Silhouette this week.
First let's assemble the leaf bag:
Now tuck the second angle tab into the "U."
Now for a tip on a card wrap!
The card wraps don't need much instruction...just fold the sides on the dotted lines...fun and simple!
However, tying them shut just right, may be another story. I have found the easiest way to do this is to thread the ribbon or string from the underside of each triangle in an "S" like order. Just follow the order of my letters in the photo above. Then with the ribbon ends, pull the corners together, and tie!
Now for instruction on the Pop-Up leaf cards:
Carta Bella. If you used this cardstock, set your blade to a depth of 4, for detailed designs like this one, turn the speed down to 2. Then choose the "double cut" box if your blade is not brand new. With new blades, double cut isn't necessary...but if you are like me and want to get all that you can out of your blade...then go for the double cut.
Now to assemble and fold the envelope. The key here is to make sure you are assembling your envelope right side up. The envelope should be laid out as in the picture above. Notice how the bottom of the side tabs goes wider toward the bottom...that's what you are looking for. Now Glue the envelope liner to the inside of the envelope.
Then fold the bottom tab up, and glue it to the sides. Done!
This is what your card and envelope will look like at this point. Look's great, right? But let's embellish it just for fun!Carta Bella...it's more of a green than a gold, but that's a technicality.
Insert the wire into the tag, then curl the wire...by just wrapping it around a pen or pencil.then thread the wire around it, then glue the ribbon onto the card.
Ta Da! it's done...your autumn leaf card set!
