A Different card template


I love learning new card templates and folds. Sometimes I get stuck in the rut of using the same old "fold in the middle" template and enjoy trying a new task. This was a template that I learned at a stamping retreat in September. The cardstock, by Bazzill, is cut 4 1/2 inches X 9 1/2 inches. Score the long side of the cardstock at the 4 1/4 mark and the 8 1/2 mark. You'll have a 1 inch border left to fold over onto the card front. I decorated this simply by adding Basic Grey patterned paper and a large silk flower that can be purchased at any hobby store. The Mays Art ribbon wraps around the back/ front of the card and is secured underneath the flower with a large Queen & Company coordinating brad. I left the inside of the card blank and will add a sentiment when needed. Thanks to Melissa Baldwin, of The Stamping Studio, for using this card as one of her "make and takes" at the fall retreat.
