Anyhow, I waffle and need to get to the post in hand. On the smaller memory card were my photos of this sample I made for the recent NEW Tonic Studios Marmalade's World stamp and dies launch and as you can see, I did throw a lot at the card ...
I've seen several of these card designs and thought I'd give it a go myself. Loved it. What a great way to make everything look 3D and still the card folds down flat ... bonus or what? Sorry don't know the name of the fold but if any of you do, please do let me know.
I covered the back panels with papers from "Rose Garden" by First Edition, inking all the edges. Next using the Mr & Mrs strip die, I created a panel and placed this on the largest of the back panels.
I paper pieced Marmalade using papers from the same pack and inked all the edges. I have layered Marmalade up to give further dimension. Have to say I do adore a bit of paper piecing as it's a great way to use up all those paper bits that are just too big to throw away ... !
On the "Z fold" part, I have added half a King Cross suitcase and to hide the hollow inside, I have created a postcard. The diamond shapes are the waste from making the suitcase.
On the smaller back panels, I have cut away the "Mr and Mrs" sentiment and stuck it on top of the designer papers, (which you can just about see if you get up really close to your screen ... lol).
Now after finding all those photos, begins the mammoth task of blogging them, so best get on.
