Where Has The Weekend Gone?

I can't believe it's already Sunday afternoon!! Hope you all had a great weekend!! If you have a little time to stamp tonight...maybe this will give you a little inspiration.

Start with a 6"x 9" piece of cardstock...use one that's printed on both sides (nothing too dark or busy though because you'll be stamping right over the print).

Fold it into 3 panels using a fan fold.

Then stamp #5001 (Dog in Flowers) somewhere just below the middle of the front panel...and #5005 (Bear in Flowers) at the top of the 3rd panel.

Flip the card over and stamp #5003 (Cat in roses) on the middle panel...somewhere midway between the dog and the bear (you'll have to hold the card up to the light to see the 2 stamps on the front).

Now just cut the card as shown...cutting around each of the stamps. Don't worry about making straight cuts...part of the charm is in the uneven cut. Then with the card folded I punched a 1/8" hole in 2 places (punching through 2 layers close to each fold line), then finish it off by tying a ribbon through the punched holes (don't tie it too want to make sure you can still open and close the card).

Bonus idea!! Add double stick tape to the side and bottom of the front panel to make a little pocket. Then you can use it as a money card or gift card holder!!
