This is one of the Cards I worked on while doing Laundry!
The afternoon of the Hurricane Dorian!
A Christmas Card!
A Bridge Card!
This DSP is from one of my magazines from the UK.
Cardmaking & Papercrafts!
The Designer is Sally Mountains and the name of the DSP is Summer Meadow.
I thought this looked a bit more Winter than Summer!
That is what made me decide to make it a Christmas Card!
Here is a side view of the Card!
I ran a strip of Pretty Peacock Cardstock down the inside, sides!
And across the front (that is called the “Bridge Piece”)
Here’s the other side!
I used 4 different Foil Sheets:
Champagne Foil Sheet, Gold Foil Sheet, Silver Foil Sheet and Copper Foil Sheet
for the 4 Ornaments!
When stamping on Foil, you have to be careful not to let the stamp slip.
I then used Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (because the ink doesn’t dry on the Foil Sheet)
I then Heat Embossed all the Ornaments then, let cool.
I used the Gleaming Ornaments Punches to
punch out the Ornaments!
Here is the back of the Card, where I will sign the Card!
The instructions to make the Bridge Card:
card base- 4.25″ x 8″
score at: 1.25″, 2.5″, 5.5″, 6.75″ fold/crease the folds
Bridge piece- 1: x 5.5″ (inside piece 3/8″ x 5.25″)
middle piece- 2.75″ x 4″ (either cardstock or DSP)
sides: 4 pieces cut 1″ x 4″ (either cardstock or DSP)
Glue down all insides first. Decide placement of items like the Ornaments and the greetings! Do them first. Get Bridge piece ready. Glue Bridge piece to the 2 outside, flap pieces.
This picture looks cool! The flash made it look like a rainbow!
I added onto the ‘bridge’ piece, another greeting, you do not have to. You can make the ‘Bridge’ piece your greeting panel and just decorate your panels whatever way you want to decorate! The sky is the limit here!
I will be showing you more ‘Bridge’ Cards in the following days. I had more of the DSP from the magazine to use up…too pretty not to! They will be a bit more Spring/Summer looking! They are mostly floral!
Until the next Post…Blessings and Bridge Building to you ALL!
