Congratulation on Your Weight Loss Card

My friend Faith recently posted about reaching another weight loss goal so I made her this Weight Loss Card.  I know she follows this blog so way to go Faith.

I used some rolled flowers I made.  The tutorial for them is here.  I also used a butterfly I made.  To see that tutorials go here.

This card is called a slanted easelor twisted easel card.  It fits nicely in an A2 envelope.

You will need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • various pieces of cardstock 
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Foam tape
        • Butterfly and Rolled Flowers (see links above)
        • Download File
Paper Selection
I made this card out of plain cardstock but the dark red colored paper could very easily be patterned.  The light pink needs to be solid for all the writing to show up.  The base needs to be at least 65 lb weight for the card to stand up.  
Cutting the Weight Loss Card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black pen.  If you want to change what the card says, that can easily be done before cutting.  

Assembly
Once the card is cut re-crease the folds and work the card a little. Next assemble the embellishments.  Don’t glue down the scale until the rest of the card is assembled.  Before that, attach the front of the card to the inside of the top triangle of the base card only.  If you glue below that the card won’t work.  This allows the card to stand.

Then fold the card forward, so that the front stands up.  With little pieces of foam tape attach the scale so that it catches and holds up the front of the card.

The Weight Loss Card is done and  fits in an A2 envelope.  I would put a little padding in so the embellishments aren’t crushed.. Enjoy
