From time to time I am asked to make a card for a particular occasion – I love to do commissions! I ask a few questions about the recipient….. color preferences, ornate, lots of bling, gender etc and then I start to put it all together.
This is a recent commission – I have done this style before and it starts with a piece of cardstock 12 x 12 and thru scoring and folding its finished size in 6 x 6.
I have included the link to the original video at the bottom of the post…. enjoy!
The base card is Very Vanilla starts at 12 x 12 then scored @3″ on each side. Some careful and trimming completes the card base. A Simply Scored is vital for a good finished result.
The front panels are in Elegant Eggplant, cut to 2 3/4 x 2 3/4. Two have been stamped with Timeless Textures Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. The opposite panels were embossed using the Big Shot and the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder. (The ribbon is from my stash – retired a few years ago!)
The inside panels are in Wisteria Wonder 2 1/2 x 2 1/4. The inside is decorated with Birthday Blooms Stamp set in Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Crumb Cake ink
The center panel in Very Vanilla cut to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
This card needs a special envelope – but that is easy with the Envelope Punch Board!!!!!!!
