Wow! Card

This is a card I did with my friends in a "Wow" card swap at Convention. There were only four of us, so I only had to cut out four sets of everything. Not too bad! (BTW, hello to Shellee, Cheryl and Charil! It was fun!)

I got the layout idea for this card from Alli Miles . . . she did a really cute green and yellow tractor card with it. Here is the link (but you have to scroll waaaayyyy down - about halfway down the page - if you want to see it!):

Here are the dimensions. The Cameo Coral "base" piece is 5.5" x 8.5". Score a fold at 2 1/8" and 6 3/4". After scoring, make a little mark with a pencil at the center of each of the "short" ends (this is at 2 3/4"). Then, cut from the outer edge on each side of the fold, on the top and on the bottom edges, to make the "points".

Next, to make the rectangular panel, cut a piece that is 5" x 2 1/4" (this is the chocolate chip piece on my card). The layer on top of that is 4 3/4" x 2".

To make the card that slides inside the little "envelope" you have just created, cut a base pieces that is 5 3/8" by 4". You need to cut it a little smaller than the "normal" card size so that it will be easy to slide in and out. Then, you can add layers and embellish to your heart's content! I used the scallop circle punch and the 1 3/8", 1 1/4" AND 3/4" circle punches on mine. The stamp sets used were "Think Happy Thoughts", "Polka Dot" bg stamp and "Sanded" bg stamp.
