Papertrey Posse Mini Challenge #2
Since I saw the challenge over at Papertrey challenge I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I was sitting at my desk this morning and wanted to play around with my new dies and that is how this card came about. I first cut the jar out with clear cardstock to make the see through jar. I went through my PP and found this paper in my Nook and Pantry pack which made me think of strawberry jam and cut it using the same die. I still wasn't sure what I wanted to do for the challenge which is to do some kind of folded card or project. This is actually a 3x3 tri-folded card. I started with a 6x9 piece of CS and scored the 9" side at 3 & 6. Then scored the 6" side at 3". I cut the top left and right squares on the 9" side leaving a 3" square in the center. Folding the left and right squares over and the top square down. I decided to cut off corners of the top square to make it look more like a flap. I measured down an 1" on each side and from the center of the bottom I marked a 1/4 " on each side and then cut from the marks to cut off the corners.
This is the card open to show the how the cards folds up.
Here is the card fully open.I was thinking this would be a perfect little gift card to go along with a gift of strawberry jam since the inside has a little image from Vintage Picnic of a couple of strawberries.
That is about it for me today.
Have a great day and as always Thank you for stopping by,
