Good morning and welcome to all the Tuesday Tagger blog hoppers!
I mentioned in yesterday's post about the prizes we are sponsoring, so scroll down if you missed that info yesterday. Basically Tracey, Debbie and I are each sponsoring one of Tracey's recent unmounted stamp sheets each. My sheet is the Classical Instruments from which the above card has been made. I'll give more details about it after the blog hop info.
If you would like to join in the Blog Hop, then you will need to go to the Tuesday Taggers Blog which is your starting point. You will find the instructions there.
For those that have already started, well done on getting this far. I'm going to hop along too just for the fun of it and I'm sure I will be tagging along at the end as I'm sure to get sidetracked reading everyone's blogs along the way!
Just to check you are hopping in the right direction, you should have arrived here from Avril's Blog, if you have missed any of the hops you may want to go back to the beginning and check through from the Tuesday Taggers blog which is the starting point.
The letter you need from me is an O! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize!
Your next visit should now be to Janet's Blog.
Thank you for joining in and I hope you have enjoyed your journey so far!
* * * * * *OK, back to the card...
The next couple of pictures shown the fold for the easel card, it is so simple to do. You can use any shape or size card, I've used a 4" square card (that was already folded in half). Now fold the front of the card in half so that the mountain fold is at the front.
This is how the fold should be made.
You will need to cut a separate piece of card that is the same size as the folded card, I used a 4" square piece cut from a sheet of Starburst Stain/cling film technique.
Here's the same technique but in a different colour. Both are from the French Country set. Amaryllis Burgundy and Jack in the Pulpit Teal.
You can decorate as much of the card as you like, I did the back top panel and half of the bottom base with the same stain card but left the inside triangle part blank.
I embossed the trumpet and all the wording with gold embossing powder. I then layered them onto gold mirri card.
I added double-sided tape to the back of mirri card then cut thin strips for borders (they aren't peel offs), so it would all match, I also added gold brads. Here is a side view of the finished card.
I used wording on the bottom piece, lifted with foam pads, to hold the front panel in place.
To close the card to put in an envelope, lift the front panel and it will lay down to form the original 4" square card.
Thanks for visiting,
