This card is really quick and easy…I feel like I say that a LOT! But, it’s true. After the first one, you will be able to whip these off…easy peasy!
Here’s what you need to get started:
Card base: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Patterned Paper: 5″ x 4″
White card stock for inside: 5″ x 4″
To start, fold your card base on the score line. Then mark each 4 1/4″ side at 2 1/8″ with a little pencil mark. Next mark the side that opens at 2 3/4″.
Now, open the card and put it in your trimmer so you can SCORE from the FOLD line to the 2 3/4″ mark on both sides and then from the 2 1/8″ mark to the 2 3/4″ inch mark on both sides as well. (See the photo below. I’ve drawn the score lines in pencil so they will show up. Do not draw yours. Just score in that manner.)
Now take your patterned paper and the white card stock and make a small pencil mark at 2 1/2″ on just ONE of the longer sides. You will CUT from the corner to this mid point on both sides. When you cut the patterned paper, lay the triangle you cut off of the right side, on the right side of the card base and the left triangle on the left side. These will be glued inside the card in this orientation. The center triangle will go on the center of the card front. (Keep it in the same orientation as it was when you cut it. If it does not fit properly, you may need rotate it until you find the correct orientation.)
For the card front, I stamped the flower from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set on a piece of white cards stock and cut it with the coordinating die. I did trim off some leaves and stem so it would fit better.
