We've made it to the last month for 2015! I haven't even started thinking of Christmas shopping (I still have to finish my nephews present from last year! - bad aunt).
This afternoon I finally got round to photographing a number of projects I created last month - now I need to blog them all. So first off are the two projects we created for my monthly card class. Seeing as we are close to Christmas I decided to do a card and a 3D project.
This is a fancy fold card called a 'Z' fold. The measurements for this card are:
Card base (Smoky Slate) - 10.5cm x 14.8cm (cut 2)
Mat (Real Red) - 9.5cm x 13.8cm (cut 2)
Whisper White - 8.5cm x 12.8cm (cut 1)
Z Fold insert - 9cm x 29.7cm (cut 1) - score at 13cm and 26cm
Adhere the 'Z' fold to the base first then close the 'Z' fold and put adhesive on the small flap of the 'Z' fold (this will then be attached to the back of the front section). Line the front to the back matching the left hand side first. This way your card will be aligned when closed.
I saw a number of samples of this Snap Close Box on Pinterest and they looked so cute. I managed to find a link to a video
by Keren sharing the measurements - thanks :). I made a few changes so that I could get two of these from an A4 sheet of cardstock. I will try and get my handwritten instructions done into a proper tutorial shortly and post here. In the meantime enjoy. The ladies had two colour options to choose from - Mossy Meadow or Real Red.
You may have noticed the red 'berries' - these are rhinestones coloured in with a red Sharpie marker - thanks Sally for that tip :)
