Design Team Make - 11th August 2018 (More than one fold) - My Time To Craft Challenge Blog
Having been given a great opportunity to design makes for the "My Time To Craft" challenge blog, this week I've felt a little nervy and uncertain of my ability. The prompt for this fortnight is "More than one fold".
I'd played with several ideas and then decided I was over complicating things and went for a simple but hopefully classy make using four folds.
I cut a piece of pale blue card into a 12" x 6" size. I then scored down the shorter length at the following intervals 2", 4" 8" and finally 10". On the edge of the short side, I made a small pencil mark 3" down and cut from the 4" scoreline to the outer left 3" pencil mark. I then made another pencil mark 3" down the short edge and cut on a diagonal to the 8" scoreline. This provides the dropped angle of the card.
I wasn't sure how far to go with my stamping, so thought I would keep it clean and simple. I stamped the sentiment (from the Stampin' Up "One Big Meaning" set).
The Dandelions are from two Lavinia Stamps sets "Fairy Dandelions" and "Make a Dandelion". I've used Versafine "Smokey Grey" ink for all stamping.
Please do pop over to "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" to have a look at the other Design Team makes and maybe participate yourself.
PS: I forgot to add a photo of the card closed. Here it is Branwen x
