Card base is 9" x 6" scored and folded at 4.5". I used a solid colored mat that measured 4.25" x 5.75".
Using double sided pattern paper cut a piece to 4" x 4"
- using Martha Stewart scoring board, score on diagonals at 5/8" and 1 3/8" on each side. - NOTE: if using a different scoring board dimensions may vary!
- fold the 1 3/8" side in and then fold back at 5/8"' on all four sides
- add a flower to inside with a brad - I used 3 layers of "studio g" paper flowers I got at Walmart.
I used a "Happy Birthday" sentiment at the bottom center and embossed it using versa mark and embossing powder.
I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder to emboss about 3/4s of the mat which ended about 1/4" above the greeting and add a ribbon across the card where the Swiss Dots end.
I adhered the mat to the card base and then adhered the square/diamond to the top.
Inside mat measurements:
5.5"x4" on one side of the pattern paper
5"x3.5" on the opposite side
4.5"x3" for the white mat
Makes a cute and fun card for any occasion! Enjoy!
