Daily Special - Technique Day - Square Coat Card Tutorial

Yay! Another Daily Special. Today's special is "Technique Day". This tutorial is called "Square Coat Card". Honestly, I didn't know what to call it. Maybe someone could come up with a better name. The design concept was inspired by a card cover I saw on Paper Craft Magazine Card Creations Volume 4, page 18 by Michelle Tardie. It's an adaption of the card holder. The design on the magazine was a card holder type of design. The size are not the same and the insert is different.

Anyway, the base card is attached to the outer coat so I called it a "Coat Card" because it's actually a card and not just a cover. The card fits into a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square envelope. Stampin Up sells this size square envelope in the case anyone is curious where to find an envelope for this card.

I did not create a sketch because the base card design is too simple. Scroll down to see how the card looks when opened up. Try out the tutorial and if you want to send me a picture and I'll post your card on to my blog site as a "guest stamper".

Until later. . .
