Blank Card


In just minutes, you can have five cards completed with four pieces of card stock. I used "Doodle Heart Valentine" graphics by Laurie Furnell. They can be purchased at pccrafter.com
1. Because the front of the card is doubled, I used 67 lb. card stock. Here is how I printed out the graphics to achieve 5 cards.

2. Cute paper in half at the 5 1/2". Then the piece on the left needs to be cut in half at the 4 1/4".

3. I used the "Love Language" embossing folder in my Cuttlebug on the front panel. I did not want the lace part of the graphic embossed, so I place the edge of the folder along the graphic line.

4. Here you can see a close up of the embossing. You can also see that I used two copies of the border layered together. It does not matter how they meet, because the medallion will cover the connection up.
5. Fold the butterfly portion of the card in half, with the butterfly inside.

6. I lined up the embossed panel and the front of the card together and trim along the second line of the border graphic with mini scallop scissors.

7. Use your favorite glue method to adhere the embossed panel to the front of the card. I love my ATG gun.
8.Make sure you line up how much of the white you want to show. Flip card over and trim the excess from the front panel along the fold. Cut out the medallions.  Add a pop dot to the back of the medallion.

9. Place the medallion on the front border. I used it to cover the junction of the border.
Here you are a completed card. I like the pattern so well I made another set that was wide instead of tall.

Really cute. It sounds really confusing to me. I will have to get together with you and get the directions, or atleast see the card in person to understand. You are so darned crafty. I have not done anything in so long, I don't know if I am creative anymore or not. he hehehehehe
