Hello friends. Playing along with the Double D Challenge
where they have an awesome mood board depicting WINTER BLUES for us to gain inspiration from for our cards.
I get together with a group of friends on ZOOM every 2 - 3 weeks where we take turns putting out a card sketch or different card fold for everyone to follow along with, and this past time we had a card fold that was soooo easy but different, and I just happened to use BLUE on the 2 cards I made, so perfect timing to join in this challenge!!
You take an 11 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock and score in half (5 1/2) and then score again at 6 3/4. Next you fold your card base in half and use adhesive on the inside inside the 1 1/4 score lines so that all that's left on the inside when you open the card is a square 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. Hopefully this next picture shows it better...
Before you glue it shut though you should decorate the outside, and if you're going to put ribbon where I did, put that around the inside before you glue it shut too. It really is just an ordinary A2 size card from the outside, but when you you open it up it's a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square card! Just something different!! I used SU!'s Snowflake Splendor DSP and Misty Moonlight cardstock for my layers and the snowman is from a older SU! set called We Woosh You that I stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I colored his nose with an orange Copic and added some WOS to certain areas of his body to look like glistening snow. The polka dotted ribbon is also SU!.
And because the card was so easy and fun to make, I made a 2nd card with more of the DSP from the Snowflake Splendor pack and used the "oh joy" sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set (SU!) as my main image...
This one was made the same way and I just switched up my Misty Moonlight and white layers, added the embossed "oh joy" (silver) and a snowflake (Gina K) die cut from holographic cardstock.
Two easy peasy cards that I think fit in beautifully with all the BEAUTIFUL blue cards from the DT and those already in the gallery! Check it out HERE
and play along...this challenge is open for the rest of this week.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
