SCS NEVER ENDING FOLD  and DAWN’S 6 FOLD CARDS

Ok I am sharing two different yet similar cards one from SCS and the other from DAWN… I do think they are both cute but I admit I have not tried the SCS card and may not because I do find it a bit busy plus it makes a bigger card than I usually send means you have to have a lot more embellishments, stamps etc….however, I know friends who would love this they don’t send as many cards as I do or they have some really special they went to do a card for and this would just make their day…so here are the images for the SCS CARD AND THE LINK IS BELOW IT…Neverendingcardstep19

SCS NEVER ENDING CARD

NOW Dawn’s card was much more to my liking maybe due to the colors and images she used ( the other one was a bit too cutesy for me) but a lot due to the fact that when closed to mail it it is a 4×4 square….the other is more like a 4+x 6 card and as I said meant more embellishments… I also liked Dawn telling you in the video that thinner cards stock /designer paper was going to work better than thick cards stock…. So here are Dawn’s samples and then below is her link in blue…

DAWN’S 6 FOLD CARD

I will also tell you that even her card got a bit busy for me but at least she is showing you to use the designer paper rather than try to fill all the spaces with stamps and stickers etc.  Also she does have extra layers white base, black layer then designer layer… I went with just  two layers the base and then my other color or designer paper and maybe stamps etc… that worked for me…

HUGE HINT…On my first one you will notice that I did accidentally cut my two triangles so that instead of meeting in the middle they were both sides the same….well I decided that once the designer papers were on it wouldn’t make that much difference so I DID NOT THROW IT AWAY…LOL..I went ahead and use it and I think it looks just fine but to prove to you that I can in fact follow directions I did a second one and got it right so don’t sweat the small stuff but really look before you cut those triangles on the card you might even want to make the one you want to cut off just so you don’t make a mistake …have a few friends who freak if they don’t get it perfect… PERFECTION IS FOR HALLMARK…not me… lol…

Here are both my efforts with their belly bands on…

kh 6 fold cards folded closed

Now if you look at them very closely you can see that the one on the right with the flower /butterfly has a triangle showing at the bottom that’s because that’s the one that I accidentally cut both triangles going the same way….duh

kh 6 fold cards ½ openas you can see both the bottom /top flaps are folded closed and you can see that the two triangle are both going in the same direction so they are going to overlap rather than meet in the middle… like this…

kh 6 fold cards closedas I said I don’t mind this the meeting is nicer but this is ok…and remember most people won’t know it was an error… lol…

Ok then here it is totally open and I think it looks great…I did only use one layer on each side designer on the outside and light weight off white on the inside…kh 6 fold cards ½ open 1then this is one that I did correctly and I used sorta oriental black and white paper on the outside and then red on the inside…and you can tell that the triangle flaps are going in opposite directions so that they will meet in the middlekh 6 fold cards folded closed 1

Ok this is it mostly open just the lower right corner closed so you can see the layer of the oriental paper …again I only used one layer of paper on both of these cards because while I think the double layer on top of a base card is lovely for me it does get awfully thick and harder to fold closed plus I just didn’t think that my design needed it…

Since my card is also 8x 12…the scoring is the same as Dawn’s and the layer I used is ¼ inch smaller so 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ for the square in center and the triangles then the rectangles are 1 ¾ x 3 ¾  then the little squares are  1 ¾ x 1 ¾ ….if you are adding another later to each of them then you will need to cut each of your pieces ¼ inch smaller ..just as Dawn shows ….but i would recommend that you use only text weight paper if you are going to create 2 layers on top of the base card…

Have fun while this looks complicated…it really isn’t and it does make a very impressive card…at least I think it does…

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