Hostess Monday with Shirley

Hi! DT Shirley here with my Hostess Monday project.

For my project I made a double display card.

I used "Thanksgiving Pilgrims Set" and "Fall Accessories Set" for my card. I printed and cut my images out at 3 to 3 1/2 inches using design space and my cricut explore. The images were colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Small flower punch accents were added throughout.

I made the card base from a 6 by 12 inch piece of cardstock. The cardstock was creased at 2 inches, 4 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches. Cut lines were made one inch down from the top and one inch up from the bottom. They are 4 inches long from the 1 inch mark to the 5 inch mark and from the 7 inch mark to the 11 inch mark. These strips were then creased at the beginning and the end. (at 1 inch, 5 inches, 7 inches and 11 inches)

Two 6 by 2 1/2 inch panels are attached to the front of the closed card to create the display area. The band to keep the card closed is made from a 1 1/2 by 12 inch strip of paper mounted on a 1 3/4 by 12 inch strip of cardstock. This was loosely wrapped around the card and glued together in the back. A 4 inch fence and a 2 inch sentiment were attached to this band. Small flower punch accents were added.
