Score at 1/2" and 5"
DO NOT FOLD YET
Photo 2 ... Using the Versamark Ink Pad and stamp of your choice from teh Circle Circus stamp set; stamp random images on the Bermuda Bay cardstock between the two score lines. There is no need to stamp the whole page (unless you want to).
Photo 3 ... This is how the paper will look after you have stamped it. The Versamark Ink is clear but darkends the stamped image on your paper. Versamark is often used as a watermark ink.
Photo 4 ... Curshed Curry Paper is 4" x 3". Using Rich Razzleberry Classic Stamp Pad ink, stamp the turtle (or other image) from the Nature's Nest stamp set.
Photo 5 ... Here's a look at your finished image on the Crushed Curry cardstock.
Photo 6 ... Using the 3/16" Corner Rounder Paper Punch, round each of the 4 corners of the Crushed Curry cardstock.
Photo 7 ... Photo of the finished look of the turtle piece.
Photo 8 ... Whisper White Cardstock is 6 1/4" x 4 1/4". Using Rich Razzleberry Classic Stamp Pad Ink, stamp a sentiment from the Full of Life Stamp Set. See next photo for placement of sentiment.
Photo 9 ... When you stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock, remember that there will be a ribbon running down the middle from left to right. I placed the greeting in the upper right corner, then added in two images from the Circle Circus set. The remaining white area in the lower right corner will give you space to sign the card and/or leave a small note.
Photo 10 ... Using your Bone Folder, crisply crease the fold lines on the Bermuda Bay Cardstock. You "may need to" trim the back piece just a tiny, tiny bit to prevent the card from bowing. Using Sticky Strip, fold over and adhere the pieces together.
Photo 11 ... Center the Whisper White Cardstock on top of the Bermuda Bay piece. Using the largest hole punch on your Crop-A-Dile punch a hole about 3/4" in and all the way thru all 3 pieces of cardstock (insert, front of card, back of card).
NOTE: If you are holding the two pieces(card & white insert) side by side in front of you, the hole on the card would be on the right side and the hole on the insert would be on the left. By punching them together you guarantee perfect alignment for threading your ribbon thru.
EXTRA NOTE: At our workshop yesterday (thanks to JoanL) we discovered that if you lay your bermuda bay card sleeve and your whisper white insert side by side (just like when the card will open) then close them like a book then punch ...it was far less confusing and also guaranteed perfect placement of the punch hole. Photo 13 shows how these were hooked together with the ribbon - for an extra visual.
Photo 12 ... Again using the larges hole on your Crop-A-Dile punch a hole on the Crushed Curry Cardstock appromately 1/2 way between top and bottom and about 1/2" in.
Photo 13 ... Putting the Whisper White Cardstock inside of the Bermuda Bay card; line up the punch holes. Now feed the Whisper White ribbon from the top of the card thru the insert/sentiment piece, and thru the back of the card. Even the ribbon out so that the ends meet on the right. Ribbon piece for this is 22" long and 1/4" wide.
Photo 14 ... Gently slide the "insert" sentiment piece (Whisper White Cardstock) into the card. Keep your ribbons even when doing this and leave part of the "insert" out of the card. Tie a knotted bow (see photo below). Again, be sure that a small amount of the white insert is showing.
Photo 15 ... Take the 4" piece of ribbon, thread thru the hole of the Crushed Curry Turtle pie and tape the ribbon end to the back.
Photo 16 ... Attach 5 Dimensionals to the back of the Crushed Curry Turtle piece. DO NOT put the dimensionals where the ribbon on the card base will be or will hit it.
Photo 17 ... Center Crushed Curry Turtle piece over the ribbon on card base. Turtle will be a bit more to the right of the card as shown in photo. Using a piece of tape, tape the other end of the ribbon (left side) to the inside of the card. You may find this easier to do IF you pull the insert out a bit to the right before taping the left side.
