Hello everyone – the countdown is finally over hooray! The new catalogue is not only here but I will be placing my first order tonight so if there’s anything you’d like me to add please let me know.
Last week a friend of mine had a birthday and her husband’s birthday is on the same day so it was a ‘two-for-one’deal. The card I made for her used a fancy fold technique and designer paper from one of our new in colours – fresh fig, and it has become one of my new favourite colours. Fresh fig and gold is a real stunner! The card uses four designs of the paper – a different design on each ‘page’ of the card. I’ve also made a matching envelope using the envelope punch board. The card is held together with a belly band decorated with the thin gold ribbon and a gold foil dragon fly.
The card measurements for the base card are 51/2″ x 11″ and scored at 11/4″, 4″, 61/4″ and folded mountain, valley, mountain fold.
4 pieces of designer paper are cut to fit each of the panels and one piece of whisper white cardstock 2/12″ x 51/4″ is used for the sentiment and to write on.
Items used in this project were Cardstock: fresh fig, whisper white, gold foil Stamp set: Dragonfly dreams Ink: Fresh fig Other: designer paper floral boutique in fresh fig, thin gold ribbon, trimmer, scoring tool, adhesive, glue dots, envelope punch board
I hope you enjoyed this project and stop by soon, please sign up for my newsletter if you haven’t already. Tomorrow I will post the card I made for my friend’s husband.
