Hey, y’all! This week I have a couple of quick and easy fold-out cards using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club for you!
Both of these cards go together quickly, so if you find you need a card on short notice, either of these will work as a quick way to add a personal touch.
Check out the video to see just how quickly these cards go together – I don’t really have to talk too much because there is more cutting and gluing involved in these two cards than anything else!
Easy-peasy, right? Check out the photos below to get a closer look at the details!
The overall size of this first card is 4”x6” (10.16cm x 15.24cm) – which is what the base rectangle is cut to. The accordion fold section is a 5”x12” (12.7cm x 30.48cm) strip of cardstock, scored at 3”, 6”, 9”, and 10.5” (7.62cm, 15.24cm, 22.86cm, and 26.67cm).
I tucked some sheer ribbon between the 4” x 6” base cardstock and the patterned paper I chose to use so I’d be able to tie the card closed when it was finished.
I cut all of my patterned paper 1/8” smaller than the cardstock which will leave a 1/16” cardstock border to show around the edges.
After my patterned papers were glued down, I added a few strips of the gold trim, using my Tim Holtz Media Tool (a T-square type of tool made to fit the Tim Holtz Glass Mat) to keep my lines of glue straight.
I cut out the flower heart from the papers, inked the edges, added some foam squares, and popped it onto a heart-shaped cardstock piece (also with inked edges), then just added one of the sentiments from the Paper Boutique papers in this month’s kit.
This second fold-out card went together just as easily as the first one. I created a cut file, made for 12” x 12” cardstock, glued the two pieces together, and picked out my papers.
I alternated between blue and pink papers for the panels and used the dies from the kit to create a little extra decoration on the two blue sections.
As with the first fold-out card, I cut my patterned papers down 1/8” to allow a 1/16” border of cardstock.
For a couple of the panels, I pieced together some of the patterned paper instead of cutting into a new piece of paper!
To finish up the front of the card, I added some of the gold trim, a blue rectangle die cut, and a sentiment.
Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope these two cards inspired you and gave you some ideas of what you can make using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!
