December 2016 Stamping Fun Night

The first card we made was a double-gate-fold card.  It's a great way to use both sides of the double-sided designer paper!  It's easier to make than it looks.  See the How-To below for directions!

Wonderful Year

Presents and Pinecones Paper (5 ½” x 12”)
Emerald Envy (3 ½” x 5” and ½” x 2 ¾”)
Whisper White (3 ¼” x 4 ¾” and 1 ¼” x 2 ½”)

Emerald Envy

medium envelope- Whisper White
Simply Scored

·      -Score the long end of a 5 ½” x 12” piece of Designer Paper at 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10”.
·      -Rotate the paper 90 degrees and mark both short ends at 2 ¾” with pencil.
·      -Cut a diagonal line from the 4” score line to the 2 ¾” pencil mark on each side.  Cut from the “top” of the design so it is not upside down later!  I learned this from experience!  :) 
·      -Fold the score lines in and back.
·      -Use the 2 triangle pieces and flip them to the opposite lower side.  Adhere to the card.  TIP: Adhere the larger/inside end of the triangle, fold, and then attach the shorter/outside end of the triangle.
·      -Finish the card: add an inside panel, attach a belly band, attach words to the outside, etc.

We made a quick and easy thank you card.  If you don't have coordinating ribbon, card stock also looks nice!

The last card we made was perfect for the snowy day we were having!  The Soft Sky color behind the tree is made by pressing a clear block directly onto an ink pad, and then stamping it on the card stock.
