card holder

Here's the card holder we made for the cards in the Jewel insect class. Perfect if you want to make them into a gift!
The tag with the bumble bee was added inside simply because she was too cute not to and she looks AWESOME with her body covered n yellow stickles!
Here are some general info and instructions. I'd love to add a template, but it's on paper and I have no idea how to make a temlplate on the computer!

1 – 10 x 6 – Leapfrog Bazzill
1 – 6 ½ x 4 ½ - Pear Bazzill
1 – 2 x 2 – cream woven texture cardstock
1 – 2 x 2 – Leapfrog Bazzill

Other supplies:
22” green plaid ribbon
3” printed pink ribbon
Champagne versamark Dazzle pad
Cranberry adhirondack ink
Black stazon
Yellow and stardust stickles
1 ¼” circle punch
1 3/8” circle punch

General instructions:
1 – Score the 10 x 6 Leapfrog bazzill piece at 4 3/4 “ and 5 ¼”. Stamp the butterfly on front. Ink the stamp with the dazzle pad and then only the butterfly with the cranberry ink and stamp.
2 – Score the 6 ½ x 4 ½ Pear Bazzill piece at ½” and 1” along the 2 short sides and 1 long side.
3 – Remove corners and fold along score lines.
4 – Attach to holder
5 – Stamp bee onto cream 2 x 2 piece. Punch out with 1 ¼” punch. Punch leapfrog 2 x 2 piece with 1 3/8” puunch. Layer and attach to the inside of the holder. Attach ribbon knot with a glue dot. Decorate with stickles. Set aside to dry.

Enjoy and have a great day!
