Here is my 6x6 Wrap Around Notecard
For todays card I wanted to showcase our 6x6 designers series paper (dsp) and our notecards. There are 48 sheets of gorgeous paper in these little packs, 12 different designs, 4 pieces of each design - that's a lot of creative options! I often grab a notecard when I want to send a quick card, with the addition of this paper you have a card in minutes.
Here's the card details & the trix & tips:
* Start with a notecard and cut an inch off the front side - don't be afraid to cut up the card, it is thick cardstock and a perfect 1 inch piece ready for a sentiment in future use, or on the same card if you choose.
* Here's the twist, cut an inch off the bottom of the 6x6 dsp, (keep it for future use, perhaps a scrappy strip technique card) so that it matches the 5 inch size of the notecard. Wrap the 6x5 dsp completely around the notecard, the paper will need a bit of 'give' at the fold line, so line it up with the back side of the card and let it fall into place on the front - you will probably have an 1/16 of an inch smidge of white on the front edge. To assist the dsp to find its fold you can gently score it at 2 1/2. Let it rest and fall into place and then use your bone folder to crease it once you have it lined up.
* I choose to put Mutipurpose Liquid Glue on the three open edges of the back of the notecard, and not glue at the fold line - it helps to evenly line up the dsp with the notecard. Then I add glue to the front three open sides of the notecard, again avoiding the fold line so the dsp can settle in place.
*Stamp your sentiment on the visible inside side strip of the notecard or add a strip of complementary paper to the inside and highlight the dsp.
Here are a few others that I've made with our 6x6 dsp pack.
