Before I show my card today, I just have to tell you how impressed I was with the 'masterboard' technique in this month's Craft Stamper magazine. I tried it out last night and I love the results I got. Maybe I'll share the results with you on here soon.
Okay, on to today's One Stop Craft Challenge. The lovely Shelley picked the theme of
Cards for kids
and I decided to make a card for an older kid. Shelley is giving away a cute teddy wood mounted stamp as the prize. Okay, I think you can see that I'm really having fun with these easel cards. Someone asked me to point them to the instructions. Well, I thought I'd share how I make them instead (which may be totally wrong - but it works for me).
1. a square card blank and
2. a square piece of card the same size as the front of the card blank.
1. Score the front of the card blank in half and fold the 'open' end back towards the spine.
2. Add double sided tape to the part that you just folded back and stick the square piece of card onto it, lining it up so that it makes a new 'front' to the card.
Then just decorate however you want to. That's all there is to it!
If you need me to show photos of these instructions just leave me a comment.
Hope you'll join us this week - and thanks to everyone that tried the newspaper/text challenge we had last week. There is lots of inspiration for kids cards on the challenge blog.
Thanks for looking.
