DIY: RUSTIC TRI- FOLD INVITATION
• Crumb Cake Cardstock – 5.5 by 10 inches (about 14 x 25.5cm) • Crumb Cake envelope • Printed paper – 2.5 by 10 inches (about 6.4 x 25.5cm) • Twine or ribbon to match • 1¼ and 13/8 inch circle punches (about 3.2 and 3.5cm) • Scrap of Vanilla cardstock • Hole punch • Versamark Ink and Floral stamps of your choice • Die or Kraft knife (*All products shown are from Stampin’ Up)
1. Score or fold Crumb Cake card at 3 inches and 7 inches (about 7.5 and 17.8cm). The middle portion will be where the photo is placed; the top portion is where the text is placed. You may wish to print the text before cutting the cardstock, or you can print it separately and stick on to the section 2. Using either a die or a Kraft knife, cut a slit in the bottom panel in an upside down U-shape to fit the top panel when the invitation is closed. You may also opt to skip this step and just use the belly band to hold the invitation closed 3. Stamp the flower images in Versamark on your invitation, on the top and bottom panels, and also on the envelope to match 4. Fold the printed paper to loosely fit around the closed invitation. Adhere together into a band. Do not adhere to the invitation itself as you want this to slide on and off 5. Print or handwrite your initials and date onto the Very Vanilla card. Punch with the 1¼ inch (about 3.2cm) circle punch. Punch a 13/8 (about 3.5cm) circle out of the leftover Crumb Cake and adhere together. Hole punch near the top of the tag 6. Cut approximately 20 inches (about 51cm) of twine or ribbon, and wrap around the belly band twice. Thread both ends through the hole and tie or knot to secure.
