Loads of Love Truck


I had a workshop last night and this is one of the projects we made for it. This card has a flap that folds down and lays underneath the main image panel for a closure. The main image and its mats are attached to the card with dimensionals just at the bottom of the image to leave the top open to use for the closure.

When you open the card, there is a space for your sentiment and for writing. There is also a slot cut out to insert a gift card or cash.

Here is the wonderful tutorial that gave me the idea to do this for my workshop last night: Dawn's tutorial Thanks for the great tutorial!

Check it out and try one of these.

Recipe:
Cardbase: Certainly Celery
DSP: Bashful Blue
Main image and mats: Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Ribbon: Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain
Punches needed: Word Window Punch, Tag Corner Punch
