Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

                                                                                    Scor pal
                                                                               paper trimmer
                                       Image I used "Guilded Christmas Dove" by Robyns Fettish 

Stock paper cut to 4 ¼ x 11 (card base)
Score the card in half to total 4 ¼ x 5 ½
Design paper is cut to 4 x 5 1/4

4 squares from light Stock Paper cut to 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 (for image)
Dark stock paper for framing lighter paper cut to 2 x 2

A strip of coordinating stock paper cut to ¾ x 4 (pull tab hold bar)

Dark stock paper cut to 2 x 9 (for pull tab)

Stamp or print and cut out your images on the Light 4 squares, color them in
I used copics Signo White pen and Jelly Roll "Clear Star" pen
Tape the images to their darker stock frames

Score the long strip at 2”,  2 ¾”, 3 ½”, 4 ¼”

Apply the Design paper to the Card base
Connect the small ¾ “ strip to the lower section of the face of the card with eyelets
Insert the un=scored end of the 9” strip under the ¾ inch stock paper

Place a 2” long piece of score tape in the middle of the top of the ¾ “ strip of stock
With the unscored end 9” strip under the ¾ dark holding strip, fold it forward and attach it down onto the sticky tape

From the bottom going up, adhere each of the squares to the 9” strip just under the score line

Use a 2” circle punch and snip out a small portion of a circle in the center of the bottom of the front of the card
Staple the ribbon to the bottom of the 9" pull tab centered
