The images I have used are:
"Christmas Angel," "Christmas Candle," "Christmas Scene 1," and "Frankincense, Gold and Myrrh."
sides of this card can be seen, so we decorate both sides. If you are
using a patterned paper or textured card stock, you need to be aware
that each piece of the card has a mirrored side as well, as with the
"Christmas Angel" and "Christmas Candle." I printed them in mirror
Take each of the 10
inches x 6 inches pieces and score at the 4 inch mark, making sure that
if you have texture to your card stock that each piece is scored
differently; one with patterned side down, the other with patterned side
Next you need to rule a line on the unscored section commencing 4½
inch from the bottom of the short side on an angle to the score line
at the 4 inch mark. See photo. Do this to both pieces.
Cut along the drawn line.
an edge punch along the cut side. Check your punch to see where it
ends. You need to make sure you don't punch past the 4 inch score line.
There will be a small amount not punched. Trim that to score line
Placing on a scoreboard, bottom flat edge uppermost, you will already have the 4 inch scored,
now also score at the 6 inch and 8 inch measurements. It is important
to leave this scoring to last, so that the card stock is flat when it
goes through the edge punch.
Do this to both sides. These are your two mirrored pieces to create the card blank.
Place one side over the over, so that the two 4 inch wide sections are on top of each other
and adhere them together. This is the back of your card.
The card will fold back and forth with the contrasting colours. Leave the folding until the panels are on.
that every piece of this card has a mirrored mate, it is probably best
to message each panel separately against where it is going to be stuck.
The best way to get the correct angle is to place the panel slightly
more up, leaving a slight larger gap at the bottom. Using a pen, mark
at the card level, and cut on that line. When centred, the panel will
have the correct slant.
All panels are now cut and you can ink at this stage if you wish.
The top picture shows all panels adhered. The front and back of card looks the same.
second picture shows the centre panel 4 x 6 inches in place. You will
have to trim this piece slightly. Once all the panels are adhered,
fold and crease them.
card is not going to stay closed without some help. Below, I have it
folded and held it down with a ruler. This is where we use the 1¾ x 10 strip of card stock. Curl it around your card to mark where you need to put tape to secure it into a band.
Once secured, you can slip it over the card to keep it closed.
Here is the finished card.
