I used Kit # 1 in all my cards this time.
My first card
I embossed the designer paper with SU square lattice folder and inked edges
next I am going to make a half fan fold rosette ( like TH die ) I am using the 6″ designer paper so cut 2 pcx of 13/4 ” by 6″ strips , use any edge punch the design the edges
next score every 1/2″ down the back sides of each strip
next flip your paper to show pattern side and score at every 1/4″ , by scoring each side it is much easier to fan fold
fan fold and add score tape to edge ( we need a 12 ” strip but we are using 6″ paper so we have to join to make 12″ strip
cut a half circle and hot glue rosette down to edge of half circle , set aside.
next we are going tom add glitter stripes to card , I use 1/8″ score tape and attach and peel tape and add glitter , how pretty does this look
assemble your card
wow now that was a whole lot of fun and inspiration….
Please leave a commit for a chance to win a girlfriend set of your own.
