Good Morning Friends,
Today, I am excited to share with you 2 different card styles, both new to me but both styles have been around for some time. I’m just a bit late to the party!
This first card style is not new but is enjoying a rebirth of sorts. I remember, as a child, seeing this size card especially for holiday cards. And, like all things, this older style is new again. It’s what is now being called a LONG & SKINNY card measuring in at 9″ x 3.5″. As a card maker, it’s an entirely new game now. Since all my supplies are geared to the normal A2 size, it’s been a challenge to reinvent the wheel. I am even seeing manufacturers of card making supplies introducing products fitting this longer, narrower size but I managed to reinvent my stash supplies to work perfectly.
Here is the first of my cards featuring the LONG & SKINNY style.
And let’s flip it to be a TALL & SKINNY card.
So what do you think? I think that this style card is becoming very popular with card makers and will be well-received by everyone. The challenge is on!!!
This next card was an entirely new experience for me. I don’t usually make such involved cards but needed a very special card for a friend and this fit the bill. I watched the video numerous times and following along, was able to create this card without too much difficulty, just time consuming. But the result is spectacular in real life. I used a holographic mirror card which makes taking a decent picture almost impossible but you can surely see the beauty of this card. A very shinny showstopper, for sure! This style card is called a CONCERTINA GATEFOLD. Here is the link to Sam’s video if you want to check out her YouTube channel. She does amazing things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Riwi5yiRt4&feature=em-uploademail
And, finally, a card for my granddaughter, Annabelle, who turned a young 17 yesterday. She’s a ballerina so how perfect is this card.
So there you have it, another very busy week for me but oh so rewarding. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and by subscribing to my blog over here: → → → → → → → → → → →
