For My Grandsons

December 15, 2017

Have you seen all the wonderful bridge cards on demonstrator blogs and on Pinterest?  Aren’t they just adorable?  Such a fun fold.  Well, I decided to make one for each of my Grandsons for Christmas this year.  I created my card bases from Thick Whisper White card and then cut Whisper White pieces to layer onto each of the panels.  The panel pieces were embossed using the Woodlands Embossing Folder.  After they were embossed I used my Crumb Cake stamp pad to rub over the top and accentuate the trees.  Once the panels were attached, I stamped three trees for each card using the image from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and coloured them using the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The images are cut out using the matching Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies.  I attached two of the trees to the middle panel.  The third tree is attached to Window Sheet and a small bridge that fits across the central part of the card.  The sleigh image and the reindeer image from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set are stamped onto Whisper White card and  coloured using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends I marked a spot about 5cm from the bottom of the card and cut between the images using my Stampin’ Trimmer.  I then trimmed around the outline of each of the images and attached the panel across the front of the card, with the outside edges of the image panel and the card base matching.  I stamped Merry Christmas Wishes from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink, attached it to Crumb Cake card and then across the card beneath the stamped images.  I love how gorgeous these cards look and I know my grandsons will love that they fold into the envelope and then pop open when they pull them out.

Have you tried one of these yet?  If not, I recommend that you do.  Right at this minute I can’t find the link to the video that I watched to create this card, but I am sure if you google it, you will find any number of tutorials and videos to help you create one of these card.

Bye for now,
