The Kintsugi cards not only bring joyful birthday greetings, they also deliver comfort, encouragement, and love.
As with most CS® Card Kits, you'll make four each of three different card styles. This month, we're featuring a Z-fold card, tent card, and single fold 5x7" card. Let's take a look at each format.
Card Set A
The double-Z fold card is extremely easy to make. I'll set you up for success with the detailed paper trimming and scoring instructions. Each card base is scored twice and then accordion folded. The panels nest perfectly, and the sentiments are centered on the front and inside card flaps. Finish with a gingko charm, gold Dazzles and/or a bow.
Card Set B
Our clever paper trimming formula produces four tent cards using half the paper normally required for a card of this size! Use foam adhesive circles from your stash to elevate the inner greeting. When the card is opened, a crease on the nesting panel allows the sentiment to be held upright by the raised sentiment on the inside of the card.
Card Set C
When calculating how the 12x12" papers will be trimmed and used on the cards, it's common to have strips available for anchoring and matting. Not including the sentiment, tag, and envelope, this card features seven panels and strips! This helps increase the color variation and interest on each card. Use your 2x8 Grid Ruler to ensure the panels and strips are centered and leveled. Insert a cute little tag cutapart into the adorable 2x2" glassine bag we've included in the kit.
If any of these cards look too challenging for you, never fear! Each monthly card kit includes a detailed video workshop to set you up for success! Tune in for lots of assembly tips.
