I (heart) U times two

6 Apr

Inspired by this weeks Card Positioning System sketch, I created 2 cards using the same materials and just a bit of a tweak. Here is where it began.

I uses my Cricut to cut the three bookplate letters and noticed immediately that the “inverse” image would make another great card. So I created two of them.

Here are measurements and instructions:

  • Cut a 2-1/2″ strip off a 12×12″ patterned paper or cardstock. Lay the strip aside for another project.
  • Cut the remaining rectangle into two 6×9-1/2″ rectangles. Fold each in half, placing the 6″ sides together.
  • Using a 4-1/2″x6-1/2″ mat stack, choose a backing mat and cut the long side at 2-1/2″.
  • Choose another piece from the mat stack and cut the letters in the Cricut, keeping all the pieces.

  • To complete this card, use the larger piece from the mat, bordered on the top and bottom with S4-224 Snowflake Borderabilities Petite die template.
  • Tie a bow through the open die cut border.
  • Connect the three bookplate letters using brads and glue them to the mat.
  • Add the mat to the card using dimensional adhesive.
  • Round the corners of the top of the card.

  • Trim around the cut-out so that all the borders are equal.
  • Use the small mat, the bookplate remnants, the letter cut-outs  and a bow to finish this card.
