I watched this Paper Wishes Webisode on making a small mini from die cut labels. I didn't really want to make a mini, but decided to make a card using the same idea. I have a friend who loves the images of Christmas so much she displays them throughout her house all year long. I thought she would get a kick out of this card. It is so easy to make. I still have to cover the front of the card, and now that my stamps have arrived I can get to that part. But in the meantime I wanted to share the inside.
You start with 6 1/8" by 12" piece of card, I used Recollections White Card. You score along the 12" side at 4" and 8". Between the 4 and 8 inch score lines you score every 1/2 inch.
These 1/2" scores are folded mountain/valley then are glued to form four tabs. These tabs become the spines for the pages.
I didn't add too many layers to the pages, so the card would be flat. Most of the elements were stickers and rub ons I had in my stash from last Christmas sales. I only inked all over the first page. I thought I would like it, but it seemed a bit over powering when I got done. Much of the bling is from Dazzles gems since they are flat but the holographic images are beautiful.
So here are the pages I made:
