Good Morning Ladies,
A very busy blog post today, first up I would like to wish our Very Dear Friend Pat a very, very Happy Birthday, it's a very Special Birthday too, I won't say which Special Birthday, only that you are now 58.3 + VAT !!!
So happy that we get to spend the day with you too xxxx
Now I am going to hand over to our lovely Janet, who has created an amazing tutorial on how to make her Easel card, I would love you to all have a go, we could have it as a mini challenge, I will give you until next Wednesday to send them in.
Here's Janet's tutorial.......
Janet's Zig Zag Card Tutorial
TUTORIAL FOR DOUBLE ZIG ZAG CARD 1 - Take 2 pieces of A4 size card - good quality GSM and cut each piece to measure 8" x 10". SCORE each piece at 4" 6" and 8" SEE FIG A. picture 2. Measure (each piece of card) 2.3/4" from the bottom at 8" score side. Cut from that mark to top edge of 4" score mark SEE FIG B picture. 3. Now fold your scored panels in mountain and valley folds on both pieces of card making your Zig Zag shape. 4. GLUE your two pieces of card together overlapping your 4" panels SEE FIG C picture. 5. You are now ready to decorate your Zig Zag card. Your will need 2 x 8"x 8" pieces of any patterned paper of your choice to cover the plain panels of your card. Only cover the planels which will be seen. If you are careful at cutting 2 pieces will be sufficient but if you're not sure than use A4 patterned paper. 6. You will need to choose a picture to place in the inside of your card making a theme of your choice. (I have used a picture of flowers set on a piece of music which I printed off Pinterest (make sure that if you do this permission has been granted for free use of the picture) 7. To fasten the front of your card use a die cut of your choice which will match your theme. As you can see I have used a die cut of a ball gown following my theme of music. You can now use your own Finishing Touches eg flowers etc to complete your card. HAPPY CRAFTING
