Fun Fold Happy Birthday!-tutorial

Here is a recent card we made at one of my classes!  Its a little bit of work, but oh so pretty!

Lets get started:

Basic Black 4.25 x 5
Melon Mambo 8.25 x 5.25
Framelit Labels Collection Die

Score your Melon Mambo at 4 and 6-1/8, fold on all the score lines

Put your Label framelit on the 6-1/8 score line as shown.  I used post-it notes to hold it in place.  Put it on your cutting plate and your closed multipurpose platform. Carefully line it up with your score line.

Place your 2nd cutting plate on top of only the section shown.  The edge of the score line and the edge of the cutting plate should line up.  Carefully run it through your big shot.  You should have 1/2 of a die cut frame along your score line.

Fold the frame section back and Perfect polka dot emboss the section as shown. Don’t forget to change your Multipurpose platform to have 1 tab open.  

Stamps: Apothecary Art
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Basic Black
Ink: Black Stazon
Markers Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive

Accessories: Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, Labels Collection framelits, Black Scallop polkadot ribbon.

Edgelit Cards & Tote: Free Tutorial

TIP:  Edgelits work best with a set of Brand new cutting plates.  if your cutting plates are warped form lots of use, perfect positioning will be harder.

To make the Wrap:  8.5 x 5.5 -two pieces.  Score one short side at 1 inch then turn and trim the other edge with the edge lit.  repeat on 2nd piece.  adhere the 2 piece together by overlapping the scored sections.  


Option 1: 6 x 12 piece of card stock.  With the short side at the top of your scoring tool, score at 1″, turn and score at 1″, 5.5, 6.5, 11

Option 2:  two pieces of 6 x 6.75 card stock.  with the short side at the top of your scoring tool, score at 1″, turn and score at 1 and 5.75, repeat on 2nd piece and fit the 2 pieces together to form the box.
