Hi Crafty friends !

I hope you are Ok Today's project is a card mix with scrapbook. I love the fact that it's really small when it's closed and can be really big when it's completely open.

I used the opulent corners die and sentiments from the Downton Abbey Collection with personal pictures to decorate the little squares,

I have attached the tutorial at the bottom of the page.

This is the inside of the card. I used the toppers from Angelica & Adam CD

That's the front of the card fully extended.

This is the back of the card with the pictures.

  This is what the pictures look like behind the front of the card !

Tutorial and Template
Step 1
First cut 3 squares in 20 x 20 cm. Take one of your squares of card and score it in half horizontally, vertically and (ONCE) diagonally as shown. Fold your card along the score lines to loosen the fold. Repeat the same with the other two squares.

Step 2
Lay the three pieces of card as shown in the graphic below with the diagonal folds going vertically and the middle card overlapping one corner-square of each of the other two.

Step 3
Apply glue to the whole of each of the two corner-squares where the sheets of card overlap. Stick down carefully so that the squares match. (don't cover the fold) otherwise your card won’t fold properly.

Step 4
 Squeeze in the corners of the outer pieces of card as shown.
Just push the top and bottom corners along the diagonal fold lines and press down firmly.

Step 5
7. Keeping the folds tucked in, turn the whole thing over and now squeeze in on the remaining diagonal lines.
Press down on the whole lot and you should have a square card.

Step 6
Now you can add your papers or pictures and match them nicely . Remember not to add dimensional objects inside because your card won't fold properly.

Step 7
On the back of the card stick a ribbon ( There needs to be enough to around the whole card and have enough to tie a bow) Then cover the ribbon with a nice topper.

Colorful Christmas

Hello Crafters !

I hope you had a lovely weekend Today's project is a simple but full of colour Christmas Card. I used distress inks to make the background in a Neenah card and I ran the blade of my scissors down the edge of the paper to give it a distress look. Finally I added die cuts from the beautiful Sara Signature Contemporary Christmas Collection.

Hope you like it

Shopping List

Distress Inks:
   *Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers
Seasonal Sentiment and Stylish Tree dies from Sara Signature Collection
Nennah Card
Sponge Dabbers
White Ribbon
Golden Mirri Card
Crafts Essentials

I flicked tiny water drops over the background for extra depth . The drops cause the water-based ink to run just a little and form an interesting watermark-like ‘texture’ effect.

I added extra dimension by using  8 layers of the Christmas tree die cut to give it a "chipboard" look.  Give it a try !  Just glue two die cuts together  and stack and adhere remaining layers on top of each other.

Products Used:

Seasonal Sentiment
Stylish Christmas Tree

Distress Inks
Neenah Cardstock
