In this instructable I've documented how to make a pretty, simple and fun layered card. I made this in under five minutes. There can be many variations of this, which I think, I’ll post in a little while as well. Hope you like it…let’s begin ^_^
Things you’ll need:
• Pastel sheets or card paper in any two colors of your choice (I took a brown and dull shade of orange, more peach-ish than orange)
• A steel ruler/scale
• Paper cutter
• A small piece of ribbon (I took a red one, 12cm long)
• A cute looking sticker or a small cute picture
• Tape, Double-sided tape
Cut out a rectangle using the steel ruler and cutter. (You can use a regular plastic ruler too but the cutter damages the plastic scale's edges as you cut along it, hence its better to use a steel scale).
Make sure the longer edge of the rectangle is roughly double the length of the shorter edge, so that we get a square when we fold this rectangle in half, as shown in the images.
I used a cutout from a plastic file cover instead of a sticker and stuck it to the card using double sided tape (A quicker and neater option than glue).
Fold this brown rectangle in half as well, so it resembles a square.
Open the orange card on top, and place the ribbon diagonally on it as shown.
Keeping the ribbon in place, open the brown card below. Bring the ends of the ribbon inside the brown card and secure them there with tape. Cut away the excess ribbon.
Open the orange card, write your message "happy birthday!" "thank you!"...what ever you like. You can even use the diagonal ribbon on the card to attach some candy or coupons to the card.
I'd love to hear what you think about this ible...
Happy making! ^_^
