Rolled Frame Birthday Card
I have been very busy (since April) planning and preparing for an 8-week card making class I just started teaching through the Haddonfield Adult School, and as a result, I have gotten VERY behind in posting projects here on my site. Now that all the projects/lessons are complete and the class is underway, I can get back to just “playing” and posting!
The rolled frame on the card project above is a technique I previously shared HERE. It’s a nice way to show off two-sided patterned paper and to draw attention to a die cut, focal image, object, etc. My tutorial for creating the rolled frame can be found HERE.
This 5″ x 7″ card is a project we completed in one of the classes. After learning to use the paper trimmer and score board for making basic cuts and folds, the students created this card where the trimmer was used to create diagonal cuts and the score board was used to create score lines that did not extend to the ends of the panel. Die cutting was also introduced.
As you may know, I love browns and earth tones for my cards, but I know others may prefer colors (lol!), so I offered this second sample to my students as well.
And here is a final variation using silk flowers in the frame instead of a die cut.
This frame adds a lot of “thickness” to this card and requires a trip to the post office if mailing. I used a bubble mailer to send mine. You could also create a “box envelope” with the We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board if desired.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
