This is a card you send to someone you really *really* REALLY love… and they are going to love it, too!
We made this at our July stamp club so you don’t need to be cautious to try it: It’s easier than it looks and the trick is to cut the basic pieces first.
Once you’ve made one Theater Card, you’ll want to make another. I’m here to make it easier for you with a video tutorial and cutting guide (see below).
Before I give you the cutting instructions, I wanted to tell you that today is World Day against Human Trafficking: Did you know we have more people enslaved now than ANY other time in the world? And of the 30 million current slaves, 10 million are children? I’ve supported Operation Underground Rescue as my primary charity since I learned about this pernicious plague 3 years ago, so I’m linking arms again today and tomorrow with O.U.R. to help make a difference and your order will help!
Thank you for considering how to help make a difference and Rise Up for the children. Now on to the instructions for your Theater Card pieces.
Cut the following pieces from the same color of card stock:
- (2) 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
- (2) 4” x 5-3/8” scored in landscape position at 1-1/16” and 2-5/8” (watch video for instructions to cut slits)
- (2) 6-1/4” x 3/4” strips, scored on each end at 1”
- (1) 1-1/4” x 4-1/4” trimmed to an i-Beam (see video)
Designer Series Paper (DSP)
- 5-1/4” x 4” for front of card
- 3” x 4” for back of “stage”
- 3/4” x 4” for front of I-Beam (optional)
- Layer the largest piece of DSP on the front of a 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” panel (don’t adhere them together yet). Use the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a window in the front of both
- Adhere the DSP frame to card stock frame, and cut the piece of DSP from the inside of the frame in half to use for the “curtain” later.
- Use the Multipurpose liquid glue: It has some “wiggle room” while it is wet, then a firm bond once it dries.
