Caring Thoughts with Tidings of Christmas
T idings of Christmas paper pack has some great papers for Christmas cards, but it also has this pretty neutral print that can be used for other kinds of cards.
Card Base: Cut Sahara Sand 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Soft Succulent paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Pay attention to orientation of print and cut Sahara Sand print paper from Tidings of Christmas paper pack 3 ¾ X 5. NOTE if you also want to cover your envelope flap, FIRST cut a 2 ¼ x 6 piece from your print paper. The remaining piece will be 3 ¾ X 6, trim this piece for your card front.
Attach Sahara Sand print paper to the Soft Succulent card mat. Cut 16” of Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon. Wrap ribbon around the lower edge of the card front and knot to the right side of your card front. I used a glue dot to hold the knot in place. Attach card front/mat to Sahara Sand card base.
Stamp Caring Thoughts sentiment on Very Vanilla paper with Soft Succulent ink. Die cut with die from Ornate Frames. Cut a mat of Soft Succulent from the next size die in Ornate Frames. Attach the Soft Succulent die cut piece under the ribbon on the left side of the card front. Attach the stamped Vanilla die cut piece over the Soft Succulent mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Very Vanilla 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
