Holiday Blitz Tutorial: Screen Divider Card

Today's tutorial is a great one to use all year long - these Screen Divider Cards are easy to make for any occasion, and easy to mass-produce too.  I used a Penny Black stamp from this year's Christmas release to decorate my panels... I cut them before really thinking - next time I'll stamp and paint first, and then divide the full panel into 4.


I used a Spellbinders die to cut my legs - I lined it up on the sticky side of a Post-It note, and then used the edge of the paper to align the die each time. That worked pretty well!


The openings at the top were cut with an Impression Obsession Fancy Cutout Border die.


These cards would be a great way to use up a stack of backgrounds, like the file of gel prints I have... I think 4 narrow photos would be cute for a family Christmas card too.


The card folds up to fit into an A2 envelope with its 5-1/2" height - it would be easy to adjust the height and measurements to fit other envelope sizes as well - maybe a tri-fold for a business envelope? Next time.

Join us all this week for beautiful holiday tutorials during our Holiday Blitz event!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Fun! I really like the floral/poinsettia theme for Christmas. We made something similar at a recent crop with a Halloween theme. The upper die cuts are a nice touch!

    I am glad you did a tutorial for this card, which I was looking foe. Yours is very pretty. Would you be kind enough to provide the paper measurements and score points? Thank you
    Linda
