Happy Inky Weekends R the Best...
Wouldn't you agree? I just received my new releases from Karen at Your Next Stamp and they are so fun I can't wait to share! The next release will be November 18th so stay tuned!
I was commissioned to create two Birthday cards for a mom and daughter who have their birthdays on the same, day how cool is that? The man who commissioned them is a great friend of my husbands so I really wanted these to be special. I came across a Challenge blog Fun With Shapes & More,
their challenge is to use Folder Techniques here is the Tutorial page with 4 differenct styles. I just want to say WOW!!!! The cards they showed were amazingly jaw dropping. I knew this was my staring point. The card I am showing today is my last ditch effort to hold onto summer, we have but a few tiny butterflies and moths still lingering though I have no idea how they survive the nights!
I even stamped some butterflies to finish off the back of this card, this is pretty much a through & through card. I felt every side needed some sort of addressing. I would like to point out a few technical aspects to save you from too much distress. Those 2 small bottom flaps will not lay very nice if you don't score out 2 mm or so from the original fold forming a boxy type flap. This is especially important if you plan on adding dimension inside the card!!!! This is pretty much a 6 x 6 inch card but it doesn't fit in a regular envelope it's way too thick so I am using the seal able clear beans from clearbags and inserting a 6 x 6 piece of complimenting cs in front and behind the card. I ok'd it with my Post Master.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulously inky weekend!!! Beth
