Hello! I would like to share a folio-type Christmas card that I created with the beautiful Away In A Manger 12 X 12 paper pack. I included tags for the inside, but you could easily tuck a gift card inside!
Designer Paper: Away in a Manger (Echo Park)
Red Sequins, Twine, doily and buttons
Hot glue gun
Card base: Black cardstock 6 X 12 inches Scored at 6 Inches
Front of the card, here is the layers measurements
Back layer (Floral) :5 5/8 X 5 5/8 *Place Doily on UR corner of floral paper and a border strip on the bottom of the floral layer, before gluing the next layers on floral layer.
Next layer(Burgundy) : 4 ½ X 4 ½
Black panel behind it : 4 5/8 X 4 5/8
Cut apart panel : 4 X4
Black panel behind it : 4 1/8 X 4 1/8
Medallion: 1 ½ X 12 inch strip of the burgundy pattern paper ....Score every ¼ inch then fold Accordion style. Next attach a piece of tear tape to one end and attach the ends together forming a circle. Take a 1 inch punch and punch 2 circles of scrap of the burgundy paper. Glue with a glue gun to the top and this will hold the medallion in the circle shape. I added a sticker to the top.
Finally, I added red sequins to the flowers of the wreath and another floral sticker to the upper right hand corner of the inside panel.
INSIDE OF CARD:
Top layer(Sprigs & Berries) :5 5/8 X 5 5/8
Cut apart: 4 X 4
Black panel behind it :4 1/8 X 4 1/8
Border strip: 6 Inches long
Bottom layer (floral) : 5 5/8 X 5 5/8
Pocket (Burgundy stars) : 6 ½ X 3
Glue on the sides and bottom of this and attach to bottom of card to create a pocket.
I added some of the cut apart borders on the pocket to add some interest.
Black cardstock : 3 X 4, 2 ½ X 5, and 5 ½ X 3 ¼
I cut the corners with the Angle Chomper and added holes at the top to create tags. I decorated the tags with cut aparts, stickers, twine and buttons.
