Now, I managed to get a picture downloaded of a card that my friend Tasha and I recently designed for Father's Day. Here it is
Sorry about the quality of the picture. It was taken with a phone and when it was downloaded, it faded. This is an A2 size card, but it was scored at 2.25 and 6.25 to make it a trifold card.
The paper is all CTMH. The center flap was made using 2 different sizes of Nestabilities and the Cuttlebug. One is in Denim Blue and the smaller one is in Colonial White. It is adhered to the left flap and then tied to the right flap to keep the card closed. 4 eyelets were used on it, 2 for decoration and 2 for the hemp tie. The lettering was stamped using the Typewriter Keys and then popped up.
On each side a 2 x 5.25" strip of Desert Sand paper was run through a crimper and then adhered to to the card with an ATG gun. Using stamps from the Enjoy Life set, we stamped first with Desert Sand, then Versamark and heat embossed with Denim Blue.
I am really pleased with how this card turned out. I really want to get my own crimper (we used Tasha's) now that I've seen how great it looks! It's like instant corrugated cardboard!
Hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend. I enjoyed a birthday surprise and finally, the sun has been shining here. I just wish the last of the snow would disappear and all of the flood water with it. Can't wait for summer!
