The Folded Card Tutorial

Hello everyone!

Today i will show you how to make such a folded card: 

Inside of a card there is a pocket for money, a small present or/and a tag where you may write your congratulations and wishes:

And here it comes a tutorial:

1. Fold a paper as it is shown on a picture under. Simply mark middle point on every edge and fold accordingly. I used double sided paper form Prima. The size of a paper is 20x20cm. You may use any size of a paper but it has to be square.  

2. Prepare the pocket for oyur card. I used a triangle pocket.

3. Apply glue only on edges of a pocket.

4. Distress edges and glue a pocket on a card.

5. I made a tag and decoratet an inside of a card at this point, but you may do it at the end...

6. Make a top cover of a card. Mine is size 14x14cm.

7. Glue the top cover on one of the corners of a card.

8. Glue a ribbon to the backside and top cover of a card.

9. I used one more layer of a paper on a top cover. Now the card is ready to be decorated ...

10. When you are done with decoration simply fold a card and tie a ribbon. Here is your card ready :)

Have a nice and creative day!

A Flower Basket

Hello again!

Today is a day when a new challenge starts at Anonyme Scrappere. And this time the challenge is "THREE (3)". It means that three things have to dominate on the creation, like: 3 papers, 3 flowers, 3 ribbons, 3 pearls, 3 stamps, etc. Even if it is a minimalistic creaiton, it has to be something 3. And it has to be writen on your blog, which things are 3 on your creation.

Here is my contrbution: A Flower Basket. Something a little bit different for a birthday present.

I used:
3 papers
3 stamps
3 punches
3 roses
3 rosebuds
3 leaves
3 butterflies
3 ribbons.

And even 3 types of glue, he he...

From a top with a present inside:

Have a wonderful and creative day!

A Card "Til Konfirmant"

Hello there!

Today I will show you a card "Til konfirmant". 

It is a napkin folding card I made for OVA new challenge "Napkin card". This time the challenge sponsor is The Craft Barn with a £20 voucher to spend in their store!

As well these two weeks we have 'til konfirmat' weeks at Kortgleder. And this card is made for this occasion. 

I used edge dies MFD 019 for the front page around the picture and ribbon, dies MFD014 for the text window and corner dies MFD027 from Nellie Snellen. I embelished a card with Strass stones from Nellie Snellen. The edges around the card made with MS punch. The text stamp is from INKIDO, and papers from BG and 7gypsies.

Have a most wonderful day!

LO "Angel" (DT OVA)

Hi everyone!

Today is a new day and Our VIntage Affair has announced a new LO challenge. This time a challenge is all about using THREE LACES (not ribbons, but laces) and a SKETCH. Here is my take on a challenge LO "Angel"

This LO "Angel" is also made for Papirdokkene challenge #2 "Scrap a song". This time is was Chris Medina "What are words".

I used BoBunny paper, but simply cut out the different color layers, so it would look like I used three different papers. The photo is of Ulrika when she was 2. When she looks at me with those innocent eyes, I feel blessed, like it says in the words of the song:

"...I know an angel was sent just for me..."

Thanks for visiting!
