Tutorial ~ Inkido Quick Christmas Cards

Today I want to show you how to make some quick Christmas cards. 
 Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock to 4x12".
 Score the cardstock first at 2"....
...and then at 7 1/4".
 The carstock looks like this when you have folded it.
 Tear the edge of the smallest flap.
 Use brown ink to distress the edges. I used the Distress Tool and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink from Ranger.
Cut a piece of white cardstock to 3 3/4" x 4 1/4". Use a border punch on the top of the tag.
 Distress the edges of the tag with brown ink.
 On the front of the card I stamped the Stars stamp with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
 I used the same ink to stamp the Old Letter stamp to a piece of white cardstock.
Use a snowflake punch to punch out a big snowflake from the stamped paper.
I also punched two other snowflakes in white cardstock, one small and one big.
Adhere the snowflakes to the front of the card(over the stars) with glue dots. I used a blue pearl bling on top of the snowflakes. I used some Stickles on the snowflakes to make them sparkle.
I punched two holes through the flap and the back of the card and used some blue organza ribbon to decorate.
This is how the finished card loks inside.
And here you see the finished card again.
Here is a photo of some other cards I made the same style. Come visit the blog some other day and I'll show you more detailed photos of the cards.

Så enkle og dog så fantastisk flotte. Super god ide med at rive papiret på "flappen", det giver en rigtig god effekt. Super flotte.
