Among the Branches

Free Make-n-takes are always a hit at my Customer Appreciation Holiday Open House.  Here is one of three people enjoyed making.  It also fits the category of "Fun Folds & Creative Creases" putting a twist on your traditional "fold it in half card".



Directions for this Fun Fold Card:

  1. Cut Old Olive card Stock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2".  Score at 4 1/4" on long side and fold in half.
  2. Add 4" x 4" piece of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper to card front.
  3. Tie Real Red Cotton ribbon around bottom of card base and tie in knot.
  4. Cut 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" Real Red card stock.  Adhere 3" x 3" piece of coordinating Merry Moments Designer Series Paper on top of Real Red card stock.  
  5. Stamp greeting from Among the Branches stamp set in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch with 2" Circle Punch.
  6. Cut 2 3/8" circle from Old Olive card stock using Circle Framelits Dies Collection.  
  7. Adhere stamped circle to Old Olive circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere layered circles to Real Red circle cut from 2 1/2" Circle Punch.
  9. Adhere layered circles to square and then to top of card base.  You'll want to adhere it so that the finished card is 5 1/2" tall to fit in a standard envelope.
  10. Finally, add a personal message and send to someone special.  Your hand made card will be sure to make him/her smile.
