Trying to get back into the swing of things.....


I'm really missing my craft room! We are in a rental for the next couple of months and I don't have a space of my own and I don't like it! Don't I sound spoiled! Here's the card holder (to go with the card stack class) that I promised to post a long time ago!

Cut list:
1 – 8 ½ x 7 ¼ - 2 scoops – strawberry smoothie
2 – 1 x 8 ¾ - Flamingo Bazzil
1 – 5 ¼ x 5/8 – Flamingo Bazzill
1 – 3 ½ x 3 – Flamingo Bazzill – for scallop rectangle
1 – 3 x 2 ½ - white

Other supplies:
4 – lg mint green brads
2nd largest rectangle nestabilities from small set to cut and emboss white piece
2nd largest scallop rectangle nestabilities from large set to cut flamingo bazzill
Corner rounder
Whispers ink – grand cranberry and sugarloaf green

Instructions:
1 – Cut and emboss white piece and cut out flamingo bazzill piece
2 - Stamp 3 flowers on white piece
3 – Score Strawberry smoothie paper as follows:
Score 1” along both long sides
Turn ¼ turn
Score at 3 ¾” and 4 ¾”
4 – Cut on the 3 ¾” and 4 ¾” score line up to the 1” score line on both sides (so you should end up with 4 - 1” cuts. Put adhesive on side pieces (1” areas) and stick together to make a box to slip the cards into. Set aside.
5 – Take the guard off of the corner rounder. Use it to create scallops on one side of the 2 5 ¼ x 5/8 pieces and both sides of the 2 – 8 ¾ x 1 pieces. Attach the pieces that are punched on 1 side to the top of the box as a decorative scallop edge. Use the brads to attach the 2 handles. To make it easier to attach the brads, place the handle where you want it to be and use a crop-o-dile to punch a small hole to thread the brad through. Open the back of the brads.
6 – Attach your stamped piece to the front and it’s ready to slip the cards inside and give as a gift!
