An Old Fashioned Hello
By LeNae Gerig
Designer's Tip: Creating a small size card keeps the cute old fashioned phone stamp and greeting all in proportion. Who doesn't love a cute mini card?
- Fold 31/2"x9" Kraft Paper Cardstock in half with short sides together. Place the fold at the top. Tear the right edge of 3"x4 1/4" Happy Days green paper and ink edges. Mat the torn edge with 1"x4 1/4" Happy Days green circle paper with a torn right edge. Ink edge and glue to the card front. Stamp the greeting at the bottom, centered on the green paper.
- Ink edges on 2"x3" Happy Days green circle paper, stamp and emboss the phone. Stamp again on Kraft Paper Cardstock and cut out only the phone and ear piece. Glue over the first image.
- Stamp and emboss the lower portion of the phone and cut out only the dial. Foam tape over the Kraft paper phone. Mat the green circle rectangle with Kraft Paper, leaving a 1/16" border. Ink edges and foam tape to the card front. Knot a ribbon length and Zot( to the top left corner.
- Inside: Stamp and emboss the phone to extend off the lower right edge of the card inside back. Glue the embossed white dial over the original image and trim even with the card edge. Stamp a greeting to the left.
