The Big Forty Card — By: Paris



  1. Cover card front with the burgundy portion of the tape measure paper, trim to size. Tear a 1/4” strip of the large basket-weave section of the tape measure paper and glue across the card front as shown. Cut out a tape measure from the paper and glue it across the card front as well.
  2. Use the template to cut a tag from tan paper. Chalk the edges with brown. Tear a portion of the tape measure paper that includes burgundy, basket-weave and tape measure and glue it across the tag.
  3. Cut out the toolbox and hinges from the Workbench Ephemera collection. Attach them to the card front as shown.
  4. Cut out the “4” and the “0” from the Ephemera collection; chalk and ink the edges. Attach to the tag with foam tape. Glue the tag to the card front to overlap the toolbox. Cut out the knife from the Workbench Ephemera collection and add to the card front, overlapping the tag.
  5. Use a mixture of uppercase and lowercase alphabet stamps to stamp your message on the card front.
