Patterned Paper

Patterned Paper Card: 3 Panels, Wider Border


Back again with another design to help you transform those patterned paper piles into pretty cards all set to mail to someone you care about.  This one also is a 3 panels design - but this time with a wider border. 




Need some measurement hints for this one?  The card base is an A5 folded in half - so 10.5 x 14.8 is the folded size. 

The cardstock matting layer is 8.5 x 12.8cm.   The panels of DSP are 2.5 x 12.3cm   (or 1" x 12.3cm if you don't mind a mix of inches and cm.  I tend to flick between both.)  

Tip:  Glue the outside two panels on first then you can even things up with the middle one.  Liquid glue is very handy as you get that little bit of wiggle time if your initial aim is as crooked as mine!   

The featured DSP in these cards is the brand new Ornate Garden patterned paper.  The greeting is from Accented Blooms - love that Hello stamp and the coordinating punch. 


I hope you're keeping well.

We've finished our first week (well - half week) of learning from home with my two.  So far so good here. The school have done a great job of planning for this over the last few weeks.   Jack (Yr 9) is really enjoying this style of doing things.  He can zip through at his own pace and intersperse his music, games and what not in between activities.   Hannah (Yr 12) is missing her friends and that daily interaction over recess and lunch.  I feel sad for her and the other year 12s that have that regular final year stress with all these other complications.   The teachers are working really hard to make the best of this situation.  I'm grateful my kids are older and at a more independent stage.  Sending a virtual hug to anyone finding it tough this week.  

Nice to be Friday and a restful weekend ahead for all.  Hope things are going smoothly at your place.  The days blend in a bit with each other don't they! 

Take care and hope some creative time is helping the mood this weekend.

If you're looking for something to do, did you know that each weekend on YouTube a different musical is released for 48 hours only - find them at The Shows Must Go On.  This weekend it is one of my favourites - Phantom Of The Opera. 

I can't wait.  Here's the link to the channel.  So far they've had Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, and Jesus Christ Superstar.  Have you got any favourites you're hoping will be on the list.  A good friend sent me a novel about the life of Eric from the Phantom.  I just finished reading it so this is perfect timing.  

Love Sue xx
