Hi! Sorry I’m a few days late, but I am back with a card featuring the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper pack today. I LOVE this paper – it is gorgeous and perfect for Fall cards and Birthdays.
Isn’t this card gorgeous? The only stamping is the sentiment which is heat embossed in White.
Ok, so if you haven’t done the Book Binding Fold yet, here we go – its pretty easy – but if you don’t understand something, please leave a comment and I’ll be happy to answer your question.
- Basic Black – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – score at 3 3/4″ and 4 1/4″.
- Merry Merlot Card Stock – 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
- Designer Series Paper – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
Wrap a piece of Black and White Gingham Ribbon in the 1/2″ between the two score lines. Fold in on the 4 1/4″ as you normally would to close the card. Fold back on the 3 3/4″ score line. This is now where your card will open. Run Tear and Tape over the Ribbon on the inside of the card – you may need 2 strips – and then close the card to “bind” it.
Cut the Merry Merlot into 2 pieces at 2 3/4″ along the 4 3/4″ side. Cut the Designer Paper at 2 1/2″ from the top along the 4 1/4″ side. Attach the Designer Paper to the Merry Merlot. Attach the two pieces to the Base of the card leaving an opening between them for the sentiment.
Stamp your sentiment in VersaMark ink between the two images. Sprinkle with White Embossing powder and heat emboss.
Attach a piece of Basic White paper 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside of your card.
I shared this technique with a group of ladies and they all loved it. I hope you do, too!
Thanks for stopping by!
