Paper Geo-Die Card
Celebrate summer with some bright paper, a few Geo-Dies, and some glitter. This Paper Geo-Die Card can be as simple or as intricate as you like. Such a fun card to sent to others because you can customize it to them.
This project is perfect to be held in a Natural Citrus A2 envelope because it holds all the colors together.
To start the card print a line design of your choosing on the Orange Gold Fusion paper. Then cut a 6-inch square from the newly designed paper. From the center middle of this 6-inch square use a 4.5-inch circle die cut to make 2 pieces of paper (the square with a circle opening & a 4.5-inch circle).
Next cut the 8.5-inch x 11-inch sheet of Galaxy Gold to 4.25-inch wide, leaving it 11-inch long. Score and fold it at 5.5-inch, so your final card is folded at the top and is 4.25-inch wide and 5.5-inch tall. Cut a 6-inch square of Silhouette Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and remove the heavier white backing. Attach it to the 6-inch square of Orange Gold Fusion.
Since the card opens upward, apple the circle center of the Orange Gold Fusion to the Gold Galaxy so that it is directly under the open circle above (I applied the line design in a different way that the top of the card).
To complete the front of the card I used Geo-Dies Pattern 10 die cut on the Sunburst paper to make the fancy design (but you are welcome to use your favorite diecut) and for the inner designs on it I put some tape on certain angles then added some glitter to the exposed tape. You can rub your finger against the exposed tape with glitter on it to make sure that it sticks.
For the lettering I used Lunar Blue and die cut the letters that I wanted. I chose to do my initials on the envelope and to write “Be Happy” on the inside of the card. I also added the little blue glitter bird to the inside of the card because who doesn’t love a happy little bird.
