As promised on Monday, here is my multifold card as per the Penny Black challenge This was a good one actually as it meant that I could create card big enough to hold all the stamps from the Twelve Days of Christmas set!! I was beginning to wonder whether I would ever be able to get them all on one card.
I should be totally up front and admit that I cheated a bit because I ran out of time and didn't think that I had any card big enough, so I simply stuck together two of my larger pre-scored card blanks!!
Then I got into difficulties because I put some of my punched out images onto another piece of card and then stamped that with the phrases, only to find that the four squares just wouldn't go onto one page very neatly! Of course, I had to unpeel the punched images from the backing card and try again!! (I also need to practice my stamping a bit more as I seem to be rather heavy handed on the right hand side!!)
I love the way the front of the card looks more classy and elegant than the inside does with all the funky stamps - a deceptively funny card!! In any case, my parents loved it and it has pride of place on the mantlepiece!!
I have just realised that none of the above images actually shows that it really is a multifold card, so here is another one!!
(I feel that I should point out that the grapes aren't actually on fire! The candle is in fireplace behind the table!! ha ha!!)
