My Challenge card
Good Morning Ladies,
I thought we would try something a little different for our Challenge this week. I am pretty sure most of you will have made this shape/fold before but for those that haven't I have photographed the front and will share it below, you basically score down the centre of the card front and fold it back on itself.
I think the photos show it better than I can explain it !!
How you decorate the card is then up to you, using Nesting dies to make a framed image is the best way to decorate the front as it draws your eye across the card, linking the two sides.
I used the Petal Garden Suite paper pack to decorate my card with Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugarplum card. The 'The Happy Birthday' sentiment is from 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' stamp set.
As we go through the week I hope to show you different versions of this fold and I will show you how to cut into the front with a die too.
We had a fairly quiet weekend, the heat seems to make it harder for me to get around for some reason. We did pop to Decathlon Sports store yesterday as last year we bought an Inflatable Kayak for Paul and the girls to use on holiday, mainly because we always end up hiring them while we are away and buying one is cheaper in the long run, anyway after their first outing on it last year they tried to re-inflate it and it exploded, turns out there was a weakness on one of the seams, when we took it back they had run out of stock of that kayak so they refunded us and we out the money aside to buy it again in this new season
Both Paul and the girls decided that they would get more use out of a "Stand Up Paddle board" which is kind of like a big surf board, it's also inflatable so easy to transport and we bought the largest one so that they could use it together, it's good for them to surf with too. My enjoyment comes from watching them have fun!!
I hope that you are all well as we start another week, I'm sending hugs to all of you that aren't XX
Love and hugs to all,
