Today I will be sharing my project that was featured on theScor-pal blog as part of this
week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or
any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on
over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on
each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline
in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.
I recently saw a
tutorial for a very cool Shaped/ Folded card and have been waiting for just the
right moment to try it out.The tutorial
that I used was from Marianne
Skjelstad’s blog. She didn’t have a name for this fold, but I thought that
a wing-fold shaped card was a good description. The Scor-pal Design Team got to play
with products from Momenta this week – and I used the BFG Pyramid Pad.
First, cut your paper
6” x 11 ¾”. Using your Scor-pal,
score at 3 ¼”, 5”, 6 ¾”, and 8 ½”. Fold
Trace the shape that
you want to use for your wing on the two outer panels of the card, and cut to
shape.For my card, I traced the outside
of my Cheery
Lynn Designs Oval Doily Stacker One die, so that it would be slightly
larger than my die cut.Ink the edges
and add decorative die cuts, and patterned paper panels.
I used a smaller die
from the same set for my front panel and decorated it with matching stickers
from Momenta. This is the card folded into closed position.
