Corner Fold Card

Corner Fold Card1

I really love this card. Its looks so effective and it is very ease to make.

I found it on Pinterest, and thought that it would be a great card to share.

I’m sorry about the shaking on the video as I’m colouring in, and I also forgot to tell you that I use watercolour paper for the flowers as it can withstand a lot more water than our regular White Daisy card stock.

So here are the measurements, video and cutting guide:

Card: 5-1/2’ x 4-1/4’

Front Panels: 1st 2-1/2’ x 2-1/2’ White Daisy

2nd  2-3/4’ x 2-3/4’ Card Stock

Inside Panels: 1st 4-5/8′ x 3-3/8’ White Daisy

2nd 5-1/4’ x 4’ Card stock

Stamp sets: Hawaiian Hibiscus B1527 and Joyful Birthday B1419

  1. Open the Card and place into you trimmer on the 8-1/2’ side at the 3’
  2. Place the blade on the cutting arm @ 2-1/2’ and cut down to 4-7/8’
  3. Turn and place the card in on the 5-1/2’ side @ the 3’
  4. Place the blade @ the 5/8’ mark and cut down to 3’
  5. With the card facing you, flip the top corner toward you and press the side flat.
  6. Add some tape runner to the bottom of the square and attach to the card.
  7. Stamp the greeting at the bottom of the card.
  8. Attach the inside panels to the inside of the card.
  9. Attach the two squares to the front of the card.
  10. Using memento ink, stamp the flower and two leaves onto some  watercolour paper
  11. Using watercolour pencils, colour in the centre of the flower in a radiating out pattern from heavy to light. Do the same with the leaves, the darker green in the middle and the lighter green on the outer edges.
  12. Using the fin tip paint brush and water, gently draw the colour from the inside to the edge of the flower .and for the leaves, blend the two colours together.
  13. Colour the centre stamen in yellow and blend the pencil strokes.
  14. Fussy cut out the flower and leaves, and using 3D foam attach them to the front of the card.

Panel Fold Card

Panel fold card1

Here is the Panel Fold Card that I found on France Martins YouTube channel, and I just loved the fantastic effect of this card, and that it’s not very hard to make.

Panel fold card2

On the one in the video I placed the ‘Best Friends’ stamp at the top of the panel, but then I realized that it was hidden under the front greeting. So I made a new card and placed it down the bottom between the two Flamingos, as shown in the picture.

This one is made using the New Calypso Paper and the Tickled Pink stamp set and Thin Cuts.

Paper Coffee Cup

Here is the coffee cup that we made in my Advanced card class last month.

The original  idea came from Lorraine Rowland from Launceston . Hers had six side but I changed mine into eight sides to give it a more rounded effect.

Some of the lady,s in my class loved this cup and thought that it would make a great gift for someone at Christmas or birthday, filled with specialty Tea bags or coffee sachet or hot chocolate and  mini marshmallows.

Curtain Fold Card

Here are some of the Curtain Fold Card made using the New Florence Paper and the New Calypso Paper.

I have also used the new “A Bunch of Love” stamp set and the Thin Cuts to match, and the ShinHan Markers to add some colour , as well as some Shimmer Trim and bling to finish off the cards.

Here are the Measurements and Video:

Card: Standard Card 5-1/2′ x 4-1/4′

Paper Curtain Panel: 9-1/2′ x 2-3/4′

score on the 9-1/2′ side @ 2′, 2-1/2′, 3-1/2′, 4′, 5′, 5-1/2′ & 6-1/2′

Turn to the other end and score @ 1′, 1-1/2′ & 2-1/2′

Or if you have a 12′ scoreboard:

score @ 2′, 1/2′, 3-1/2′, 4′, 5′, 5-1/2′, 6-1/2′, 7, 8′ & 8-1/2′ 

Top Panel: 4-1/4′ x 2-3/4′

Shimmer trim: 4-1/4′

and a piece of White Daisy to stamp your image on.

IMG_0911[1]

With the 2′ side to your left. Make a mark on the right hand side @ 1′ as shown on the diagram. Also make a small mark on the 2′ score line at the bottom as shown.

Place into your trimmer so that the two pencil marks are in the cutting channel, and cut away this section.

With the 2′ section to the left, the 1st score line folds to the left and the 2nd folds to the right. Repeat this all the way across the paper.

Add a small amount of adhesive to all the 1/2′ folded sections to keep them in place. Attach to the front of the card under the top panel and add the shimmer trim over the top to hide the join.
