Card holder with Card

This is another project for the CWC design team. Again if you want these awesome papers, go to CWC.



The cards:





Cosmo Cricket Cardstock (10 1/2x 12)
Cosmo Cricket Journaling patterned paper (sentiments are to be cut out)
Black Cardstock (enough to make 3 4 ¼ x 5 1/2 cards)
Inkadinkado Stamp (Michael’s)
Black Ink (CTMH)
Silver Thread (any craft store)
Mark Richards Felt Stickers
Black Stickles

Instructions for the Card Holder (taken from

• with the paper 10 1/2" wide, you are going to score it at 4 1/2" and 6 turn the paper to 12" wide, and score at 6" and 10 1/2"
• for the diagonal measurements, starting at the 6" line, go up 2 1/2" on each side and mark, then to to the top of the template and mark 3/4" on either side of the center 1 1/2" and draw your diagonal and cut on that line.
• cut all the red lines, and score the green lines.
• for the green lines in the middle of the 4 1/2" line, just simply cut the lines and then bring the outside edges into the scored 1 1/2" line, and give yourself a nice strong fold

Add your adhesive (I'd recommend sticky strip/tacky tape or something strong like that), at the edges of the 4 1/2" cut marks. Then fold the bottom 1 1/2" up and attach the long right and left rectangular side pieces, one side a time to the inside 1/2 of the square--then once you've attached it, you'll fold the the rest of the square over, and your middle score line will be a lovely clean edge. Then do the same on the other side.

Now, take a piece of cardstock, about 1x4", and score it at 1 1/2 and 3", just making a piece to put on the front of your box. (With the paper being 12", the front is about 1" shorter than I wanted it to be, so you can add a contrasting strip of paper to make it match the height)

Now, put your adhesive on the back portion that you'll be folding over to make the holder. You'll want to put it a strip on the outermost edge, maybe one in the center, and then one right on either side of the middle 1 1/2" scored lines.
Now add you patterned paper and decorate or just leave plain cardstock!
Embellish as desired.

All remaining materials were used to make the cards.
