Cardz 4 Galz – Fun Fold

Hello once again. Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge. This time we want to see your ‘fun folds’. It doesn’t have to be a card, but it does have to be papercraft related – a card, tag, layout – I decided to go with something a little different to my usual makes, and created a gift card holder:

I virtually attended the recent ‘Maker Mania 5’ and this was one of the projects on that intensive few days – a ‘Craft Along’ projects by the only UK company to be part of this event – Sir Stampalot, based in Peterborough.

I made the project using some different papers and embellishments, but the instructions and video were so easy to follow – I can see that I’ll make for little pressies in the future. It could be for any kind of gift card, so I’ll have to stock up on them

Following the written instructions – and watching the video yet again – I added all the paper layers to the base project.

The flowers are from left-overs from a previous card ‘Hey There’ snipped and added as you see.

The shabby ribbon is from my stash, bought ages and ages ago and used to tie the gift card holder together.

The gold embellishments were also part of the Maker Mania 5 kit – to add a little bling.

I hope you can come and join us with your ‘fancy fold’ creations – I look forward to seeing wat you create. xx

Hey there

Hello once again. I have created a card using the current colours for Color Throwdown:

I used Concord & 9th card stock to die cut the blossoms branch – light green, dark green, and Honeysuckle – the nearest to a plum I have.

Before sticking this down – snipped at certain places to create the look you see – I took some white card stock and splattered some pink.

This panel was adhered to the card base, then the altered blossom branch, and then I added some light pink sticky dots to the centre of the flowers, and some green dots to the bottom. The sentiment is a die from Time For Tea Designs.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdown – celery green, sage green, pale pink, plum

Crafty Catz – anything goes – option to add flowers

A Bit More Time To Craft anything goes
