Table Tent Handmade Card - New Card Size

Welcome back to Creative Chelsey. I am happy you found me and are excited to try this new card size. I doubt that I am the first person to cut cardstock to this size, but I love the size so much I wanted to share it with you.

The story behind the cut...I have been wanting to keep some generic Thank you cards in my purse and car for moments when I am grateful for someone and don't know them well enough to be able to send them a card and instead just want to hand them a pre-written and signed card to brighten their day. I was going to make 3" x 3" size cards, but they didn't fit nicely into my purse. So I took a normal 4.25" x 5.5" card and cut it down to 2.75" x 4.25" and wha-la the Table Tent Card was made. 

Here are some I have designed 


These cards are so easy to design and are the perfect size to use up scraps of cardstock or designer series paper.

Okay so how to make it:
Here are the written instructions, but you can watch me walk you through the steps in a video below.
1. You need an 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock
2. Place the 8.5" side at the top of a scoring tool, score in half at the 4.25" mark
3. Using a paper cutter, place the 11" side at the top and cut at 2.75" - then slide your paper and make 3 more cuts at 2.75".
4. Fold along the score line. Now you have 4 Table Tent Cards.

I would love to see how you design this size of card. Post a picture to any social media site and #tabletenthandmadecards to share your design and see other awesome cards.

Thanks for stopping by - Have a creative day!

April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sentimental Rose

I always enjoy receiving my paper pumpkin kits in the mail. However, I was very excited for this months kit. Stampin' Up had released early that it was going to be a dist-ink-tive stamp. I love this new type of stamped image because it automatically gives the image different shades without having to do any special technique.

As soon as I opened the box and saw the large rose image I knew I was going to want to use this stamp over and over. I quickly made ALL the cards in the kit and even some extra cards that same night. Check out my videos and projects below.

If you unfortunately missed out on this great kit and miss another one and subscribe now!

If you want to try dist-ink-tive stamps for yourself check out the images below for other stamps sets with this unique imagery.
