It is best to create the inside of the card prior to die cutting with the Big Shot. In this way, the placement of the score lines will be easier.
Create the standard sized card for the inside. The bottom panel is 4-1/8″ x 5-1/2″, the middle panel is 5-1/4″” x 4″ and finally, the top panel is 3-3/4″ x 5″. Use the inside largest panel to determine the score lines.
To create the card base, the Night of Navy is cut at 4-1/4″ X 11″. Before using the die, calculate where to place the score lines and the framelits.
The largest framelit and the border framelit are aligned at the right end of the card stock and the smaller framelit and the border framelit at the other end. Lay the inside of the card between the 2 framelits. You will be able to see if you need to make any adjustments. There needs to be a 1/4″ border between the back of the card base and where the thinlits lies. Use the border framelits to assist in the placement of the detailed framelits.
Mark and score the fold lines on the card base. You can now die cut using the Big Shot and the framelits. The card will close off-centered.
There is not a proper closer, so you need to create one. Punch a coloured circle using the 2″ Circle punch, stamp the sentiment on a piece of whisper white and punch using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. Layer the 2 circles and punch a small hole with the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch.
Adhere the closer to the left hand side and thread the Solid Night of Navy Baker’s Twine through a space. The circle will be enough to hold the other side in place.
