Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here again sharing a couple of interactive cards that I created using the beautiful papers from the Cards, Tags, & more,
This collection was my 1st one that I’ve had the opportunity to work with and I must say that out of all of what I used I was able to make a variety of multiple projects plus I also have a lot left over for future projects!
I really loved the cut outs and tags the A4 collection packet. With these I got the idea to make them interactive. The card on the left has the sentiment that translates the Italian words into, ” Autumn is the second spring when each leaf is a flower”, and the one on the right says ” Among all the leaves of autumn, I can recognize the only one that, instead of falling, has tried to fly”.
I began by cutting one of the 12×12 kraft card stock that came in the Cards, Tags, & more November kit. I chose to make my cards 5×7 & 4 1/4 X 5, so I cut my card stock , one at 10×7 and the other 8 1/2 X 5 and scored it which my martha stewert scoreboard and tool on 5 and 4 1/4. (photos show only one card but instructions are for both, process for both cards are basically the same)
I picked out 2 different designs from the paper collection and trimmed it 1/8 th of an inch less all around than the kraft base. I also have cut out 6 cut out tags for both cards and the one with the sentiment in the center of the card first, on the other two I left about an 1/8th of an inch lip on the edges of these tags. The only one that I did cut at the exact lines was the center on. Once these other two are cut you will score and fold them to where they will fit on the edge of the center one, once you have done this you can adhere them to the one that will be one the center on the back then adhere it to the design paper on you base.
I hope that I have explained that correctly and that you understand what I was hoping these would turn out like. You just need to end up with the sides being able to open to expose the center sentiments of the card.
I then just added ribbon one one and twine on the other for the closure and cut up also a different color card stock for the inside. If you do want to try to create this but don’t understand my instructions, please feel free to contact me thru social media or my email which is email@example.com & I can try to explain it better. It isn’t hard at all.
I do hope that you enjoyed my very first tutorial for Tres Jolie and that you will give it a try if you purchased this kit. These make great greeting cards with a beautiful secret sentiment inside the center.
See you all soon!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne
