the card.  Overlap the back solid panels and adhere.  This will leave you with the two triangular fronts.  The mats and inserts are simply cut down by increments to fit.

 I love the combination of Quick Quotes Farmhouse and Stampin Up Dusty Durango I had to make another one.  I criss crossed the other way on this one and also it doesn't have the Mother's Day theme.  I used dies to create the layered center piece.

The inside of this card.  I stamped a large bold sentiment from Stamplorations.
