Thanks to all of you who came to the make 'n take this past Saturday at Photo Craft!! It was so nice to see you!!! Here's a sample of the project we did:
It's a little hard to get the idea in print, but basically...the greeting slides out from behind the character as you open the card. I'll try to explain it as best I can...please feel free to write to me if it doesn't make sense :)
We'll need 2 pieces. We'll call the first piece the CARD and the second piece the POCKET. The CARD piece is 2-1/2" wide x 11" long...I'll refer to this piece by either its RIGHT or LEFT side. First, we'll make 3 scored lines from the RIGHT side...the first will be 3" from the right edge...the next 6" from the right edge and the last is 8-1/2" from the right edge. Fold the first scored line inwards...the second scored line inwards and the third fold line outwards (as shown below).
The POCKET piece measures 1-7/8" wide x 3-1/8" long. Make a 1/4" score line along the 2 short sides and a 1/4" score line along the long (bottom) edge. To reduce some of the bulk, you need to cut out 2 pieces as shown below (approximately 3/8" along the bottom fold line).
Next, glue the bottom tab of the POCKET along the RIGHT edge of the CARD:
Lift up the POCKET and put a piece of scotch tape over the tab (this will help the card slide more smoothly).
Now, glue the 2 remaining side tabs of the POCKET down. On the LEFT side of the CARD, cut a small strip off either side of the width...up until the second fold line. Also, put a piece of double stick tape as shown below:
Now you can slide the LEFT side of the CARD into the POCKET: (press down the part that has the double stick tape...notice how cutting off just a small amount off the width of the LEFT side makes it easier to slide it into the POCKET?)
Now, you just need to decorate your card...here are 2 more samples:
When stamping your inside sentiment/picture...make sure you have the card opened all the way, and stamp as close to the POCKET as possible.
Hope you give it a try...it'll make more sense once you start doing it!! Have a great week!!!
