card was inspired by the wedding invitation I made for Vicki ealier
I wanted to add the colour column at the end of the card and
then make it part of the overall design.
I thought about scoring the
card in “half” at a different position, so it created a larger card, and wouldn’t need the folded back column.
The measurements I tried using made it too big for our standard
I could have carried on and then given intructions for making
an envelope that would fit.
instructions include two strips 1″ x 5 3/4″.
A narrower strip could be
used for the second strip but, by keeping it at 1″ made it easier for
affixing it to the folded back strip, as the finished width of the
exposed piece needed to be a specific width.
A friend in
Australia came up with the excellent suggestion of colouring the Baker’s
Twine, using ink or Marker Pens.
This is why I get called lastminute.com! LOL!
If you decide to make
this card, I would recommend you colour some Baker’s Twine well in
advance, or take the easy option and buy some!
The flowers make me think of poppies, one of my favourite flowers!
going to give myself a challenge, regarding my videos – fingers
crossed! I’ll start by making it easy, and extend it if I’m able to keep
up with it!
For five Wednesdays’ videos, I’m going to make “fancy fold”
cards! Watch this space!
That’s it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
