Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need a slim line base in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut 4″ from the 11″ side of an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, giving you 8-1/2″ x 7″. Place the cardstock on a scoring board with the short side (7″) at the top and score down the middle (3-1/2″), fold and now you have a slimline base!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – White, cut to 8-1/2″ x 7″ (scoring at 3-1/2 on 7-inch side) and 8-1/2″ x 4″ (scoring at 2-inches on 4-inch side, then cutting at 2″ making it a folded 2″ x 2″ mini card) and lastly a 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece.
  • Cardstock – Red, 8-1/2″ x 11″ for the envelope.

Place the 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock down with the short side at the top. Draw a wavy line down the card on either side. Within the center of the two lines and not super close to them, stamp the Mini Poinsettia in Glamorous ink, then stamp two more times near the first without re-inking.

Stamp the Tiny Poinsettia in Tulip Red ink in between the other stampings. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in Shady Lane ink, rotating the stems toward the flowers. Stamp the Leaf again without re-inking for a variation in color. Stamp the Mini Berry Branch in Falling Leaves ink, rotating the stems toward the flowers.

Cut along the curvy lines. Edge with the gold gel pen.

Open the white card base and slip into an embossing folder equally spaced and meeting in the middle and butted against the fold of the card. Run through embossing machine.

Stamp the sentiment on the 2″ x 2″ mini card in Glamorous ink and edge with the gold gel pen.

Wrap the red ribbon around the card and tie a bow. Glue the stamped panel to the embossed card base  

Warm the Nuvo Drops with body heat (example – by placing them between your legs), and squeeze into drops along the outside edge on both sides of the card. Set aside to dry (48 hours). Stick the mini card into the ribbon.

To make the envelope, place an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of red cardstock onto the Scor-Pal with the short edge at the top. Score at 2-1/2″ and 6-1/2″. Rotate to the long side and score at 1-1/2″ and 10-1/2″.

Cut all the corners where the score lines meet. Place the paper on the with the short side at the top, but rotate it so the largest flap is at the top. Place the T-square along the long outer edge and mark at 1/4″ on both sides. Place the ruler on that mark and rotate the ruler so that it points to the corner where the flap starts. Draw a line and cut along this line. Do this on both sides. For the short bottom flap free hand draw a line from the corner where the flap starts and cut. Using a 1/2″ corner rounder, cut the corners of the larger flap. Fold all score lines with the bump in the inside. The smaller flap is the bottom of the card. Glue the side flaps in and the bottom fold up.
