With the holidays rapidly approaching, I find myself in a bit of a rush to get my Christmas gifts ready. Over the years, we have limited our holiday spending and tried to share simple, personal gifts with our family and friends. The minute I saw the word art, bonus items, and papers in Creative Spirit by Syndee Nuckles, I knew I wanted to create all occasion card sets to give as gifts!
Creating the cards was super-easy with the word art and frame clusters. I chose a finished card size of 5.5 inches wide by 4.25 inches tall so I could print two cards on a letter-sized piece of linen cardstock-weight paper.
To add a special touch, I also wanted to make matching stationary folders to turn the cards into a finished set. Let me show you how I did it:
Open a new 11×8.5-inch (width by height) layout in your digital software. Using Syndee’s ScrapSimple Craft Mini Album, drag the 6×6-inch page and a page pocket onto your layout. Duplicate, flip, and resize to fit within an 11×6-inch (width by height) area.
Attach coordinating digital papers to the template pockets and inside of your stationary folder. Vary the pocket sizes and shapes with the included pocket options.
Create the front cover of your stationary folder using a Bonus Item layout. Add word art and resize.
