I have received my nice comments on my special-fold butterfly card .
Today I show you another of those special folding cards, this time with a little tutorial.
This time I have made a male card for a special birthday.
The sketch is from Dutch Card Lovers, I have used it on the front.
The pretty design papers ( Country Home Pk 9099 )
and dies ( clock CR 1234 ) are from Marianne Design.
The three clock charms from my charm collection.
The stamps are from Whimsy (Time flies sentiment set ).
When you open the ribbon , you can open the card.
This space is perfect to write your wishes...
the numbers are cut with a Tim Holz wordplay alphabet die-
step one take a cardstock of 13, 5 cm x 27 cm
fold it with a gateway fold
( long side more or less score at 7 cm and at 20 cm )
now take another card, more or less 21 cm x 12
and fold in half
now glue it inside the gateway folded card like this
when you open the gateway folded card it looks like this
seen from the top
Now you can decorate with design papers and stamps, flowers, dies you name it.
Important the ribbon will only be glued on the front under the image
and not on the back otherwise it will not open!!
Hope it is clear enough...otherwise just ask me..
Here is another one I have made..
