Well Hello again, sorry I was not able to Blog my last card in time for the challenge, something went drastically wrong with my blog and I couldn't access it...as I am not very Computer Literate it has taken me a while to sort it out.
Anyway here I am back in time to host this fortnight's Challenge I have chosen 'A different shaped or folded card' I just thought it would be fun to see some different cards to the regular square folded cards which are what I usually make. It does not have to be Origami, just more than the one simple folded spine but that doesn't mean complicated. For example an easel card is just a couple of folds for the base and then another shaped mat fixed on with your main image on. You Tube is always a good place to start.
These days you can even get dies to create these basic shapes and just dress them up, I have made Stepper cards in the past and the measuring just drives me mad, but recently bought a die from Crafters Companion to speed up the job leaving me more time to play around with the decoration. Here is my card:
I needed a couple of new Home cards for two of our younger family members who have moved away to university so was lucky enough to have a freebie from a magazine which had stamps, papers and a little die all to do with Bees and both my granddaughters are mad about the environment and conservation especially Bees so these were perfect. Once I had formed the base by cheating with a die it was playtime ...fiddly making bees but I love them. I managed 2 sweet little cards in an afternoon.
Here is a closeup of the Bees ...cute eh!!
Bye for now, where is this year going to, it is almost time to make Christmas cards.... 'OOOOH NO I hear you cry'.... Love Annie xx
