I have to admit that my first 2 attempts with design and color were epic fails... so I guess that the 3rd time is a charm.
Creating the base wasn't the issue at all... That was the easy part.
You'll need 1 sheet 11 inches wide by 6 inches tall (You can get 2 cards out of a 12 x 12 sheet or 1 card from an 8.5 x 11in sheet).
Score along the long side at 2.75, 5.50, and 8.25. Fold and crease well using a bone folder.
I used the eBrush to color and edge in yellow, orange and pink. I left some areas on each section front and back much lighter. Then using a stencil (mine is from Penny Black) if desired, stencil onto the panels. My sample project uses a piece of glossy stock.
Note: If you don't have an eBrush, grab your ink pads and daubers! You can get nearly the same look!
Once you've completed the personalization, sign your card, fold and tie with a ribbon. This card will fit in a business size envelope!
Thanks for dropping by! Hoping you'll get a bit of time to play this coming week!
