Christmas in July

While I was working in my craft room making the notecards, I ran across another weave boarder that I had cut out and never did anything with at the time.  And I was on a roll, “so Christmas in July” was born.

This boarder is a simple diamond/triangle shape cut into red paper. I then scored all the folds and folded & weaved the boarder.

I took one piece of green cardstock and one piece of white cardstock and cut them to notecard size (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) and folded them into notecards.

White Notecard

  • I took one of the face plates and centered it horizontally & vertically on the white note card.
  • I put the weaved boarder on the top of this card – just to be a little different.

Green Notecard

  • I took one of the front plate and put a piece of Christmas themed paper behind the diamond weave, so it would add some color to the card.
  • I then took that front plate and centered in horizontally on the notecard, but put it flush to the top. I placed the weaved boarder on the bottom of this notecard.

Then on both cards, I took a stamp (stampin up) and stamped Happy Holidays across the card in silver pigment ink. Notice how the stamped image goes off the edge of the face plate to appear to wrap the whole thing together?

Here’s a close up of the weave:
