STEP 1 - PRINT TEXT
Start by creating theInner Text Layer of your card. Using the Cristina Re Printstation 3 Program design and print your wording by selecting theCard Landscape option. You will be able to design two perfect A5 cards per A4 sheet. Follow the prompts to design your card in style! Once you have designed the text for inside the card, print onto Cristina ReBlush A4 Paper.
Begin another project on Prinstation3 for the Cover Text of the Thank You Card. Select your perfect font for the Thank You text, making sure it fits inside theCard Landscape guidelines. Follow the prompts to complete your design and print on Cristina ReBlush A4 Paper.
STEP 2 - TRIM LAYER 1 - INNER TEXT LAYER
Once theInner Text Layer has been printed with Printstation 3, trim your design using the Cristina Re
Paper Trimmer by following the guidelines to create two exact A5 pieces to measure 210mm x 148mm. Position the paper to a portrait format and fold down horizontally along the center (105mm).
LAYER 2 - COVER TEXT
Once yourCover Text has been printed with Printstation 3, measure your design to 148mm wide
by 45mm high and trim to size. This print out is to be attached on the cover of the Thank You Card exterior.
LAYER 3 - CARD BASE
To create Layer 3, theCard Base, use a single sheet of Cristina ReHydrangea Rose A4 Designer DIY Paper then cut the paper in half into two exact A5 pieces to measure 210mm x 148mm. This size will allow you to perfectly fit the card into a Cristina Re C6 Envelope. Next, position the paper to a portrait format on the Cristina Re Paper Trimmer and score the paper along the middle (105mm) to create a fold horizontally along the center.
STEP 3 - CONSTRUCT GLUE LAYER
Affix all three layers together using the Cristina Re Tape Roller. Start by inserting theInner Text Layerinside theCard Base and center the designs so the folds meet perfectly in the center before adhering with the Cristina Re Tape Roller. Next, fold the card in half to position theCover Text on the outside of theCard Base and stick down onto the the top of the card.
STEP 4 - EMBELLISH BOW & RIBBON
Now it is time to embellish! Measure a piece of Cristina Re Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon to the width of the card (148mm) and adhere with the Cristina Re Tape Roller to the cover, just below theThank You Cover Text. Finish off the cover by using a Cristina Re Ivory Adhesive Bow and center it in the middle of the ivory Grosgrain Ribbon. Make a glitzy statement by adding two Cristina Re Adhesive Rhinestones inside the card by positioning them either side of the text to complete your design.
STEP 5 - SEND ENVELOPE
Finally, encase and send your perfect Thank You Card inside a Cristina Re Ebony Linen C6 Envelope. Use a Cristina Re Ivory Adhesive Bow to seal the envelope or cut innovative shapes out of our Designer DIY Paper to impress your guests in style.
