Here are the steps to make this card...
With a scoring tool, take the 5 1/2 x 12 inch papers. On the 12 inch side you will score each sheet at 2,4, 8 and 10 inches.
On the 5 1/2 inch side make a mark with a pencil at the 2 3/4 inch mark on both sides of the paper. Do this for both papers.
Fold on the scored lines as shown.
On your scoring board or trimmer, to make the diagonal scored lines for the top of the card you will need to line the mark that you made at 2 3/4 mark and the SECOND mark you scored (the one closest to the middle of the card.) Score at these two marks as shown on both sides and on each papers.
Trim the diagonal scored marks on both sheets of papers as shown.
Next, here are the steps to add the cool "chevron" layers to the card. You will take the pieces shown in the red pattern paper and layer them onto the black cardstock as shown:
|Add these to the outside of the card|
|These small points go on the inside of the card|
Add the white, and black cardstock. Add a 3x3 inch photo to the inside. If you didn't want to add a photo you could add a sentiment here instead. Add ladybug twine around the bottom of the picture. Add the Doodlepops, journaling tag and and the pearls and teeny type letter stickers to this section as shown:
Make a belly band by taking the 1 1/2 x 12 inch paper and scoring at 4 and at 8 inches.
Add the white doily folded in half to the belly band and them add the label. I like to use a shimmery grey ink pad and a soft tissue to add some "chalkboard" effects to my black paper just for fun. I love the effect it gives black papers.Add some adhesive to the back sections of the belly band. Don't make it too tight - just snug enough so it slips easily on and off the card base. Slip the belly band over the card base as shown.
