Directions:

  1. Score the 7" x 5.5" piece of paper at 3" and fold it. This is your card base.
  2. Trace a line on the bigger flap with .5" then horizontally at 1.5".
  3. You will cut along the line, leaving the 1.5" line without cutting as shown in the picture, and round all the corners.
  4. Now cover the front of your card with the patterned paper. Add the 1.25" strip of paper and the 1" strip over the first one. Add the ribbon all over the card to keep it closed.
  5. Stamp the smaller image on the 3.25" x 5.25" white cardstock and round the corners. Add the tab to the top left.
  6. After stamping and coloring your main image glue it to the mat and add the brads.
  7. Now add the image to the card front using pop dots.
  8. Sign your art!
