Feels Like Home – Project 5

Happy Stampin’ Friday!

Instructions

Begin by scoring the card base at 4-1/4″ and again at 2-1/8″.

With a bone folder, fold and burnish each of the score lines.

Using the largest frame die, cut a frame out of Very Vanilla.

On Basic White, stamp image in Tuxedo Black, then cut out using second largest frame.

Color in image.

When using the Light & Dark markers, begin with the dark marker in the shaded areas and use the light marker to draw the color into the open areas of the image.

Emboss the front of the card base. Make sure the folded edge is lined up with the edge of the embossing area and not at the edge of the folder. This will ensure that the entire card front is embossed.

Adhere the colored image to the Very Vanilla frame.

Now, adhere image layers to the card front. Only place adhesive on the bottom half of the image to allow the card front to fold to form the easel.

Center on the card front and adhere.

Adhere the bottom inside panel to the inside of the card base.

Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla and adhere to the sentiment mat.

Add Stampin’ Dimensionals (I used the edge pieces) and mount on the lower half of the inside panel.

Cut an 8″ length of ribbon and tape to the card base as shown by wrapping the ribbon to the inside of the card base.

Add the two smaller inside panels to cover the top of the inside card base. One panel will cover the taped ribbon edges.

Cut a 6″ length of ribbon and tie a shoelace know on the front of the card around the existing taped ribbon piece. Trim the edges.

Add three Pearl Basic Jewels around the image.
