Hearty Crafts Half Circle Flowers.

Hearty Crafts Half Circle Flowers


It is a sad fact of life to have to make a sympathy card. I thought the  Hearty Crafts Half Circle Flowers suited this purpose really well. 
A backing of plain card and Spellinders dies with a greeting finished my card.

Thank you for visiting my blog this week.

3D Box Card Tutorial

Today I would like to share a tutorial for  a new way to use 3D images. The cards fold flat into a normal sized for easy posting.

3D Box Card Tutorial 


You will need
Card 10 ¾” x 6”
Acetate 5”x3 ½”
3d image
Stickers
Score Board
I have used Hearty Crafts 3D paper Tole from Blue Edge Crafts and stickers from Sticker Store


Score the card from the left side at ¾”, 1 ¼”, 1 ¾”, 5 ¾”, 6 ¼”,6 ¾”
Burnish all the folds well.
Fold the score lines in the following way from the left.
Mountain, valley, mountain and the next score lines in the same way. 



Cut a 4 1/4”x 3” aperture in the first large section of the card ( see photo)
I cut mine with Spellbinders Matting Basics


Attach acetate to the inside of the opening using double sided tape 



                    Construct the  3D image and decide what type of background you would like.
I have used a Spellbinders die but you could add patterned paper or an embossed panel or just leave the background plain. 


Glue the image to the plain panel and then glue the card together using the first tab on the left.
Flatten the card down. It will fit into a normal sized envelope.
Decorate the front with stickers and a greeting.

Craft Mad Monthly Swap


Our theme for the Craft Mad Monthly Swap last month  was to make two cards for our partner using Navy Sea Green and Sand colours.
I immediately thought of the seaside. I backed my card with navy card added a very large tag with a circle cutout and used coloured sand for the three colours.
Added cork embellishments and a greeting and enamel dots.
