T he pretty paper in the Awash In Beauty paper pack can be used on even more cards when you use a narrow strip on your card front instead of a full size card front.
Cut Granny Apple Green card stock 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Cut Granny Apple Green color wash print paper from the Awash In Beauty paper pack 4 X 5 ¼.
Cut a strip of floral print from the Awash in Beauty paper pack paper 2 X 5 ¼.
Cut Polished Pink card stock 2 ⅛ X 5 ¼. Attach the floral print to the Polished Pink card stock.
Use the Stylish Shape dies to cut a banner piece from Basic White card stock to fit your birthday greeting. Stamp birthday greeting with Polished Pink ink. I used a greeting from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set.
Attach the stamped banner to the far right edge of the Granny Apple Green card mat ½” from top of the mat. Attach the Polished Pink/Floral print strip ¼” from the edge of the Granny Apple Green card mat, it will cover up the left edge of the stamped banner piece.
Now attach the Granny Apple Green card mat to the Granny Apple Green card front. Add 3 Iridescent Pearls to the left of the floral piece on your card front.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Basic White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
I chose another print from the Awash in Beauty print paper for my envelope flap. If you want to cover your envelope flap to match your card, you can find directions here: http://www.scrappinwithjoni.com/blogs/covering-your-envelope-flap
