Hello and Happy Memorial Day to all my US friends....hope you have the day off to enjoy time with family and friends! It is the last Monday of the month and you know what that means? Yep, you guessed it Tall & Skinny cards at the Mojo Monday Blog; I soooo luv making these sweet little babies! I go for the extra skinny and use a 12 x12 piece of card stock, here are the instructions.
The first size is 3.5 x 5.5" and fits a regular A2 envelope with a little room left over to let something (like the circle in this sketch) hang off the 3.5" side. You can use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.
- 3.5 x 11" cut of cardstock, score long side at 5.5"
- 5.5 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"
For a little more skinny, you can try a 3.5 x 6" card to fit a regular No. 6 3/4 envelope (the ones that are about the size of a personal check). Use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.
- 3.5 x 12" cut of cardstock, score long side at 6"
- 6 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"
I have used the newly released Verve set Be Blessed, the entire release is a must have! I watercolored the flower using Tim Holtz Distressed markers, I adore this color combo together. Another fabby combo from The Color Throwdown gals...you ladies rock! Hope you have a super day...sparkle & shine!
