Napkin Card

Hi,hope you had a good weekend,I can never believe just how quickly they fly by! I don't usually work a Monday,so today I have spent the morning in my craft room.
I came across a tutorial at StampARTic for a napkin fold card. Liked the idea so thought I would have a play. Now,generally I like quite instant craft,but this took a little more time just to get the folds the right way(you'll know what I mean if you have a go),and then to cut the triangles as I used my cricut. Maybe sometimes it would be easier to follow all the tutorial and not just the initial folds!! LOL!
Gosh,I have quite a lot of photos to share!

12 x12 paper folded and Martha Stewart around the page punched

George and Basic Shapes for  triangles - cut as squares at 2",2.25" and 4"  and cut in half.
I used cuttlebug and sizzix embossing folders throughout,everything was inked.




For the inside of the card...
Star and shadow from George cut at 4",embossed,sanded,inked,glamour dusted and popped on 3d foam.
Rectangles also from George cut at 1.5" and shadowed at 1.75",stamped with Personal Impressions stamp,inked,embossed,glamour dusted.(the tiny stars) and again on 3d foam.

The wrapper is attached to the back of the card. I love the font  on Life's a Party,slightly retro.Dad cut and shadowed at 1",inked and popped.





Are you still with me? Well done for hanging in there! This is  a card for my Dad for Father's Day. I like how it turned out,it was quite complicated at times but now I have cricut cut sizes I would make another for a special occasion.
I am entering this into..
Fantabulous Cricut - challenge #60 - Try this Angle - use a rectangle and a triangle
Simply Sunday Challenge - Retro Daddy!
The Paper Variety - star studded challenge
I think I'm becoming addicted to challenges! These are great blogs,do go on over and see the great Design Team projects and all the other amazing entries.

Going to rest my fingers after all that blogging! Lol!
Have a fantastic day,Jayne x
