I knew my gals would love making this card but I totally underestimated how much they would love it!! We made it for this month's Card Clubs.
My creative friend Lorri Heiling made this for a swap last year. She truly is a gifted card maker. Check it out!
She has a video tutorial on her blog here. Thank you Lorri!!
I adjusted mine just a little bit from her measurements as it still didn't quite fit in an A2 envelope.
Here are my directions:
- Cut the base for the card at 4” X 10”. Score at 5”. Fold the card in half and make a mark ½” from the fold on both sides. Use a paper cutter to cut off from the mark to the upper corner of the card. This forms the cup shape.
- Run one side of this card through the Big Shot using the embossing folder of your choice.
- Add adhesive to just the outer edges of the Celery card to secure and close it up forming a pocket at the top. See photo below.
- Run the Crumb Cake rectangle through your crimper and lay it over the cup shaped card. Turn it over and cut off the excess Crumb Cake edges.
- Wrap the ribbon around this piece securing the ends in the back. Adhere to the Celery cup card.
- Ink the ‘just for you’ stamp with markers and stamp onto White scrap card stock. Punch out with the large oval punch. Adhere to the Celery scalloped oval punched piece.
- Ink the Four Frames stamp in Espresso ink and stamp onto a larger White scrap piece. Punch out with the Decorative Label punch. Add these together with dimensionals and then to the card, over the ribbon.
- To make the inside of the card: Make a mark ½” from the bottom edges of your Espresso rectangle. Cut off an angle from the mark to the top – on both sides.
adhesive along just the very top of this Espresso piece. Add the White 1” X 4 ¼” strip that has had
the corners rounded on top. These pieces
meet at the top edge. Finish up by
adding the narrow ¼” X 4 ¼” strip over the 1” white strip.
Add a gift card to the Espresso piece with double stick tape or glue dots. Slide inside the pocket.
