For the Texana Design Team Stamp of the Month for March 2016 I created a couple of cards with the top and bottom of the front only connected by the focal image. Patterned paper was used to decorate the top section and bottom section of the card. The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card so that it showed through the opening between the top and bottom of the card front. I also used the mini stamp on the inside to pull the card together. The images are colored with pencils and blended with gamsol.
A2 Card cutting guide for bluebonnet card:
4 1/4" x 7", scored at 5 1/2" - card base
4 1/4" x 2 1/2" - bottom of card front
4 1/4" x 1 3/4" - mat for connecting focal image
4" x 5 1/4" - mat for inside
4" x 1 1/2" - for stamping focal image
Patterned Paper - Echo Park, Jack & Jill collection - Plaid
4" x 1 1/4" - top mat
4" x 2 1/4" - bottom mat
The sentiment on the paintbrush card is a bit tall, so I trimmed the bottom black and patterned paper to fit the sentiment.
The tag is made into a similar card by connecting two tags at the top and the top one scored to open. The ATC was created as a single layer.
So many variations, you can trim the front card at an angle or rotate the card.
