Kite Card

A2 size card.  Original tutorial from Operation Write Home:

Mat 1 (sky) = 5.25" x 4".  Paper color from Cricut Imagine Best Friends cartridge.

Mat 2 (green grass) = 3" x 4".  Grass created using Martha Stewart punch.

Kite:  Cut black card stock at 3.5" x 4.5".  Score on 3.5" side at 1.75".   Score on 4.5" side at 2".   Turn over and add tape around raised portion (but not on the scored raised portion).

Cut from two different coordinating pattern papers at 2" x 2.75".  You will need two cuts from each pattern.  Attach to black card stock.  Trim pattern paper where it extends off the black card stock.  Coordinating papers on kite example from Cricut Imagine Audrey cartridge.

Cut a kite shadow from black card stock by taping onto a block of black card stock and hand trimming around.   Kite attached to card using foam tape.

Accents you may choose to add to kite (optional):  Add a brad to center of kite.  On example above, I've also added yellow twine to the kite center (on the raised sections).  Yellow twine is Friendship Twine purchased in the children's craft section at Walmart.  The twine was extended to create a tail to the kite.   Twine added with Tacky Glue.

Flower on front of card = punched from Martha Stewart punch.  A brad matching the kite was added to center of flower.  Stickles and Glossy Accents added to pink petals of flower.   Flower attached to card using Scotch Quick Dry glue.

Sentiment = "Thinking of You" from TPC Studio "Greetings" stamp set.

Inside of card.

Mat 1 (beige) = 5.25" x 4".

Mat 2 - 4 (patterns) = cut at 1" square from kite paper scraps.   Add black card stock shadow around pattern cuts to accent.

Center image attached with single layer of foam tape.   Other two squares were attached with ATG tape.
