- Cardstock – White
The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
For the other cuts you’ll need:
- Cardstock – White, A2 Card Base
- Cardstock – White, cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
Adhere the 1/8″ double-sided tape along the edge of the card base. Set aside. On the smaller panel of paper crisscross double-sided tape, but don’t over lap. The reason you don’t want to overlap is because it will show up when you apply the foil and will be a visible hump. The way I crisscrossed the tape was to cut an angle at one end of the tape and butt that up with a strip that was already on the card. I let that angle dictate where my tape lines went.
Leave the tape backing in place and then stamp the various stamps of the Perfect Layering Circles Set all over the card in whatever colors you like. Then stamp the individual stamps inside of the colorful circles. I stamped all my images in the Nautical Blue ink.
Turn on your laminating machine and set to, “Foil.” Cut two pieces of foil a bit bigger than the card base and stamped panel. Remove the backing from the tape and gently place the foil (shiny side up) on the tape. Do this for both pieces. Place one piece in a carrier pouch (or a piece of paper folded over) and insert in the laminating machine. Repeat for the other piece. Once out of the laminating machine, gently peel away the foil. Whatever was stuck to the tape will remain and you can store the other away for use at another time.
Glue the stamped panel to the card base.
For the envelope, I just stamped three circles and then chose individual stamps to stamp on top of the circles in the same ink as before.
