As this month’s hostess Rebecca Ednie said “fancy folds are both fun and all the rage now”. So this week’s challenge is to make a card with at least 2 or 3 folds over at Crazy4Challenges
I got this set from Sizzix years ago, but just never used it and forgot about it. Then while looking for something else I ran into this set. So I decided to use it for this week’s challenge.
Step 1: Cut a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock down to measure 11″ x 5.5″. Score this cut pc. at 5.5″. Then turn it over and score one end at 2.5″. Now it should look like this:
Flip this piece back over and stencil clouds on it with PanPastel and Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil called “Clouds and Grass”. Leave 1.5″ on the lower edge white.
Step 2: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs 914 – Outdoor Edges – 3 die set (the plain wavy die in the middle) cut about a little more than a 1.5″ x 11″ strip out of green cardstock twice.
Step 3: Cut a strip of either the same green cardstock or white that measures 1.5″ x 11″. Now score it the same way you did for step 1.
Step 4: Using a green PanPastel, color the bottom white edge. Now adhere the step 3 strip to the bottom of the card with the longer panel of the strip attached to the shorter panel.
Step 5: Stamp all the images you want to decorate with and color them. Now cut them out with the coordinating dies.
Step 6: Add all your finished elements to create a little neighborhood. I added sea gulls from a set by Frantic Stamper called Flying Gulls.
