Inspiration hit me today with my scraps from The Bookworm Collection. I think this card would make great “happy mail” for anyone. Teachers, coaches, grandkids, kids, heck even parents or grandparents. Wouldn’t we all love to hear that we rock!
I cut a piece of Creative Memories White cardstock to 5 1/2 x 12 using the 12 inch Straight Trimmer. I scored at the 4 and 8 inch mark using 12 inch Straight Trimmer and the Multipurpose Tool. I also trimmed a piece of scrap to 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches. You will end up with a card with two flaps that fold in to the centre.
I pulled out our amazing Custom Cutting system and put those circles to work again.
I positioned the medium circle on the left flap and cut out a 2 inch circle. Be sure to have your card base open, because we don’t want to cut all the way through. Next, I closed the card and lightly drew a circle on the second flap (for placement). I used the Custom Cutting System and cut out the second circle.
I was left with this…
Next, I adhered the patterned paper to the back side of the left flap using the Repositionable tape. It’s just for lightly tracing the circle for placement.
I used the handy dandy Custom Cutting System and made a 2 1/2 inch circle on the patterned paper. Once that was cut, I adhered the patterned paper to the front of the card.
My Custom Cutting System had quite the workout today! Made a 2 inch circle using the blue blade and a 1 1/2 circle using the red blade. I used the Bookworm Collection Sticker Sheet to help embellish my card. On the back of the You Totally Rock sticker, I adhered a large foam square and attached it to the red circle, plus one more large foam square for the back of the red circle. The black circle, I adhered to the centre page of the card using the Tape Runner. Super easy to line up, just use the cut circle from the right flap of the card. Then just adhere your red circle embellishment to the black. I also used the music note sticker from the Bookworm Stickers on the front of the card, I adhered it using a large foam square.
The right flap, I used three of the star stickers from the Bookworm Embellishments.
And just in case you haven’t heard it today….YOU Totally ROCK!!!
