Welcome back to Day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas Cards. I am back to the standard sized card today. This is how I have always made my cards as it made the best use of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of card stock giving me two cards from every sheet.
I started with an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock and cut in half (8.5 x 5.5). I then scored it and folded it so that it was 4.25 x 5.5 and used that as my card base. I then took an embossing folder and ran the front of the card through the CuttleBug to give it the raised dot look. I took a strips mitten patterned paper and edge punched the bottom and then adhered it to my card. Using bakers twine I wrapped around the front of the card. Cosmo Cricket makes a sheet of journalling and title cards with most of their collections so I cut one of them out of their Christmas collection and adhered it to a piece of slightly bigger coloured cardstock. I then added some faux stitching and then adhered it to the front of the card. I rounded the top two corners of the card to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card. Come back tomorrow for another card.
