"Happy Birthday" Single-Layer Card #2

A few days ago I posted a single-layer card that I'd made for a challenge which used only a single sheet of paper or cardstock and a single piece of ribbon. Stamps and ink could be used to decorate the paper or cardstock, but no additional layers of paper or embellishments could be used. I really enjoyed the challenge of using very basic materials to create simple and elegant cards, so I made a few more to share with you in posts during the coming weeks. Here's a photo of the outside of the second single-layer card that I created:

Here's a photo of the inside of the card:

CTMH materials used are:
  • Blush cardstock
  • Cranberry ink
  • Cranberry velvet ribbon
  • "Soul Mates" stamp set
  • "A Little Everything" stamp set
  • Sponge
Non-CTMH materials used:
  • Paper corrugater
  • Glue Dots

Cut blush cardstock 12" long x 4 1/4" wide. Score at 6" (center) and fold in half. Using a paper corrugator, run about a third of the cover of the card through the corrugator. Lightly sponge Cranberry ink over the corrugated area of the card. Fold 1/4" of the right edge of the corrugated cover over, then fold another 1/4" of the corrugated cover over and using Glue Dots adhere the corrugated flap down. (This will reveal the stamped image that you'll be stamping on the inside edge). Swipe the edges of the card along the Cranberry inkpad to give definition to the outer edges. Stamp desired design and sentiment on the cover of the card. Stamp sentiment on the inside of the card, as well as a border stamp along the right edge, as shown in photos. Cut 12" of ribbon, tying ends together to form knot. Cut unknotted side of ribbon, and attach to card using Glue Dots, and lining up edges of ribbon on backside of card as shown in photo #2 above. Card will fit in standard A2 envelope.

Have a blessed day!
