June Class Projects

Finally getting around to posting the projects from this month's Stamping Escape class.  All the cards showcased a fancy fold technique.  All cards used the stamp set, Work of Art and the new Photopolymer stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes.

This first card is much like the card I posted from my June stamp club projects.  The size of the flag image is the same as that card, but with a Real Red layer behind instead of the Night of Navy layer.  You will find the template showing the measurements of where to score and where to cut.  I simply took the focal image (flag here) and adjusted other templates that I've seen to make it work.  This card fits nicely into a 3-5/8"x6-1/2" envelope.  Finished size of the card is 3-1/2"x6".

This card uses the easel fold.  Start with a piece of card stock measuring 11"x4-1/4".  Score it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".  I used a textured piece of card stock to act as the stop instead of a button or other more bulky accessory.  Those items work great if you are hand-delivering your card.  Not so much if you are wanting to mail the card.

This last card, I call a Z-fold card.  It's like a card within a card, really.  The ourter card is made from a piece of card stock measuring 8-1/4"x4-1/4", scored at 2-3/4".  The smaller card is made using a piece of card stock measuring 8"x3", folded in half at 4".

I love giving what look like complicated cards.  Especially when they are really easy to make!

Thanks again for stopping by!
