let's make a sandwich


I have received a few questions as to what the ‘sandwich’ technique is that I used this week on the Project Life Merci card  created for the Heidi Swapp blog.

so here today i am a goin’ to show you how that sandwich was created…

here’s what you will need:

1 4x6 journal card from the Gold Foil Project Life kit
2 3x4 journal card from same kit
1 scrap piece of card stock

+ 2 more 3x4 size journal cards or even plain card stock

trim a piece of card stock to a 1-inch width. 
trim that piece to 2 1/2-inches long so that you have 2 1-inch wide pieces.

score each piece in half length wise as shown in photo. i will now call these flaps.

add double side tape to one side of the flap and attach to the back of the 4x6 card. 
i like to use the American Crafts 1/4-inch This To That Double Sided Tape.

attach the journal cards to the BACK side of the card flaps. when the flaps are closed they will be seen properly on the front of the card.

the view to the inside of the cards shows the flaps. you could always keep it just like this, but i prefer to cover, or ‘sandwich’, those flaps with another piece of card stock.

and this is how it looks when that flap is all sandwiched up and covered up. on the left side the flap is not longer seen as it is on the right side of the card.

now finish up with another, embellish, stamp, and Color Shine at will. 

if you have ANY questions…leave a comment or message me on my page on Facebook here. i would be more than happy to help you.
