Card for a Baby Girl

Hi all well a few days ago I shared with you a cot that I had made for one of my daughters friends who is having a baby, so today I thought I would also share with you the card that I made to go with it. For this I used the amazing SVG file that Nandia Fytraki shared with us in the 2nd edition of the Crafters Companion magazine Crafters Inspiration and as always her SVG files cut amazingly on the Ecraft machine. To make this make the cot I  used backing papers from Beatrix Potter CD Rom Miss Tiggy Winkle and they are adorable.

Tutorial for Double Tri Fold card using Faerie Poppets

Morning all well its not long now until the launch of the new range from Crafters Companion of Faerie Poppets and Angels Whispers and as promised here is the project for the Double Tri Fold card. I hope that you enjoy making it as much as I did.


Here are the things you will need:
2  sheets A3 Centura Pearl card stock
2 sheets Centura Pearl A4 card stock
3/4 sheets of Mirri Card
7 sheets of printable backing  paper for backing paper plus
sheets needed for decorating your card
Craft Knife and ruler
Scoring Tool
Bone Folder
Take a piece of your A3 cardstock and cut a piece of card 12 “ x 8”. Using your Ultimate Pro and Boxer Board and with the longest edges of your card top and bottom score a line at 2” and 4” , then turn your card around and do the same again.
Now mark 2” in on the first panel and last panel on both edges. Then using your craft knife and ruler and with the shortest edges of your card top and bottom cut between these two lines.
Now using your bone folder score all your score lines and your piece of card should now look like this.

Now from your Fairie Poppets CD Rom print off 4 sheets of backing paper and then other 3 sheets of matching backing paper using your printable paper. Now mat and layer your Mirri card and backing papers onto all the panels but leaving the left hand panel on one piece and the right hand panel on the other piece blank.
Now taking your 2 pieces of A4 Centura Peal card cut two pieces 8” x 6” and using your Ultimate Pro and Boxer Board have the shortest edges top and bottom and score end piece at 2”. These will become the front of your card.
Leaving the end 2” panels blank decorate the largest panels.
To join both of your cards together, butt together the two blank panel and place some double sided tape across the two edges.
Now cut a piece of Mirri card to fit and then add your insert with a verse, the DL insert fits in perfectly.
The panels that you decorated in step 6 can now be attached to the rest of your card. Please glue onto the undecorated panel and place underneath the undecorated panel on your large card . It should now look like this. Repeat the process on the other side.
On the left hand outside panel of your card front place a piece of Double Sided tape in the middle and attach a piece of ribbon. Make sure that the ribbon in long enough to go around the back of the card and tie in a bow.
Now decorate your two front panels. I have used some decoupage and have printed one as normal then gone into my printer setting and printed one as a mirror image this then has the characters facing each other but this is just personal choice.
