Below is a drawing/sketch to help you layout the main images for three (3) of the cards. Giving
measurements, shapes and instructions. I hope this is helpful!
Layout your images as shown above; Print your images on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock. Color as desired, I used Copic® Markers. Cut out the images and set to side as we work through each card. Suggested Card Size: 5"x7"
Select a sentiment for the interior of your card, size about 2-1/4"x3" and place about 4-1/4" from the left (Side ways) on an 8.5"x11" portrait layout and approximately 2-1/8" from the top.
Print on the back side of the Green and white striped Winter Berry stock.
Cut 1-1/2" from the left for an 11"x7" rectangle.
Score and fold at 5", 10" and 10-1/8". Score and fold the 5" section 1" from the 5" fold at a 45* angle 4"x4".
Fold both flaps back to expose the sentiment section.
Using a damp brush and Nuvo® Mousse Indian Gold brush raggedly along all four edges as shown.
Cover the sentiment with a circle scrap.
Using a damp brush and Nuvo® Mousse Indian Gold flick speckles on the balance of that section as shown.
Fussy cut your Main colored image from the page printed previously. Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops-Morning Dew to the berries as shown.
Using Nesting® Circle Dies cut a 3" Gold Metallic Cardstock circle and a 4" square, then cut diagonally.
Using Nesting® Circle Dies cut a 2-3/4" Winter Berry Holly Cardstock circle and a
3-3/4" square, then cut diagonally.
Using Gold Glitter pens draw gold lines on both sides of the green stripes on the front and the 1" flap as shown. (You may also want to add some to the speckles in the white stripes.) Trim the flap... 4" as shown.
Adhere one Gold Metallic cardstock triangle
to the folded 4" flap as shown. Then adhere the Winter Berry Holly 3-3/4" Triangle on the Gold triangle as shown.
Adhere the Main sentiment image to the 4"
White Wilton® Doily. Sandwich the 1" flap tip between the doily and the Gold & Holly circles as shown.
Using Liquid Pearls® Rouge I applied droplets to the berries on the Holly Triangle flap. Let Dry.
Using dimensional glue adhere a small 1/8" Gold Metallic© Ribbon to the Holly wreath on the front flap as shown. Let Dry!
