Hello peeps…I hope you are starting your weekend off great (in spite of the current lockdown, we are on day 60 in So Cal, although some areas are opening up) and that you'll have plenty of time for crafting and other happy pursuits.
With Memorial Day coming up soon, I thought I would release something new. While I have previously released several gift tags, I had never released greeting cards. Go figure. So, this is my attempt at a fun and cute greeting card.
Facts About the Greeting Card
As for the details about the freebie, this printable is meant to create one greeting card that measures approximately 5″ wide by 7″ tall. You will print this out on a 8 1/2″ by 11″ white cardstock and using a ruler measure out the 7″ by 10″ final card product . Use the crop marks as guides to cut out your greeting card.
Using a bone folder (ideally), but an old credit card will work, fold the card at the exact half width of the print out with the image on the top and on the left side. You will end up with a 5″ x 7″ foldable greeting card to write your greeting inside.
Note: The design was laid out on a landscape printer orientation, so please remember to change your printer when you send to print. Most modern printers' software will pick this up without making any changes but keep this in mind.
Materials and Supplies
Some of the supplies are optional, the additional supplies are mentioned in case you want your finished product to be a little crisper.
- White cardstock
- Scissors or slide cutter
- Silhouette Digital Cutter or Cricut, there are mostly straight cuts, so your digital cutter (if you own one) is not necessary.
- Bone folder, (optional, however, a great tool for crisp clean folds).
- Ruler, to measure the final greeting card and set up straight cuts, if using scissors.
