All the way back in August, I mentioned doing a blog post on this card soon, because I used the same punch on that card as I'm using for this card, although how I used it differs from how I will use it here. Although it is now too late to be called soon.
Here is the card when I first made it for my friend. I love to have the words "love you" on cards. However, since this card is mostly white and looks sort of lacy, I thought it would also work fantastically as a wedding thank you card! The only thing you would have to change is which words you use. All the words I used are from Tim Holtz Celebration Words Script dies, which are super fun.
I realized after cutting the paper for the new pair of cards, that I did them a different size than the original (above) card. I decided to just go with it. You choose which you like better (personally, I like the first better). The first card was 4-1/2 by 4-1/4 inches, so there wasn't any un-punched space around the edges. The second was 5 by 4-1/4 inches. Of course, that's after they're folded, so you would cut the paper to 8-1/2 (two times 4-1/4) by 4-1/2 or 5 inches, and then fold it in half with those expert skillz you possess. The overlay paper (as I will call it) should be the size of the card when it's folded.
The pictures basically tell you how to make this card, so my words will be kept at a minimum, but I shall add some in there when the going gets tough. Such as...this below picture is simply of the cards and overlay paper before getting all fancied up.
brush tip sharpie instead just a regular thick sharpie. Haha, or you could simply die cut out of actual colored paper. That's an option too.
Hope y'all enjoyed this tutorial!
