Crafter's Companion US has released new Create-a-Card dies in A2 size, which make my life totally happy! It's so easy to create quick cards now, as these will create a decorative card front in no time!
For this fun die I thought I'd have a go at creating a unique party invitation, with a tent-fold style.
I started with a 16x16 piece of cardstock, and trimmed it to 4 1/4 x 16. Then I scored it at 5 1/2, and again another 5 1/2" from that line to create the tent fold.
After I die-cut the front, I added a piece of shimmering cardstock behind it, to make the white pop. And some fabulous flowers cut form shimmering cardstock as well.
Here's the side view!
On the back side of the 'tent' I embossed a piece of shimmering cardstock and used a cupcake wrapper die (I cut a piece of it) to form the fence that holds the card in this position. It's only adhered at the bottom, so it folds flat for mailing in a regular envelope.The butterfly is a cupcake topper die.
The party info would go on the inside - isn't it fun?
