I have a “two-for-one” goody of a post for you today! Not only do I get to show you the darling new FREE digi from ChiChi Memories (yup – I said free), but I also get to share a tutorial with you!
This darling little digi is perfect for this Thanksgiving season. We actually just celebrated Thanksgiving this last weeked here in Canada, and while I was cooking a turkey for my family, I looked just like her (okay, that might be a little bit of a stretch – as my preparations included a few choice words when I realized I couldn’t fit the stuffing into the oven because the turkey was too big – other than that though… ;)). I coloured her up using Copics (my tool of choice for colouring), and used some cute new paper from DCWV called Modern Meadow. And the base of the card is actually a center-step card, and let me show you how you can create one too!
Cut a piece of 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. This will give you a standard 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ once folded.
Measure 1 ” in from one of your 8 1/2″ edges.
Starting 1 1/4″ away from the 5 1/2″ edge use a craft knife (or paper cutter) to cut from this 1 1/4″ mark to the 7 1/2″ mark. Flip over your paper and repeat along the other 8 1/2″ edge.
You are now going to do some scoring in the 1″ border you created.
Using a scoring board, create score lines at the 1 1/4″ mark, the 2″ mark and the 5″ mark. Make sure this core line only goes from one of the 8 1/2″ mark to the 1″ cut line you create. Flip over your paper and repeat along the other edge.
Working in the space between your cut lines, create a score mark at the 4 1/4″ mark. Make sure you stop at the cut lines!
It’s really that easy! Once you have those score lines in place you have a fun little fancy fold that fits in a regular envelope.
So, go pick up that cute ChiChi Memories freebie (and perhaps one or tow others as well ;)) and come join us for the challenge this month! We always love to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!
