I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Today’s video is an
old favourite that totally fascinating i.e. the Never Ending Card!
The first time I made one of these it was for one of my grandsons’
birthday’s. Stephen was totally bowled over by his card and forgot
about opening by the parcels that were sitting on the
table waiting for him!
Before I made today’s video, I had a practice run with a
masculine card to remind myself how to make the never-ending
card. It only took me two card bases to remember what I used
to do to avoid haveing the flaps catching on each other!
After I made the masculine card, I started to plan a feminine design.
I knew this video was going to be a long one, so I made all the
images and sentiments I want for every page beforehand, and
made them beforehand.
This meant I didn’t know before I started what the finished card would
look like so I was on a wing and a prayer. It all went very well,
except for some reason, I didn’t get the section of the card where
only the top half is visible until the next part of the card is opened.
It threw me for a little while but I carried on and was really pleased
with the result. I would love to know how I avoided the partial
panels! Any ideas?
On Friday, when I said was going to post my blog four days
a week instead of seven, I should have said I will be posting a
new card or 3D project four times a week. This allows me to
post to my blog when I have news to share as opposed
to a new project! I hope this makes sense!
I wish you a very blessed Sunday, and until next time, happy crafting.

LOVE this idea……don't know if I have the patience. Will need to go through again and copy the measurements.
You are correct any square card in US requires extra postage (because it has to be hand cancelled).
Geraldine Homenchuk says
A M A Z I N G! Both the card & your patience. Someday (it'll have to be the "right" day of course, I am determined to try one of these … I cannot imagine how special it would make a person feel to be on the receiving end of one of these beauties. Thank you so much for going through this wonderful tutorial for all of us!! Bless you!

LOve the never ending card. But the measurements aren't here. Where are they?
Lorraine Turner says
I love this 'fun fold' card Jan, I am sure I have seen a "Never-Ending Card' made a different way as well. I love the colours and images you used on your projects too. Thank you for sharing them with us crafters. :O)
Lorraine Turner says
I love both the products that you have created Jan. I have watched a video tutorial in the past of 'Never-Ending Cards' and it wasn't created as you have done it. Now I have two different ways to use when creating these cards. I images and colour just go together amazingly well. Thank you :O)
Alison Claire says
Love your tutorials. Your cards are fab. Going to have ago at making this card. Thank you.
Jennifer Jones says
Jan in your video 388 on the never ending card, you say there are measurments in the box below, but there is no button to press to get to a box which will give measurements. Had to quickly write them down as you said them in the video.
Hi, Jennifer. Thanks for letting me know you found them. Happy crafting. xx
