For this challenge, I decided to create a new type of card for me: Double pocket card, because I wanted to participate in the Between the Folds challenge and wanted to make a card for my Father for Father's day including bookmarks:

I used Polka Doodles digital image: HANDYMAN DAVE DIGITAL STAMP DOWNLOAD
I used some CTMH masculine paperback. retired a while ago. And This Father's day stamp for my stamped sentiment.
For the dangle on the bookmarks, I used Creative Embellishments chipboard wears and double heat embossed them. For the details, please see my following post.

The front of the tags: I used two freebie sentiments from Polka Doodles, and foil them using my laminating machine:

The back of the tags. the handy man again, and a sticker:

A closer look to the foil-sentiments:

I hope you enjoyed this cards as much as I did.
Have a wonderful week
