Today I am thrilled to be taking part in the Ink & Share blog hop again. You will have arrived from Deb Naylor’s post. This month’s theme is Masculine ~ I always find it so hard to create for the fellas – so I am looking forward to seeing what the other contributors to this hop are going to share so I can get some more inspiration.
Today I have used the Rooted in Nature stamp set with the coordinating Nature’s Roots Framelit Dies and taken on the challenge to make a never-ending card – there are lots of videos out there on this fold BUT they are all square and since here in the US we have to pay additional postage for a square card I have found a way to make this fold so that the card size is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and will fit in a regular envelope!
Card base: 2 pieces of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Sahara Sand Card –
- First piece scored @ 1 3/8 from each edge on the LONG Side.
- Second piece scored @ 1 1/16 from each side on the SHORT side
Yes………… I know that cutting and scoring in 1/8’s and 1/16’s can be a bit fiddly but with the Stampin’ Trimmer it is very easy!
- 4 pieces 2 x 1 1/4 Nature’s Poem DSP (same pattern)
- 6 pieces 2 5/8 x 2 Nature’s Poem DSP ~ choose different patterns and cut 2 of each one to get total of 6 pieces
- 1 piece 2 1/2 x 1 7/8 Very Vanilla Card ~ this is for writing your message.
Ink Colors: Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand
Here’s what to do with all the pieces:
This is the view inside the first fold with the space to write your greeting,
Inside 2nd Fold
I have kept the decoration to a minimum as most of the fellas in my family are not much into ‘fuss’ but you could just do as much embellishment as you can fit into the space – one thing to be aware of though is to make sure nothing extends over the folds otherwise it will get damaged when you start the folding!
