Miracle Double Pocket Card

I still have some of my Miracle kit left over, even after creating this.  I made this adorable Double Pocket Card using instructions by the very talented Beate Johns which she shares on the Splitcoaststampsers website.  You can find her instructions HERE.

I kept mine pretty basic, but next time I think I'd like to pull out my sewing machine and do some stitching on the edges.  I kept the tag blank simply because I'm not sure who I will give this to or what I'd like it to say yet.  And I made mine basically as a card front/postcard style.  If I decide I need to write more than I can fit on the tag, then I can easily glue it onto a base, but I like it as is.  :)

Coming to mind just now is my sister's birthday that is coming up next month.  She loves to read and loves her coffee, so I think this would be the perfect card to mail to her with a gift card(s).
