More masterboarding coming right up!

Hello stampers and welcome back to the Classic Card!

Today we're on day 5 of our Masterboard class and today I'm going to show you card #4.  I hope you aren't getting sick of looking at the masterboard you created.  I love the bright flowers on my masterboard, so I'm not tired of looking at them yet.  When you're going to create 6 cards out of the same stamped paper, it helps if you love the colors and images to start with.  So I guess that's rule number one.  If you don't love your initial attempt, trash it and start over.  It is only one piece of card stock, not a yard of expensive fabric.

Are you ready for today's card?  It is a tiny little 3 by 3 gift card, just perfect for attaching to a wrapped gift. I can remember buying little cards like this back in the day at the Hallmark store for 50 cents (make that waaaay back in the day).  Do they even sell these anymore?  I guess it doesn't really matter, since they are so very easy to make.  Here's the card...

And here's the diagram of the bottom half of your masterboard, showing where card #4 is cut

OK, now that we have that out of the way, here's what to do next.

Start with a card base that is 3 inches by 6 inches.  Fold it in half to make a 3 by 3 card.
Next, cut a piece of solid card stock that is 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 and adhere it to the base.  Then cut the masterboard piece down to 2  1/2 by 2 1/2.  Run it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Wrap some Real Red Stitched Grosgrain ribbon around the textured panel and adhere it to the Real Red panel.  Stamp the sentiment (from Bring on the Cake, page 14 of the annual catalog) on a scrap of white card stock in Real Red and punch out with the 1 1/4 circle punch and layer it onto a Real Red circle punched out with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch.  Adhere the sentiment to the card with dimensionals. Voila!  You are finished!  
If you have the fabulous Envelope Punch Board, you can make a cute little envelope for your cute little card.  But if not, Stampin'Up! sells envelopes that are perfectly sized for these tiny cards.  You can find them on page 162 of the annual catalog and you get 40 of them for $7.50 (item # 107309).  

That's a wrap for today, stampers!  
May you enjoy a wonderful Easter with family and friends!
