I have include the link above so that you can both have written directions and also the link to their video .

I liked this card because it was simple and yet different in that it has multiple panel and is a great way to use up scraps… it would be easy to make up the base ahead of time and event cut some decorative pieces to go on the front and the flaps and then you would be able to assemble it quickly and have unique card for those last minute needs. Also since most of us are home a lot these days thought you could go ahead and make them up and then all you have to do is sign them, Of course this also requires that you will need a place to store them and the ablility to remember that place…lol and also you will have to be willing to use them… my biggest problem is that I see what I have made and I know I will forget it so I end up saving them for samples and never mailing…..ok nod your head if you do that too.  I could scan them  on my Computer, but then I would forget them there too. Still as my hubby would say it keeps us out of the bars ( which currently are not open in lots of places )

DAWN’S LARGE EXPLOSION CARD

I gave the link so you could see how to fold this card its really quite simple but I always do better with a video.  I made this small one using the same folding techniques but on a 4×8 piece of card stock .. Score each end at 2 and the fold the flaps down as shown in the video…I did not put this one inside a base card but merely left it as is and mailed it.

explosion folded closed this is the 4x 8 size

small explosion card with out a base just the explosion

 

same basic folds except that the inside is using a lighter weight (text) paper.

Again this is the 4 x 8 size and its the one I use most often  I did cut the base card slightly larger as I never seem to get my papers the exact same size so for me its easier to make the base slightly larger and then insert the explosion so that if fits evenly.  It must be the paper trimmer that doesn’t cut them the same as I am sure its not me.

HUMOR

My better half finds these jokes on the web and shares them with me and this one is so true because we have the ice thing in the door and its forever shooting ice out on the floor which because the floor is white and the ice is clear no one finds till we step in the water with our bare feet…at which point we have no idea who melted it.  enjoy

 

AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY.… wire headed cyber toad aka kath
