Times flies

Colleen with a card that shows "falling for the season".  It is hard to believe that fall is upon us already.  I have made a card that looks awesome standing but folds nicely so you can mail it.



This is what the card looks like folded up


The papers that I used are:

This card takes a little time to make but it is so worth it.

Start with your colored cardstock and cut one piece 4 1/2" x 12" and cut the second piece 1" x 4 1/2".

  

Score every 1 1/2 " or at  1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 6", 7 1/2", 9" and 10 1/2".  Now turn the paper along the short side and score at 1 1/2" and 3".

Now take the smaller piece of cardstock and score it down the middle at 1/2".


 

Now you are going cut along the lines I have marked with an "X" and remove that area.


This is what it will look like when you cut that area out.


Next cut along the line indicated with the black lines.


To help you know where to put your glue I have marked a capital A and lower case a and capital B and lower case b.  So match the a's up and the b's up and you should have it glued together.



Now take the little piece that you folded in 1/2, which is called the hinge.  Put glue on each side of the fold and adhere one side at a time to the block piece.  Now it is ready for you to decorate.


This card is great because you could make it special for any occasion.  I used it to have a fall theme and used my punch to create the leaves.

Thank you for looking and I hope you take the time to check out the wonderful products in the store.
