It’s time for one of my favorite blog posts. The Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop where we focus on Thank You cards. I love that it is always loaded with inspiration. Who doesn’t like to receive a thank you? Anyone who orders from me during the month of May will receive a thank you card similar to this one.
To begin, cut an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base from Basic Gray card stock and follow the diagram for cutting and scoring.
Now move your cutting blade down to the bottom of the cutting guide. Place the 8 1/2″ side of the card base along the top edge of the trimmer with the cut lines close to the left edge of the paper. Place the edge at the 1″ mark on the left of the cutting guide this time and score from the top edge to the cut line. STOP. Pick up the scoring blade and lower it to the second cut line and score from the line to the bottom edge.
Repeat this at the 2″ mark and 5 1/4″ mark. (The 5 1/4″ mark should line up with the other end of the cut line.)
Now move back to 4 1/4″ and score the middle section of the card base only. Score just in between the two lines you cut earlier.
Fold on the score lines so that the 1st and 3rd lines are mountains and the 2nd score line is a valley. Also fold on the 4 1/4″ score line.
Now cut your patterned paper and do your stamping.
You will need the following sizes of paper:
