WIN $50 BLOG CANDY : Tri-fold Cami Card CONTEST!

A great friend of mine, Char~, from Jean's Art Dolls DT, had heard of a card similar to this from Splitcoast Stampers, I BELIEVE... I played around with the template design, and here's my take on it!




Here's how you make this:

1. Cut a sheet of relatively heavy patterned paper to 8" x 8-1/2"
2. Trace the outline of a plate on the very top, like an arch,  to achieve a rounded top to the almost sqaure piece of paper.


3. Cut along the arch to get a rounded top.


4. On each side, measure 2" in from the bottom, and two inches in from each side, and draw line as illustrated below, then cut out both of the "squares' you just drew::


5.  Fold bottom flap up.  Then, fold the left panel over to center, and fold the right panel slightly over the left:


The rest is easy!  But no photos, because I'm not going to give you ANY NEW IDEAS
6. Cut out a 5" tag shape out of coordinating patterned paper, AND a 4 or 4-1/2 inch tag out of solid, light-colored cardstock (so you can write on it.) or, as I did on this one, vice-versa!
7.. Mat the smaller tag onto the larger one.
8. Time to dress up your cami!  I almost always make some sort of  a "belt,' either out of ribbon, fiber, cardstock or pp.  On some I'll follow the curved lines iof the "V-neck" and decorate with bling, eyelets threaded with fiber-- all things are possible!

IF YOU WISH TO ENTER MY CONTEST FOR THE MOST ORIGINAL CAMI-CARD,
