Our last project from Michelle!


Today is the final day of January Design Team projects!  Let's end with Michelle's beautiful, punch out card!

Authentique Congratulations Card

Supply List for Card

Featured Collection: Authentiques’s “Gathering” Collection
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Papers: Authentique
Stickers: Authentique
Ink: ColorBox Chalk
Pen: Pentel
Brads: Making Memories
Other: I hand cut out the hearts

This is a cute little card made from a base piece of 4 x 12" cardstock. I covered it with a strip of 2 x 12" piece of Authentique's patterned paper and a thin piece of coordinating cardstock. I decorated it with a sticker, a die cut and some brads. The fun part is how you fold this card.

Going from one edge to the other, I folded the card at 2", 4", 8" and 10" marks. I drew in half a heart along the 2" and 10" folds and cut it out, which opened into a whole heart because of the fold. You can try using a punch also.

This is a quick card to make and you can change it up for other occasions, for example Valentine's Day is coming up. You can also change the shape of the cut out, like into a square and make that a present for a birthday card. The possibilities are endless. I like trying out new shapes and folds for cards, so this was a fun departure from the norm.

I love this card and can't wait to try it for a birthday, maybe with a cake or cupcake?

Thank you so much, Michelle!

Please check back in this Saturday  - we'll be sharing our January Challenge and asking you to play along!

Have a great remainder of the week!
