Because I struggle with card sketches, I like using Nestabilities dies to make quick cards. A few people have asked how they're constructed so this is a quick post to share how I make them.
Basically, you score the back Nestabilities shape about 1/2" down from the top, fold and attach to the front. For the Labels One die, I like to score about 3/8" to 1/2" from the top.
When using the circle scallop Nestabilities die, you have to count and score 4 or 6 scallops because there are an even number of scallops (22) and the card has to be able to stand on 2 scallops for viewing.
For the Nestabilities blossom die--which makes cute little cards--there are an odd number of scallops, so in order to make it stand, you have to score midway between three scallops in the back.
In the past, I've used a tape runner to attach the pieces together, but now I prefer a double stick tape.
I attach it to both sides of the card and it insures the card won't come apart with extra handling. It also helps to write your message inside the card before you attach the front and back pieces.
Hope this helps (Charlotte!) and here's a quick video by Lucy which shows how to make a card using the Labels One die.
