Thanks from the Lovebirds

This is a thank you card for our engagement party.  :-)  We had an absolutely fabulous time!  With each card, we are sending photos of the family/couple at the party. 

  • Certainly Celery 4 1/4 x 11
  • Bashful Blue 3 x 5 1/2 + scrap
  • Choccolate Chip 4 x 4
  • Always Artichoke scrap 6 x 6
  • Crumb Cake scrap
  • Red Glimmer paper scrap
  • Dimensionals
  • Xyron Create a Sticker
  • 2 Way glue stick
  • Computer generated Sentiment

I cut the tree out of Chocolate Chip.  Then I cut the layers out of Always Artichoke.  I cut 2 layers, one with a circle cut out of the middle.  I adhered all of these together and then put a dimenional on the back of the birds and placed in the center of the circle.  I added some leaves around the birds and a little punched heart just above them.

Score the Certainly Celery at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2" then flip and score the other end the same way.  Fold all score lines.  At the 5 1/2 scoreline, make a small slit from .5 to 9.5 cm (using the cutting guide on a paper trimmer).  Fold both of the 1" scorelines in and add ashesive, slip the Bashful Blue through the slit and then line up with the 1" fold.  Then line up the other 1" fold and adhere together.  Add dimentionals to the tree and then place at the bottom of the little box that forms when the tag is pulled up.
