I am so excited about today's posting. This is another first for me. I have always posted cards and this falls into the "anything but a card" category. Let me give you some background on this project before I show it too you. I am also going to have the tutorial for this for you. My friend and fellow Rapid Stamper Club Member, Barbara Borthwick has been visiting family for the past two months, gasp! Can you tell she's retired? :) Anyway, while she was in California visiting one of her children, she went to a Stampin' Up class and made this project. I am calling it a card wallet. I am sure it has another name, but alas, I don't know what it is. I fell in love with it when she showed it to me. I borrowed it from her; scrutinized it; measured it, etc., etc... No, I did not take it apart! And then I made one!! I messed up the first time, forgot something and had to start over. Breathe, Terri! So, I was more patient and didn't mess up this time! I love the way it turned out!
Here is my card wallet:
Here it is opened up.
There are two sheets to this project.
Sheet 1 - is 12 x 10
Sheet 2 - is 8 1/2 x 6 6 1/2
Sheet 1 - on the 12" side: score at 5 3/4, 6 1/4
Fold your score lines on sheet 1. I folded the inside lines first, then folded the bottom score line.
Tape sheet 2 to the right side of sheet. (It should be taped to the outside of the 6 1/4 score line. Fold your score lines on sheet two. This is the flap.
And here is the final product again:
Here are the items I used:
Paper: Pear Pizzaz, 12x12 sheet and 81/2 x 11 sheet
Early Espresso CS, and Greenhouse Gala DSP
Other: Chocolate Chip Ribbon
self adhesive velcro dots, sticky strip
I hope I didn't confuse you too much! If you have any questions, please fee free to email me!
Have a wonderful weekend!
