Change of Address Christmas Card: Tutorial (Part II)

Let's take a look at another idea you can use for your handmade change of address card.  (Or any card, for that matter!)  The design for this card was a result of the 'ole "necessity is the mother of invention" crisis.  I only had one red panel left and I didn't want to waste an entire sheet of cardstock to make another one, so I grabbed a scrap of satin ribbon and came up with this:

The bottom flips down and then the top flips up to open the card.


Visit yesterday's post to see the list of supplies and to view the measurements. 

The most important element of this card is the use of the ink-to-paper technique.  Take a look at the edges of these pieces:

To achieve this look, all you have to do is rub the edges of the paper directly onto the ink pad.  It's that easy!
