Don't you just love finding a new way to use a tool that you already own? I do! I received a card in a swap (from Susan Campfield) earlier this spring and just had to make one of my own! I didn't have directions, but after inspecting the card closely, and yes, even taking it apart a little (Don't worry. . . I put it back together!), I was able to recreate it with a few twists of my own!
Those that attended my Big Shot Class in June learned how to make this card! The card actually stands up when you set it on a flat surface!
- The largest label framelit is used to cut the card front. (Use a piece of cardstock that is 4" x 5 1/2".)
- Center the framelit over the cardstock so that the top and bottom points will be omitted when you cut it out.
- Emboss as desired, then cut in half vertically.
- Use a 3 1/2" x 7" piece of cardstock to create the folding part of the card.
- Score at 3/8" and 1 3/4" from both of the short ends. Fold in on all score lines.
- Use Sticky Strip on the 3/8" flaps to attach the 2 halves of the card front. (Your card inside will be shorter than the front.)
- Finish your card as you wish!
When you pull the two halves apart, your card will stand!
