Hearts Come Home Bridge Card

Hearts Come Home Bridge Card

Step 1:
*Cut the base at 4 1/4 x 8. Score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2,and 6 3/4. 
*Cut the bridge piece (front) at 4 x 5 5/8. Cut the church thinlit out of this placing the steeple as high as you can. Hand cut to the ends to release the cutout piece.. You will trim the edges to fit later.
*Cut the back house piece at 3 x 3 3/4.
*Cut the designer series paper for the back at  2 1/2 x 2 3/4 (may want just a smidge wider) and 4 more pieces at 1 x 4 for the four sides.

Using Versamark  stamp Joy To The World in the center of the Bridge piece. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  *Tip: The embossing buddy will help you not have gold flakes around the words after heat embossing.

Step 3:
Emboss the bottom only of both cut house pieces with the falling snow embossing folder. 

Step 4:
Fold on all score lines on the base. Add the designer paper to each panel. 

Step 5:
Lay the houses down on gold foil paper. Trace around each house (and the church) with a pencil. Hand cut these and tape them to the back of each house.

Step 6:
Use dimensionals to attach the back houses to the back panel. Be sure the card will lay flat when the smaller panels are closed over it. 

Step 7:
Punch a gold foil strip to fit (5 5/8 inches) using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. Tape it to the bottom of the bridge piece.Tape the bridge piece to the front of the card using Tear Tape for extra hold. Be sure to only tape on the two front side panels so the card will fold flat both right and left to fit in the envelope. Trim off any excess from the bridge piece sides. 

Step 8:
Use a Glue Dot to attach a small bow near the embossed words.
