Just like buses


After no posts for weeks, I make 2 in 2 days so, just like buses, there are either none at all or they all come along at once!

This is a card I made simply to illustrate the fold for a group I'm in. The steps look a little wonky in this photo, which they're not, but I obviously didn't arrange the card very well before taking its picture. I think I'll have to secure it with a hidden ribbon before I send it to anyone. I've found that if you attach a fine ribbon underneath the front fold and then attach it under the rear fold, the card stands well on a level surface without gradually sinking into a flat nothing! I actually coloured the image with my Copics ages ago so I can't remember which colours I used but the papers are Blueberry Hill from Papermania and the flowers are from my stash. Unfortunately the colours of the flowers don't seem to be true in the photgraph but I can assure you that all the colours blend well together 'in the flesh'.

I hope you like this one and maybe I'll even have another one to post in the not too distant future! Have a happy Wednesday!
