today I’d like to show you a card including tutorial I have made for consideration for the forthcoming Magnolia Ink Issue. The card has been already shown from Magnolia on Facebook as Summer Inspiration, thank you, so I would like to show you today the card also.
You may remember the card style I have been making this card since probably 2008 my very first card used the first Princess Tilda where she is holding a frog in her hands. The card folds up and in the inside you will have a square page where you can add matching images or just a plain sentiment. I skipped that part on this card since it was probably going to be photographed for the magazine anyways from the front only.
Supplies used on my card:
Magnolia ink Double sided paper Blue vintage hydrangea
LaLa Land Heart tree die, Magnolia Doo Hickey Envelope die, Doo Hickey Tildas tag, Doo Hickey
Other: Gesso, pearl, Prima Marketing flowers, burlap, Distress ink, Brushes, Water colour paper, seam binding ribbon, Stickles,
1 sheet double sided Designer paper (DSP)
I used Magnolia ink, paper trimmer, 12” paper cutter, scoring tool, bone folder, Adhesive if desired
to finish card:
stamps, sentiments, ribbon, dies and flowers
Step 1: Cut DSP to 11x11
Fold DSP into a triangle shape, by folding paper corner to corner.
score on long side of your Design paper on each side (left and right tip) towards the inside at 5.5” and 3”
score on the tip of your triangle shape at 3.5. Making sure you will get a straight fold.
Step 6: burnish all your score lines with your bone folder
Step 7: pick up your 3 inch tip and lift it up. The paper naturally will make a little pocket. Fold paper down and create a “diamond shaped pocket
Play with the top tip you use to tuck in your diamond pocket. You can now have either the right side of your DSP or the wrong side of your DSP showing. If you decide to have the opposite pattern showing simply tuck one triangle in the front pocket and fold the second piece to the backside. Adhere.
Decorate the outside of card with one of Magnolia’s wonderful Tilda images, color, cut image out and adhere to front of card with dimensional adhesive. Personalize your card on the inside with a pretty sentiment Magnolia has to offer.
