Michele's original card
Good Morning Ladies,
I know how much you all loved this amazing card that Michele shared with us for Mixed Craft Saturday a couple of weeks ago, I am so pleased to share with you the Tutorial for this card that Michele has done in step by step fashion.
Here’s how I made the fancy fold card from 12x12 thin card.
Use a plain piece of 12 x 12 thin card for the base & some patterned papers
I used the papers below for the inside of the card as they’re patterned on both sides.
Score the plain card at 6 inches as shown for the base card.
Cut one square out & keep it to use later.
On the reverse side of a piece of 6 x6 paper, mark as shown and use a craft knife to cut the X in the centre.
When you turn your paper over you need to fold back the 4 triangular flaps.
This is the piece glued down. I glued the tiny points down but used 1mm foam pads on the larger part-as shown to give a bit of interest so it’s not all flat.
On the 2nd square I cut a piece out in the centre to make room for a tag. Using double sided tape I stuck down the 3 edges & added a decorative trim. The tag is a piece of embossed Kraft card from my stash.
The 3rd Square has 2 panels of paper-one full size and one trimmed to allow the base paper to be seen. The corner was folded & glued.
I trimmed the 6x 6 paper I used on all the panels slightly to allow room for folding.
This is the card assembled & I’ve added some Diecut Poinsettias. …….
I Hope this makes sense to everyone, if you get stuck then just ask me to explain it again.
Thank you so much Michele for an fantastic tutorial, I can't wait to have a go when I get home, I look
forward to seeing everyone's version of this card.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
