Tutorial Tuesday (Three Little Words)

Here is the card that I designed and tutorial to follow.

Here is the card template and link to what I used


Step:  Creating Card Base

1.  Cut base card  to 5 1/2" x 11"

2.  Line up the cardstock vertically at 1" and place the cutting blade at 1" cutting down to 6 1/2" and then flip to do the same on the other side.

3.  Place the cardstock on a scoring pad horizontally and score from the outer edge of card to the cut line at 1", 2", and 6 1/2" as shown below.  Then flip and do the other side.

The black lines indicate where to score to.

4.  Keeping the card horizontal, score again at 5 1/2" to create the half fold of card

Black line indicated the 5 1/2" score.

5. Folding the scores
- First score line mountain fold

-Second fold is a valley fold

- Third and Center scores are mountain folds

Step: Decorating Card Front

I took this picture and marked all the surface areas so that if you wanted to decorate inside each section you could access the dimensions quickly.

However, I am only doing the tutorial on the posted card.

1.  Cut out a piece of same cardstock that measures for the bottom piece at 5 1/4" x 3/4"
and then emboss with desired folder, like so.

2. Cut a piece of white cardstock at 3 3/4" x 3 1/4"
3.  Cut a piece of baby blue cardstock at 3 5/8" x 3 1/8"

Step: Applying Clouds

Here is what you will need for this

1.  I made my own "cloud" template and simply laid it on the cardstock and sponged over it and then rotated around for variation with the white ink.

2.  Then sponge in some Bordering Blue to add depth to the clouds

Note: I only went half way down the card

Step: Making Design

1. Choose desired image and stamp

2.  Color the image
(I chose to use the Stampin' Up Markers)

3.  Adhere to the ZigZag Card base

Step: Embellish and Stamp Sentiment

1.  Using the Stampin' Up set Three Little Words, I stamped this image above the cat.
2.  I placed a black picket fence for some depth.
3. I stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up! Hang In There set 

4.  You're done!

I hope this tutorial was easy to follow, but if you have any questions, please comment and I will be sure to help answer your questions.

Thank you for visiting my blog and happy stamping!
