Thursdays with Sandiebella

it’s THURSDAY with SANDIEBELLA! Free Tutorial on how to make a BAY WINDOW CARD!

Hiya sistahs, happy Thursday-with-Sandiebella!
Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a beautiful BAY WINDOW CARD  featuring our EDNA LOVES THE OCEAN rubber stamp

Bay Window Card




Patterned paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Adhesive/foam tape
Oval and scalloped oval dies
How to:
Stamp Edna Loves the Ocean onto white card and colour using your preferred medium.

Add some highlights using a white gel pen.

Fussy cut around the outline

Cut a large scalloped circle from white card, and a smaller stitched oval from patterned paper.

Adhere the circles together, then adhere Edna to the front using foam tape.

Set aside to work on the card.

Cut 2 pieces of white card measuring 5.75″ square, and one piece measuring 5.75″ x 1″

Score ONE of the square pieces at 0.5″, 2.5″, 3.25″ and 5.25″

Valley fold the outer 0.5″ score lines and mountain fold the centre score lines.

Apply adhesive to one of the 0.5″ sections and adhere to the other 5.75″ square – lining up the edges.

For the layers cut:
White card:
(2x)  1-7/8″ x 5-5/8″
(1x)   5/8″ x 5-5/8″
Patterned Paper:
(2x)  1.75″ x 5.5″
(1x)  0.5″ x 5.5″
(2x)  3/8″ x 5.5″ (outer 0.5″ sections)
(1x) 5-5/8″ x 5-1/8″ (inside back)
Adhere the paper layers to the card layers (no card layer on the outer 0.5″ sections)
Apply 0.5″ foam tape to the back of the 5.75″ x 1″ piece of white card. Adhere it to the inside back of the card, lining it up with the edges on the right hand side. Adhere a piece of coordinating paper measuring 7/8″ x 5.5″ down onto the 1″ strip.

The 0.5″ section on the front will slip in behind this to close the card.

Stamp the sentiment from Edna Loves the Ocean onto white card and cut out using a stitched rectangle die. Stamp the “Girls just wanna have SUN” sentiment from the Summer Sentiment set and cut out using a small label die.

Apply foam tape along the 0.75″ centre section and adhere both the image and the sentiment down.

Adhere the sentiment panel inside.
