New Operation Write Home Fall Card
The card is a standard A2 card.
1) Before I started to do anything with my materials, I have to play around with some sketch ideas. Hence the first few pictures. I finally decided what I wanted to do and distressed the front and back of the card using Distress Inks: Barn Door; Tea Dye; and Old Paper.
2) Then I cut the brown cardstock to fit the front of the card along with a piece of same for the back using 3 1/2" by 4" measurements.
3.) Using a 2" scalloped circle punch I cut one from orange cardstock.
4.) Then I made my bows using a fork(yes a fork) with 3/16" orange and brown checked ribbon. Using the fork is a great way to make perfect small bows for your cards.
5.) I added the ribbon over the orange scalloped punchout.
6.) I then added a bronze brad on each corner.
7.) Using some preglittered fall colored leaves I attached them together with a bronze brad just below the bow. (these leaves were 2", the ones used on the back of the card were 1")
8.) I then attached the entire brown piece using my handy dandy ATG adhesive .
9.) For the back I attached the brads first .
10.) At the bottom I attached the small pre glittered leaves on each corner.
11.) It doesn't show it, but I going to mat the Operation Write Home label and attach it to the center of the top piece on the back of the card.
Now onto my next card.
