Sorry I have not posted for awhile, but after finishing the bathroom remodel, I came down with a real bad chest cold. My wife says that when I get one of my chest cold, I keep the whole neighbor hood awake with my coughing.
The card I am posting today was done for a workshop that I held. The purpose of the card was to demonstrate the "Folded Frame " element. It's an old technique, but well worth the effort to master.
Here is the card I made;
The image is from a stamp set from "The Angel Company" and it is called " Hoppy Everything"The instructions are simple. The first step is;
Take the 4 ¼” square piece of patterned paper, and use the Scor-Pal across the points at 1” and 1 ½” on all four corners. Points should be at the 3” mark. See photo below.
The pencil line in the middle of the sheet is for illustration only.
Once you have the paper scored, pre-fold the scores to form the frame. I used green ink and a sponge to color the edge of the frame. Cut your colored image to 2 7/8" X 2 7/8" to fit in the center of the folded frame. Use pop-dots to adhere the frame to the image.
Pretty simple, add some stickles and your done. If you have any questions about this card, please ask.
Just a footnote, while I was doing this post we had four power outages. Which means that I was getting pretty frustrated. As you can see I did finally succede.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
