Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea
Good Monday morning. This week we are going to make a Sleeve card. You make and decorate the sleeve and slip a sentiment into the sleeve.
To make the sleeve:
One piece of card stock 5"x7"
One piece of card stock 6" x 71/2"
Score 1/2 " in on both 7 1/2 inch sides and one 6 inch side
Fold in on score lines.
On the top front of the 5x7 inch piece, adhere a 1 1/2 inch coordinating piece of designer paper.
Using a circle punch, punch a half circle opening in the center of the top.
Adhere strong adhesive to the three folded in sides of the back piece and attach the
front piece with the half circle cutout at the top, to the back piece.
To make your insert:
One piece of plain colored card stock cut at 4 3/4"x6 3/4". Using a border punch, make a decorative edge on the bottom. Adhere a piece of colored text weight coordinating paper with a sentiment stamped on it, so it does not show at the opening of the sleeve.
Decorate the sleeve and the insert so they match.
The bunny stamp (Inkadinkado) was inked with Versafine, Onyx and embossed with clear embossing powder. The ovals were cut with Nestibilities dies. I distressed the edge with distress inks, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Vintage Photo. The flowers are Prima with pearl centers from Kaiser.
I colored with Copic Markers. For the insert, I stamped the image (Northwoods) on pink text weight paper and trimmed the edges with the same gingham as I used for the sleeve (Martha Stewart) The white insert card stock was punched at the bottom with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Close up of cute bunny!
Hope you give this card a whirl. It would work great for invites too.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday. Until later..........
