Special Card - Holds a CD

Hi everyone, its Colleen here with you today and can you believe Christmas is just a few weeks away, so I am trying to get organised and be on top of things this year! With my family living in another country I need to be a little innovative to.

So the card I am going to share with you today, holds a CD on the inside. I am planning to make a CD of family photo's to send to our loved ones as I am not very good at keeping them up to date with our family photo's.

This card measures 140mm x 140mm so it can fit inside a standard envelope and doubles up as a Christmas card and pressie to, so lets get started.

Cut card stock 280mm x 210mm and fold in half, along 280mm length. Along the width (210mm) score at 140mm, fold and cut bottom right corner as shown below.

Fold bottom left corner in as shown below. This is going to hold your CD.

Cut patterned paper 135mm x 135mm, ink edges, stitch around edges and adhere to card. Fold bottom piece in and stitch sides as shown below, the stitching will be covered up. You can use glue or double sided tape but make sure you adhere it close to the edges to ensure there is enough space for the CD.

Cut patterned paper 65mm x 135mm, ink edges, stitch around edges and adhere to card.

Cut patterned paper 135mm x 135mm, ink edges, adhere a piece of ribbon about half way down on the right side, stitch around edges and adhere.

Now the inside of your card is ready and you can pop your CD in.

Cut patterned paper 135mm x 135mm, ink edges, adhere piece of ribbon on right hand side to align with the ribbon on the inside, stitch around edges and adhere. Adhere image, embellishments and tie ribbon to close the card.

This darling image has been coloured with Copics and is from the Secret Winter kit, isn't is cute!

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed this and enjoy your Christmas preparations!
