Laurel Punch Around the Page Card #3
This A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch folded size) note card has a simple border made using just the edge punch from the Laurel Punch Around the Page set. The border was created from a 1 1/4 inch strip of cardstock punched on both sides. I added a piece of yarn ribbon in the center strip.
I applied some liquid adhesive (Creative Memories Precision Point Adhesive) down the center of the strip and let it dry to clear before adding the ribbon. This prevents any glue showing on the thin ribbon surface.
I added a 3 1/4 x 5 inch rectangle punched with the Laurel set as an area to write inside the dark blue colored card.
I turned the leaves up at an angle to add some "fluffiness" to the card.
I like to coordinate the front and the inside of card when possible. This makes the card seem more finished.
You could quickly make up a set of these cards to give as a gift using different colors and widths of punched trim and adding ribbon or contrasting strips of paper in the center of the punched strip.
