Hello everyone. Welcome to the final day of Christmas in July! Today's card was created without an electronic cutting machine, using only my 12 inch paper trimmer. To me this card is all about the images and the message!
For about a year I have owned the Close To My Heart stamp set, GLORY TO GOD (#D1483, retail price $17.95), a ten piece religious stamp. But for the last year I have struggled with finding the perfect card to showcase these fabulous stamps.
Recently while packing to go to go away for a few days I was looking at my tri-fold shutter card sample and it suddenly hit me that Bethlehem would look fabulous stamped across the top middle section of a tri-fold card!!! A quick measure told me that Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus would fit on the cover of the card and I KNEW I had to make this card!!! In fact, I made 8 of this card!!!
My simple steps to creating a tri-fold card are detailed in the next photo - a quick reference sheet I made for someone to use. I begin with a 12x12 inch sheet of cardstock and after cutting it in half, I follow the steps on the photo. You can save the photo and print it if you need detailed instructions.
Using the trimmer, light blue Bo Bunny cardstock was cut to fit the small sections of the card. I used dark blue ink by Close To My Heart and finished the card with a touch of gold Stickles.
Thanks for hanging in with me this week. I enjoyed our week of Christmas in July - even if the daily temperatures did average 100 degrees here in South Carolina!!
