Ever want to make a card that looks like it took hours to make but didn’t take much time at all? Here it is!
The ‘Magnolia Lane’ card pack and ‘Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes’ have all the pieces to create 20+ cards in a jiffy and without a lot of effort or extra supplies. You can take the packs with you and whip up in a jiffy and know you will have a quality card when finished.
This is no ordinary card. The excitement is inside when you open it and a pop up greets you. This is accomplished by making a step that pops up the centerpiece of the card…like the birthday greeting in the pix.
To make the step that holds your centerpiece:
- Cut a piece of ‘Garden Lane’ designer series paper at least 1/4″ smaller (on all sides) than the card base. If you want to layer another piece under as in the picture increase to 1/2″ smaller on all sides.
- Fold cardstock in half and press with bone folder.
- Find the center point on the fold, mark it and cut a line in 1/2 inch both to the right and left of the mark. Adjust the width according to the size of the item that will be attached.
- Gently push the cutout back to the right and press then the same to the left.
- Glue Centerpice to step for a strong hold
- Attach a writing space below the centerpiece and embellish behind the centerpiece if desired. No stamping, no coloring just fun putting it all together.
This card format can be as simple or complex as you want. The sample adds a bit more color with a solid ‘Apple Green’ piece of cardstock and a piece of ‘Garden Lane’ designer series paper as well as embellishments included in the card pack. The greeting is popped up with dimensionals.
All supplies used are listed below. If you need assistance ordering or do not have a demonstrator , I would be thrilled to be yours. Just drop me a note.
Have fun making your own creations. Would love it if you’d share this blog with others and help me build my readership.
Have a great crafting day.
