-I love using this car because I stamp it and it’s ready to use, it was also easy to cut the out of box image.
--For the out of the image I mark the image on the back while holding to a light source (window works fine) then cut to the image on the front, flip it over and cut to the pencil marking on the back and cut out with scissors. For the between the image area I used a straight edge Coluzzle template and their craft knife. My paper cutter is the guillotine style.
-I sponged color on the edges of all the panels and added extra to the overall image panel.
-Tool distressing was done with a Tonic paper perforator and a thumbnail to get the corners separated and curled, plus I do a pitch and twist motion to get some added character in other areas.
-Stampin Up mat pack was used to mark the brad holes using a Making Memories piercer. Once they are marked I bring the paper to the edge of the table and push the piercer through…this is much easier than trying to punch with a 1/16” circle punch especially though layers of paper/cardstock.
-Stamp Up oval punches were used for the sentiment and I stamp first then line up the punch for the hello.
-The envelope was masked off with a post it note on the front and stamped, I lie my paper onto the rubber side up image, cover with a scarp paper and lightly press across the entire image.
It is also stamped on the back flap and this is so easy just by tucking a piece of paper larger than the envelope under the flap to mask off the remaining back area. I sponged all the outside edges front and back. Using the Scor-Pal I added two lines along the image on the front, if you don’t want them on the flap in the back just raise it up before you score. I use a metal ball stylus for this.
