hello sunshine

I’ve been designing this card in my head for days – I love that I got it made before the idea faded away!

Tonic Studios – Border System & Edger 1 Punch

We’ve Got Your Sticker “Happy” by SRM Press & Togetherness papers by Cosmo Cricket

1 – card base: light grey cardstock 4″ X 10 1/2″ (score at 5 1/2 – front is 5″)

2 – light grey: (2) 2″ X 4″, medium grey: (2) 2″ X 4″ & 2 1/2″ scalloped circle,  dark grey: (2) 2″ X 4″, cream: 2″ circle, blue dot pattern: 2 1/4″ X 4″, yellow/grey dot pattern: 2″ X 4″

3 – place the blue border system guides at 1 3/8″ on each side

4 – for all six of the 2″X4″ grey strips: place centered in border system (with the cardstock aligned at 2″ on the left and right) – make the first punch, move to the left until the left edge of the scallop is aligned with the center line in the blue guide, punch again, repeat to the left once more – repeat this process on the right side until you have a complete scalloped edge

5 – adhere each of the matching grey strips together, with one just slightly above the other

6 – adhere the darkest grey strips to the very bottom of the front of the card (when the card is closed, they should be even with the bottom of the back of the card), layer the medium and light grey cardstock above as shown

7 – add “hello sunshine” sticker, patterned papers, and ribbon

8 – adhere the bird sticker to cream cardstock and punch out using a 2″ circle, attach to a 2 1/2″ grey scalloped circle, add to the card with the left edge of the circle over hanging the left edge by 1/4″.
