You would NOT believe how much paper I wasted to get to this card for the EONAC fold challenge. I think I made five (or perhaps six?) before getting something I actually liked. Frankly, I'm in serious need of a break from pink. Three of the failures were pink. Pink, pink, pink. Bleck.
So here's the best I could do. I can live with it--happily--because it is cleaner and simpler than any of my other efforts. And it's not pink.
To make the card, cut a 4" by 11" piece of PTI white cardstock. Then score at 5" and 10". Then cut 5/8" off the end opposite the 1" flap. That way, you can fasten the 1" flap with the brads and still tuck the 4 3/8" stamped flap into it.
If this doesn't make sense, try it with a piece of copy paper. It's way harder to explain than to do.
Now yes, the ugly brad butts are exposed on the back of the matchbook, but a simple strip of cardstock glued over them will hide them nicely.
The gemstone brads are sooooo pretty....and soooo bulky. So this will go to a neighbor as a hand-delivered card. She's very girly and will love this blingy floral creation!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and had a chance to make beautiful things. What a blessing it is to have time to create! If you haven't checked out last week's post on Questioning my Intelligence called Creator's High, please do so. And please take time to read the comments because they are better than my essay!
