Instructions

Hello crafty friends! I hope all of you are having a lovely day. Today I’m excited to share a Christmas card I made using supplies from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I loved making this card!

 

 

Simon Hurley Merry Christmas Card Step 1

Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½ x 11 cardstock down to 4¼ x 11. Then score at 5½. Cut another piece measuring 4 x 5¼ to be your front panel.
