Hello. A new challenge has started at Cardz 4 Galz. I wanted to get the year started with virtual hugs and to be able to let someone know I was thinking of them. The theme is ‘more than one fold’, chosen by Billie A:
I played around with some fancy fold cards, and even made another card for the challenge – but I wasn’t happy with it. This is Take 2…..
I made a ‘Z’ fold card – white card base – and added some Stampin Up ‘Peaceful Poppies‘ DSP – which I’ve had for ages and just never got around to using. I wanted to add some of the embellishments which came with this series – but they seem to have been ‘filed’ where I can’t find them!
Once the card and the paper layers were stuck down, I decided to add some simple die-cut sentiments in black – so they can stand out against this patterned paper.
Both the die-cut sentiments are from Lawn Fawn. The ‘Big Hugs’ in the middle of the card is white heat embossed onto black card, layered several times before being stuck down so you can see the ‘hugs’ when the card is closed, but ‘Big Hugs’ when the card is open.
‘Thinking about you’ is also Lawn Fawn – but it is very fine, and I found it a little too fiddly to layer it up, so stuck down with one layer only after die cutting.
I hope you can come and join us – and educate me into the various ways we can introduce more than one fold in our creations. xx
