Book Binder In Symmetry Card

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Who doesn’t need a little lift on Monday from a friend!?

Sweet Symmetry DSP

Today I’m sharing a card I made on Stamp with MJ Facebook Live for Triple Play Thursdays. It’s a book binder card- so fun & easy to make.

Starting with a 11 x 4.25 piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock, I scored at 5.5 and again at 6.5”. Next I wrapped a piece of Flirty Flamingo Gold Metallic ribbon between the 5.5” & 6.5” score lines & tied my bow. I ensured I was happy with the placement of the bow on the front & unfolded my card. Then I added Stampin’ Seal+ between the score lines & closed the front panel.

Tip 1: If you want to try it for the first time, skip the ribbon. You can decorate the front between the score lines with a 0.75” x 4” coordinating piece of DSP.

Look closely for the score line

Tip 2: Keep the adhesive between these two score lines- it’s ok if you get adhesive on the inside ribbon as you’ll be sealing this 1” section.

That’s it for the book binding fun fold.

All that’s left now is to decorate the front panel. I used the Sweet Symmetry DSP & layered it on a piece of Just Jade card stock. The DSP colors and patterns are right on trend; just take a look around at home decor or women’s fashions & you’ll see what I mean. I love this about Stampin’ Up- so trendy along with the color coordination.

The DSP sale runs thru August 2nd.

The “hey friend” sentiment is from the In Symmetry stamp set; Flirty Flamingo ink stamped on basic white & punched with the Tailored Tag punch. Two additional tags were punched in Flirty Flamingo & bordered the white sentiment panel.

Thanks for stopping over! Marilyn (aka MJ)
