Today I want to show you how to make an extra tall card. This card can actually be made with one sheet of 7″ x 7″ cardstock, however, it would have to be a side fold.
I wanted to make this extra tall card top folding. Since we don’t have 14″ paper I had to cut two pieces.
I am giving these cards and mugs as a gift. But I am not telling who yet because I want it to be a surprise. I am doubtful the folks that will receive this look at my YouTube or blog but just in case I am going to keep it a secret for now.
Tips & Instructions For An Extra Tall Card
+ Cut two pieces of Whisper White thick cardstock. One at 3-1/2″ x 7″ and the other one at 3-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.
+ Score the piece that is 7-1/2″ long at 1/2″ on the long side. Add Tear & Tape adhesive to the scored 1/2″ piece and adhere to the backside of the other piece of cardstock.
+ Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock at 3-1/4″ x 6-3/4″ and ink blend. The inks I used are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather.
+ Next splatter small droplets of water on the ink blended background, I used an aquapainter and flicked the water. Next I added some Frost White shimmer paint splatters. Let it dry.
+ Stamp all of your coffee cups in the same coordinating colors and add to your ink blended background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
+ Add ink blended panel to the card base
