- SCORE a 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of C/S on LONG SIDE @ 5-1/2″; turn and CUT on SHORT SIDE @ 4-1/4″. Repeat for as many cards as you’ll be making. Burnish fold lines with BONE FOLDER.
- CUT 6″ x 6″ WRAPPED IN PLAID S-DSP on either side at 4-1/4″+
- With larger piece, CUT on LONG SIDE at 3″; layer two pieces together and CUT at 2-1/4″, 1-1/2″ and 3/4″. You should have (8) 3/4″ x 4-1/4″ pieces.
- With smaller piece (from initial cut) CUT on the LONG SIDE at 4-1/4″, discard small piece. Rotate and CUT on SHORT SIDE at 1-1/2″ and 3/4″. Keep narrow scrap to decorate the inside of your card. You should have 10 total pieces!
- CUT a strip from the GOLD FOIL SHEETS that’s slightly higher than the height of your punched piece. Start at one end, keep cuts close together and move punch along strip- punching out as many pieces as you need. Goes super fast, with minimal waste!
- For the Pine Tree Punch, cut a strip 2-1/4″ wide
- For the Sprig Punch, cut a strip 1-3/4″ wide
- Place card front at inside corner. Temporarily place a 3/4″ DSP strip about 1-1/4″ below the top fold line. Position sentiment below DSP, centered to right (see photo). Remove DSP.
- Ink stamp from ITTY BITTY CHRISTMAS with DELICATA GOLDEN GLITZ METALLIC PIGMENT INK PAD, stamp on card front. To create a bolder image, repeat stamp as many times as desired. Set aside to allow ink to dry. Repeat on all cards you’re making
- OPTIONAL: Stamp greeting on the inside of card as desired. Stamp ‘watermark’ stamp on back.
- This can also be hand stamped if you don’t have the Stamparatus… then put it on your next order… you will LOVE it!
- Adhere DSP to card front with Multipurpose Glue or SNAIL Adhesive
- Adhere punched image with Stampin’ Dimensionals (or Glue for Sprig Punch)
- Sign the back- you’re done… now you’ve got lots of time for writing a personal message and addressing the envelopes 🙂
