Thank you for joining us for our weekly Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features cards that are yellow.
Yellow reminds of the sun shining. Which gave me the inspiration for this card today –
A Bridge Fold using the new Online Exclusive, One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper. The prints are soo pretty!
I used all but a little 1/2″ x 1/2″ square of paper creating this.
The basic measurements for my Bridge Fold begin with a card base of 5 1/2″ x 8″, remember to remove the 1/2″. Score the base at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 6 3/4″. My strip across is 5 1/2″ x 3/4″.
I did not want any of the beautiful paper going to waste! I started by cutting 1/2″ off the bottom. My strips of pattern paper cut in order from left or right are : 1″, 5/8″, 2 3/4″, 5/8″, 1″. Keep them in scene order when adhering to the card base.
The sentiment was stamped in Boho Blue ink on Lemon Lolly. The 2″ Circle Punch includes the whole sentiment nicely!
What is wonderful about this sized Bridge Card is that is does fit into a standard envelope!
Such a beautiful, simple, sweet card. What do you think?
We will see you next week with more great inspirations in card making!
