I can't show you the exact card from the Hawaii Make N Take as it has a stamp set that has not been released yet and SU does not want us offering any sneak peeks. However, I made two super fast variations of the card so you'd have an idea. I LOVE an alternate to the traditional card shape. This was made lickety-split.
What you'll need:
- 12" x 6" piece of textured card stock
- 12" x 6" piece of our Designer Series Paper (as it has two sides). Also called "DSP"
- Stamp set of your choice
- Bone folder
- Paper Cutter
- Snail Adhesive
- Ribbon of your choice
First, score both the card stock and DSP at 3", 6" and 9".
Trim top of textured card stock at an angle by lining up left side at about 1 1/2" and then ending with a cut about 1/2" from the right side. I first cut it with the right being 0" per the SU instructions and you'll see that in the photo. Wrong. If it's at 0" on the right, you'll never see the DSP peeking thru on that side so I cut it again and took about 1/2" off the right too. You get the idea….
Stamp all four panels as you choose and affix it to the DSP. The set I used on this one is from the Occasions Mini Catalog and it's called "Great Friend".
Now, tear the DSP to keep it a wee bit above the card stock. Fold at the scored lines. This is how it'll look when your recipient displays it.
Once folded, you can tie a ribbon around it before you pop it into an envelope. Isn't this so easy and a nice change from the regular card?
I also made a 2nd card (with the other half of the 12" x 12" paper needed) using another set from the Occasions Mini called "Forest Friends". Rather than a ribbon, I created a band from the remnant of the piece I tore off the DSP. Waste not – want not!
