'Tis The Season Card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer’s Tip: Extend both the tag and the ribbon off the edge of the card and trim even with the edges.
- Place the card fold on the side. Ink the edges of 4 1/2” x 6” green striped paper and glue to the card center. Ink the long edges of 10”x1 3/4” holly paper and mat with burgundy dot, leaving a 3/8” border. Glue across the card, 3/4” from the bottom and trim the excess even with the card edge. (You will use the remaining border on the inside of the card)
- Use the pen knife to make a small slit in the fold at the center of the border. Thread 18” of 3/4” wide burgundy ribbon through the slit and tie a bow on the right side of the border.
- Assemble the Santa Papier Tole with foam tape and glue to the left side of the border. Glue the green/burgundy tag at the top of the card, extending off the right card edge. Thread the top of the tag with 5” of 1/8” wide burgundy grosgrain ribbon. Glue ribbon to the left side of the card and trim ends even with card edge. Place Dazzles greeting on the tag.
- Inside: Cut a “v” at one end of the remaining 5”x 1 3/4” border from the card front. Glue the short straight end at the card center top. Glue a green foil label to the center. Place “Merry Christmas” Dazzles and Papier Tole gift “extra art” at the right.
