Love Cards... Handling it on the Homefront
The cards are all basically the same, just different pattern papers. I used 12x12 pattern paper that I cut down for these.
Here are the measurements:
PATTERN PAPER: 3 1/4" X 4 1/2"
WHITE LAYER: 3 3/8" X 4 5/8"
BLACK LAYER: 3 1/2" X 4 3/4"
RED LAYER: 4" X 5 1/4"
The card base is kraft paper and I is cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" then folded in half to make an A2 size card.
I punched out hearts and layered them onto a scallop heart. The red hearts I punched out of the red layer,, I could put my punch in far enough to punch it out and use the red layer without any punched out area showing. The strips for the sentiment were cut at I believe 1" or maybe a little smaller.. based on your sentiment. The sentiment I used is from an Hero Arts~Operation Write Home set. After stamping the sentiment, I punched the ends to make the banner.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
