STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS
Cut a 5 ¾” x 7” piece from solid cardstock. Place in Cuttlebug® Acanthus Folder. Fold sides around back of folder before running through Cuttlebug®. This will help create fold flaps for step 4.
Using cutting mat and craft knife, carefully carve out areas in the center of the card. Trim top along the wave.
Cut a 5” x 7 ½” piece from two tone flocked cardstock.
Run adhesive along the flaps and fold back. Run adhesive on the back along the bottom. This will create a seal on both sides and the bottom. Attach to piece from step 3.
Cut a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” piece of solid cardstock. Use Cuttlebug® Acanthus to emboss.
Cut a 4 ½” x 6 ½” piece of ivory cardstock. Use Cuttlebug® Acanthus folder to emboss about ½” just at the top and bottom. This piece will be the printed pice of the invitation. Once printing is complete, attach to solid piece in step 5.
Cut a 12” x 1” strip of two-tone cardstock. Use Cuttlebug® Acanthus embossing border folder on one end, remove, turn around (not over), match up pattern and emboss other end. Wrap embossed strip around bottom of card pocket about ¾” from the bottom and attach in the back.
Wrap 16” of ¼” ribbon around bottom embossed strip and tie a bow in front.
Attach 3D flowers to front of pocket. Slide invitation into pocket.
