Technique: Make a wrapped card
This weeks assignment for Hobby Alternatief was to make a wrapped card, at the time I made the card I though that I didn’t have the dies to make these so I improvised.
I had to do some calculations to get my card with the correct measurements.
But I did it. 🙂
I just used a doily die and I cut it in half to make the wraps that would go around the card itself. I glued them both on the sides of a piece of linnen paper. To hide the “seams” I glued some white ribbon over them.
When you open this wrapped card you see a new layer of white paper with an other layer of the linnen card stock. I used a die from AliExpress, Happy Birthday” and made a cut from white metallic linnen cardstock and glued it on top of the inside layers.
I glued some of the same white ribbon on the back of the wrapped card and to hide it I glued a layer to the back as wel.
To finish of my card I added a few pearls that I also got from AliExpress.
You can read this post in dutch to at my HA Blog, I have written more details in there when you want to know the measurements.
