For my birthday I received an amazing card from my lovely friends on our craft forum Ukandocrafts
It had been made by our resident birthday card moderator Pam and I have to say I was bowled over by it.
So naturally I needed to know more – I opened and closed it – looked through it top to bottom – side to side – but couldnt work it out
So I emailed Pam to thank her and asked how she made it...it was a kit
Turns out there are 13 in the series – guess what? I now have them all..
They are from www.craftsuprint.com and the kits were designed by Sue Douglas
So I have now made one up myself so you can all see just how fab they are
This card is called 3d Room With A View PAMPER YOURSELF
I printed off the 7 pages of instructions and 6 pages to form the kit
Having read the instructions thoroughly and then checked out all the pieces on the sheets I felt ready to go
The instructions say that just the 4 supports need to be strengthened so have to be stuck to card stock then cut out
I must add there is an awful lot of cutting out but putting together is so easy – you use a wet glue which I find unusual as most card making is done with double sided tape or a tape runner
As I never have the best results with PVA and plain paper I used photo glue – and that was when I fully understood why they stress wet glue – the inner panels take a fair bit to get perfectly lined up and double sided tape doesn't allow that
I haven't added any glitter or further embellishment as yet but I think I will when I decided what – if anything I plan to do with it...
Oh and another winner factor with this kit – it is flat when finished and it fits nicely into an 8x8 envelope
I have printed off 8 or 9 sets so the ladies at class can have a go at making them...
