A cute Christmas Card for you today-simple and easy if you need to get some done quickly!
It uses the Collar Card Technique.
Here is a video showing how easy it is to create one of these cards.
Garden Green Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side, 2″ circle
Real Red front panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/4″ Circle
Very vanilla outside: 3-3/4″ x 5″, inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/2″ square for tree
Toile Tidings DSP: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Here is a collar card I did a few years ago. Notice I used a piece of DSP measuring 4″ x 5-1/4.”
(OMGosh- it’s my 29th anniversary- I almost forgot until I posted this- I wonder if Jim will remember?)
Hey kids, we are winding up SALE-A-BRATION 2016 this week on Thursday, March 31st so… “PUT YOUR PARTY PANTS ON” if there is anything else you are looking at and want a cute Sale-a-bration item to boot with a $50 order!
You will see a lot of cards using this “collar card” technique if you google it.
My friend, Linda Heller, inspired me with this design using the Balloon Bouquet punch
along with the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.
It is a 48 sheet paper stack with 4 sheets each of 12 designs of 12″ x 12″ designer series paper in great colors- both bright and neutral.
I used the fun Party Pants Sale-a-bration stamp, too!
You can see how I carried over the designer series paper and the balloon theme
to the inside of the card:)
For this card, I simply took a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of designer paper and placed the 5 1/4″ side up against the top of my Stampin’ Trimmer. I then slid the left edge of the paper to the 2 5/8″ mark on the top ruler of the trimmer. I then used the cutting blade to cut down from the top to the 1 1/2″ mark on the clear sliding ruler that the blade is guided through. After you make the cut, you just fold back the two collars exposing the opposite side of the designer paper. To make the folding a bit easier, you can use a ruler to line up the each corner with the middle cut to get a clean fold down each side.
