Napkin Card xx

Afternoon lovelies

I hope this wee post finds you all well??
We're just back from a wee weekend away in the "minion" to Alnwick! Its such a beautiful place and really recommend it to everyone to visit!

Now yesterday on Create and Craft they showed off the new Christmas Create-a-Card Dies and I missed the show but just had to show you some wee creations

made using the Christmas Wreath

made using Over the Rooftops

and this is Christmas Village

I loved all of these new ones and couldn't pick a favourite! Tho this is may favourite card I made

a fab wee Napkin Card

Here's how to make it!

Napkin Card

    12x12 card stock plus extra for the wrap
    Pattern Paper
    Dies, ink and embellishments

  • Score the 12x12” piece of card stock at  3" and 9". Turn paper 90 degrees and score again at 3" and 9". Fold the card on the scoreline
  • Mark the centre of the card with dot. Fold each corner to the centre, creasing each score line 
  • This is optional but this is the time to start inking the sides
  • Fold the card as below creasing the folds,

then fold the sides to form these wee triangles

Cut the following squares out of the patterned paper sheets :
Two 5 1/2" squares
Two 3 1/4" square
 One 3 3/4" square
One 2 3/4" square. 
Then cut these squares into triangles, the cut the triangles into smaller triangles
  • Decorate the card base with the triangles and decorate the centre of the card too
  • Next you make the card wrap, using 2 lengths of the card stock and patterned papers and ribbon to tie. I used to lengths of card at 5x2” and the patterned paper just smaller leaving a border.
  • Finish by decorating as you wish adding embellishments and a little sentiment to finish! 
The Create-a-Card Dies are perfect for the centre of these cards and work so well with them! I hope my mini tutorial gets you making one of these fab Napkin Cards!

I you make one please share it with me!

Well until next time
