It’s almost Sale-A-Bration time and the exclusive Sale-A-Bration products this year are just fabulous. This kite card is made using 3 of our Sale-A-Bration products and my Kite Card Tutorial. You can find my Kite Card tutorial HERE. This kite card is for a very special friend who has a birthday coming up this week. The inside of the card has more surfaces than a traditional card to put pretty designer paper on (see last photo). The unusual shape and opening of this card make it unique.
The bow is made using a serving fork similar to how other fork bows are tied. I just looped the ribbon a few more times before tying the knot.
The embossing of the label is achieved by first cutting out the second smallest label as normal. Then using the smallest label and the following sandwich. NOTE: Please use caution as incorrect placement may result in damage to your pads or machine. Never force a sandwich through your Big Shot that doesn’t seem correct.
smallest label framelit with cutting side facing up (critical!)
second smallest label piece (make sure the small framelit is centered)
Impression Pad (NOT the crease pad)
Platform (completely open like a book)
