Kick Stand Cards

I've gotten several questions regarding the Kick Stand card invites, so I'll just address them here. They're really very simple to make! I'll write it out in a few easy steps for you...

1. Cut cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11, and score in half like a regular tall tent card.

2. Trim 1 1/4 off the bottom of the card front.

3. I like to use a pretty patterned paper here. Cut it to 4 in square, and mat to front.

4. Stamp your main image and mat it on some sort of scalloped layer (if you like scallops!). I prefer the circle, but I've also used squares and ovals. I usually use my Marvy Giga punches for this.

5. Lay your card face up on your table, and adhere the main image so that the bottom of it is lined up with the bottom of the card back (inside of the card).

6. Add some coordinating patterned paper to the inside of the card. If it's dark, you might need to layer a small panel of WW to write on/stamp your sentiment.

7. Finish with your embellies! I have to ALWAYS have ribbon on mine, but I'm a ribbon junkie! :)

Hope that that answers every one's questions. If you have more, don't hesitate to ask! I will plan to make another KS (kick stand) card soon for one of my MFT sneak peeks, but you can find some of my other ones HERE!

And now I'm off to go play a little Hide-and-Seek with my baby! Have a good night!



  1. Thanks for these directions! I need to try one sometime. ;)

  2. I love this card! I just so happens that I have to make a birthday card for one of my son's friends. This will be perfect. Thanks for posting directions, I have been wanting to try a kick stand card!

  3. Thanks for sharing this...I'm going to try it out!


So what do you think?
