Make It/Take It Card

This is the Make It/Take It card that Dawn Cutter led in our store last Wednesday. Dawn was very thorough -- gave me a detailed list with supply and assembly instructions. Now that you've seen where we're headed, this is how to get there. It's quick and easy and comes in handy when you need a card NOW . . .

Stamps: Inkadinkado "Birds in a Tree" and "Expressions"
Ink: Black inkpad
Cardstock: White (5½" x 8½", folded or scored at 4¼"), Kraft (4¼" x 5½", 3½" x 2¼" and 1½" x 2"), Pink (5¼" x 4"), Ivory/Cream (3¼" x 2½" and 1¼" x 1¾")
Accessories: Acrylic Block, Cuttlebug, "Birds & Swirls" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Double Sided Adhesive, and Pop Dots.

Run the pink cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Birds & Swirls embossing folder.

Adhere the pink cardstock to the front of the folded white piece with double sided adhesive.

Stamp the "Birds in a Tree" image on the 3¼" x 2 ½" ivory cardstock, then use double sided adhesive to adhere it to the 3½" x 2¾" kraft cardstock.

Then stamp your sentiment of choice on the 1¼" x 1¾" ivory cardstock and adhere it to the 1½" x 2" kraft cardstock with double sided adhesive.

You can assemble the card with either double sided adhesive or pop dots, with the tree image at bottom right and the sentiment at a diagonal in the upper left.

All done -- thanks to Dawn Cutter for another great project.
