Screen Divider Cards for my Project of the Week at Repeat Impressions

It is my turn today to share a Project of the Week at Repeat Impression's blog and mine and I am showing how to make a screen divider card. I am loving making these types of cards because it gives the card maker four canvases to tell a story or express wishes for the lucky recipient. I always start with a 12 inch wide piece of cardstock and score at 3,6, and 9 inches. The height can vary depending on what stamps, punches and embellishments you choose. This card started out 8 inches high and I punched the trellis border along the top with a border punch by Martha Stewart. Here is a picture showing the first two panels closer up:

Each of the inside panels were cut 2 1/2" by 6 1/2". For the first panel, I created a border with temporary tape and sponged with a light caramel ink. Then I stamped Repeat Impression's Divi Tree three times. I removed the border tape and stamped the Divi Tree and Joy & Good Wishes in black. On the second panel I die cut a window with a die from Tonic Studios and stamped RI's "Dream Calligraphy" in black. Here is a picture of the next two panels:

I simply stamped RI's beautiful fan in the corners and the Sanskrit "Look to this Day" advice on the third panel. I decided the advice and wishes would be perfect for a graduate, so I stamped the graduation congratulations in red and cut out with an oval stitched die cut from My Creative Time. I punched the bottom of the last panel to match the top and left plenty of room to write a personal note and sign the card. This is how the card looks from the top when it is standing up for display:

I am hoping you enjoyed this screen divider card tutorial. Thanks for visiting our blogs!

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafty Catz and Jo's Scrap Shack.
