By Card Making & Scrapbooking Contributor
Friends like fashion, shopping and spending time with each other, but sometimes that is impossible to do. Send this card to someone that you are thinking of or are wishing you could be spending time with doing some shopping. Add a little note with your shopping itinerary and maybe she’ll decide to join you!
Begin the card by creating a card base from card stock (black card stock used) that measure 7” long by 10” wide on a paper trimmer and score it in the center using a scoring board. Fold it in half at the score line so that you have a 5” x 7” base.
Trim the patterned paper to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”. The Couture Chic pattern from the Couture Line by Graphic 45 was used on this card. Attach it to the card, using a tape runner, so that it is slightly off centered to the left. The top left corner should meet up to the left edge of the card base. The top of the paper may reach above the card base just a little.
This is what the card will look like at this point. See how the patterned paper is slightly off center from the rest of the card base?
Create the sentiment layer by using the Dress Form Embossing Folder by Sizzix and a die cut machine. This piece was created using a blue sheet of card stock from Paper Accents. Cut the embossed card stock down to 3 3 ½” x 5 5/8” so that it will fit at an angle along the left edge of the card.
Share this card with your best friends to say that you are thinking of them. Use it to invite them on a shopping trip for some added fun to the day! Any way that you choose to use this will bring some fun into someone’s day.
