2 FOR 1…4 fold card…SCS AND DAWN

YIPES.. you won’t believe this but both DAWN AND SCS…had a post on how to do this card and I did make one then forgot to copy it and now its at my daughter’s as I gave it to her for birthday….DUH…this is what happens when you are under the gun to “GET ER DONE” and then you dash out the door to celebrate and forget to take photo…. I am going to try another and this time maybe I’ll remember to scan it for the blog..

DAWN’S 4 FOLD CARD so here is Dawn’s image and the link to her video…6a00d8341c09ea53ef01b8d192facb970c-450wi

ok this was pretty simple just takes a little time to cut the four panels…but its not that hard… and they line up pretty easy if you are careful with your cutting…. you can even use your soapstone pencil ( available at sewing stores or amazon of course) and after you cut the first one you can lay it on each of the other panels and draw the circle or whatever ever shape you want on it so that you cut them each in the same spot…you can then rub the soapstone mark off with a paper towel or just leave it as its on the side that eventually gets glued together so no one will ever see it when the card is finished…. AS DAWN SAYS “LOVE IT”…

 

SCS FOUR FOLD CARD…this is basically the exact same card with ONE DIFFERENCE..they cut four images to hang in the center…I think this was over kill…you really can’t see them unless you make an effort to open them… I think just two back to back works just fine and because it is lighter in weight will flip a little more easily… but I also want ed to show you this one so you could see that you can use the heart shape for valentines  so it doesn’t have to be a circle but for the heart or any other shape you will need nesting dies so that one in hanging position has room to move a little…

SCS 4 FOLD WITH 4 INSERTS AS WELL

WITH the one that I forgot to scan…I was using one of the round TIM HORTON birds so I did use the die cut for it after I water colored it with the inktense pencils ..then I use a  wobble spring and stuck onto a circle that fit in the center of my cut out on the back side I just used HAPPY BIRTHDAY ..then as you can see in the video this will fold mostly flat to mail ..but it will need the extra postage if you are mailing it…. ok…

WELL I am sure you have discovered that the was started back in Jan as that is when both SCS and DAWN posted them……they are so cute and I do like them and yeah sorry I didn’t finish the blog sooner but what I can tell you is that life happens…

I think you should give them a try and while you can cored you might have handy you can use fishing line or even dental floss just make sure that you seal it down on the card stock so that it holds or you will have to send a note with your card that says …some assembly required..
