Wednesday’s Card: Holiday Photo Card

Holiday Photo Card

Holiday Photo Card

I decided to post my holiday card for 2010 on the blog. I was just so excited about my folded cardstock idea that I had to share. So, for those of you that are getting a card from me this year (shout-out to my awesome, supportive sister, Danielle!), here’s a preview! I decided to use one of the photos from our vow renewal in June.

The final card is 5″x7″, which fits a standard size A7 envelope. I took a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and cut 2 cards out of it (5×12 and 5×12). I scored it at 7″ and folded it. Then, I added the white and brown strips to the 5″ side to extend it a little. The photo is a 4×6 photo that I cut to 4×5 by trimming 1/2″ from each side.

I used the new XL Decorative Label punch for the sentiment on the front. I used a dauber to ink the edges just a tiny bit. I wanted to add a frame to it but not make it look distressed. If you try that with a sponge, it won’t work. These little daubers are really good for inking the edges in a subtle way.

Anyway, pretty easy and a great way to incorporate a photo into your card!
