Sprinkles of Life Card Class

Just a quick post to show you another of the cards we made at the class on the weekend. We played with some shaving cream marbling - a fun technique I haven't really used much. It made some gorgeous background papers for the frosting on the cupcakes.

I am surprised at how much I am able to do with this set as I play with it more - in fact I only realised the other day that it has a flower shape incorporated in the punch!

The simple fold card is an adaptation of Julie Davison's design which has been around for ages. I modified the measurements for Australia to be 10.5 wide  - so you get 2 cards from one A4 piece of cardstock. (Australian width is only 81/4 not 81/2).

I don't trim the length until after I have scored and folded - and then only shave  off enough from the large flap for it to fold flat. I score at 7.4cm and 18.5 cm ( there are some odd measurements on the metric scoring plate but they are useful).

The panels for both the front and inside flaps are then 10cm wide x 10.5 long.
The rest is made the same as Julie's card.
