I changed up the embellishments a bit (no bows for the guys). I used the Whisper White cotton ribbon and just tied a simple knot in the ribbon before it was adhered to the card layer. Some cards feature the Basic Gray Bakers Twine, Silver Buttons and/or the Essentials Hardware Clips from Stampin' Up!. Here are the cards from last week in this color way:
Cards A&B - Gate Fold and Standard Side Fold
This week, I am again featuring a Standard Side Fold Card as well as an Easel Card. I have done all the measuring for you and have prepared cutting diagrams to help you get the most from your cardstock and DSP. If you want to work ahead, you can cut the cardstock and DSP and label them with the letter on the diagram. Then sort them by letter so you have all the pieces you need for assembling each card. I also have some general directions for all cards as well as specific directions for each card - including the folding technique.
Card C - Standard Side Fold
1. Start with a card base cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
2. Score at 4 1/4"
3. Fold in half on the score line.
Card D - Easel Card
1. Start with a card base cut 4 1/4" x 11"
2. Score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
3. Fold on both score lines. See photos.
4. Add a sentiment/layer to the inside of the card using dimensional adhesive. This is what holds the easel in place when open.
I hope you are enjoying this series. Stop back again next Saturday for more great cards.
