Hinge Card

This is a hinge card. Very simple to make.
Start with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" base. Then cut two pieces of coordinating cardstock 3" x 4 1/4". Scallop the edge of the bottom cardstock piece, decorate as desired and then adhere this piece to the base. Be sure to leave at least 1/2" from the scalloped side down unadhered (is that a word?) so that the top hinged piece can slip inside it.

Lay the top piece of cardstock in place and then punch a 1/16" hole through all layers and attach with a brad.

Wrap a piece of ribbon around the bottom piece (under the scalloped edge) and tie a bow - keeping it to the far left side.

Now cut a piece of cardstock 2" x 2 3/8" for the focal image and layer this piece on two pieces of cardstock 2 1/4" x 2 5/8" and 2 1/2" x 2 7/8". Adhere the focal image to the card by placing pop dots above and below the ribbon. Be sure not to adhere it to the top hinged piece.

Colors: Petal, Pansy Purple, Colonial White and New England Ivy
Stamps: Boutique Borders, Botanical Borders, Butterfly Kisses, Picture Perfect (Corner Tab), Tender Tags (flourish) and Thank You
Accessories: Colonial White Organdy Ribbon, Garden Green Brad, Colonial White Safety Pin, Paper flowers and a rhinestone.
