What you need
A4 Sheet Cristina Re Red Spots & Stripes Paper (each sheet will give you 2 cards)

Paper trimming & scoring method of choice

How to do it
Using preferred cutting method, cut the Quartz card to 95mm x 205mm.Print the Quartz card with own invitation wording leaving a margin at least 35mm above the first line of text.
Using preferred trimming method cut the Red Spots & Stipes Paper along the long edge creating two equal pieces of 105mm x 240mm. Using preferred scoring method, very lightly mark a crease at 210mm, leaving the card flat.
Turn the Spots and Stripes paper to portrait orientation with the small flap at the top. Using the Hi-Bond Tape, apply a small strip underneath the score mark on the larger bottom half of the card. Attach the Quartz card under the score mark leaving an even border of 5mm of Spots and Stripes Paper showing on the left, right and bottom edge.
Cut the Black Ribbon into 12cm lengths. Thread through the Silver Buckles.
Fold over the flap but do not attach with adhesive yet. Place a strip of Hi-Bond Tape along the centre front of the flap, peel off the backing and carefully lay the ribbon straight along the tape leaving approximately 10mm over at each side. Move the buckle into the centre and then press firmly to achieve maximum adhesion.
Fold the flap up again. Place strips of Hi-Bond Tape on the underside of the flap. Make an effort to cover as much of the flap as possible. Fold in the edges of ribbon. Fold over to attach to the bottom half of the card and press firmly to achieve maximum adhesion.
Insert completed card into the DL Quartz envelope.
