A Creative Greeting Card with Unique Slant : Video Tutorial

This creative greeting card made with scrapbook paper/designer series paper includes a bi-fold fancy fold. I opted to cover the entire card base with designer paper which eliminates a lot of background stamping. Wait until you see all the cards I’m sharing in today’s video!

A Creative Greeting Card: Details – Layout #1

The slant on this card starts on the left and goes all the way to the top right. Mark off your starting point and use your trimmer for perfect alignment. The photo template I’ve included below has all the details.

Adhere the designer paper to the cardstock before cutting and scoring. This will insure that everything is properly aligned. Be sure to use liquid glue to adhere the two pieces. I found that adhesive created too much buckling. Once you’ve scored, all that remains is the “fun part” – decorating! I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch to highlight this beautiful poppy watercolor-inspired paper.

This card will require you to create your own custom envelope. If you don’t mind a little extra space, a business size #10 envelope will work, too.

A Creative Greeting Card: Idea #2

The Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper includes beautiful foil accents on one side of some of the sheets. And as if that wasn’t enough, the other side boasts floral patterns, perfect for all kinds of occasions.

  • The belly band for the daisy card is cut 1″ x 8 1/2″ and creased along the edges as it was folded.

A Creative Greeting Card: Layout #2

Look closely and you’ll see that this layout is a bit different. The inside top right of this card was left straight, versus the angled cut on the first layout. Rather than cutting up to the top right corner, stop at the second score line for a different look! This card layout fits in a medium size envelope.

My photo template provides all the cutting and scoring dimensions for you. Follow the same steps to assemble this card as you did in layout #1. Feel free to change up the depth of the left side by tweaking the beginning cutting mark. Instead of marking the left at 3 1/2″ (see below), navigate this number higher or lower.
