First off, I’d like to thank everyone who sends me emails or leaves comments on my blog, I had very little confidence when I started my blog and you guys have made the world of difference to me, I value every single comment/message. I don’t always have time to answer every ones messages so I was thinking that I would make an FAQ Frequently Asked Questions (an idea from my fella) as I do get a few similar questions. One I get is about selling cards made from my files so I know I definitely need to make this point clearer for you, which is yes of course you can! There are a few other recurring questions too but if there is anything you would like me to include, I can’t promise to have the answer but I will do my best.
Ok, I have a different style of card for you today, I’m not sure what it’s called but I’m calling it a ‘bendy’ card. The idea is that the front panel is longer than the back panel so it bends outwards and the image/sentiment stays straight and appears to almost float on its own, one of the bonuses of the card is that it is free standing and is actually quite stable. I’m hoping to make different versions of this card for different events or celebrations so this could be the first of many so I hope you like it :)
I cut out my card in some burgundy textured card then coloured in the sentiment with a gold pen and drew a line along the edge of the frame around the sentiment with a ruler and more gold pen. The gold pen didn’t give the impact I wanted so I covered the gold areas with some glue and liberally coated with some fine gold glitter, any excuse to get the glitter out, right? I folded along the score lines then tucked the tabs from the front panel into the slits in the back panel, it is important to note that you insert the tabs from the back side of the card towards the middle so the front almost wraps around the card. I finish this card by adding a white piece of paper onto the back of the card to write my message as anything you write in the middle would show through.
