Day 13

Good afternoon....

Another wonderful day here. I have been thinking, and in an effort to get more traffic, I am offering blog candy. Post a comment to all my July cards, and then at the end of  "Christmas in July" I'll randomly draw a name and send one person their favorite card.

I slept in for some strange reason. Well, I didn't so much sleep as I lacked the energy to get up. I was awake, listening to TSN 1040 sports talk radio.

Went to Crafty Capers for Coffee & a Card. A friend usually goes with me, but she had to work, so she couldn't make it. She had hoped I'd be able to buy her a kit, but there weren't any left. I promised her I'd show her the card & we could make our own version this summer.

That card is very summer, and not at all Christmas-y, so I won't post it today. I'm saving them for August.

Today's card is one of the 2 other cards I made the same day as yesterday's card.

I just gave it a quick water colouring this afternoon and then photographed it. I also had to fix the flaps. Apparently I didn't use very strong adhesive on the larger flap, or the the inside piece, as both came off. I was going to take a picture to show you how it opens, but it's pretty self explanatory. Each of the die cut flaps are tucked under the white lined piece, but they aren't attached to each other at all. You simply lift each one and write your message inside.

The flaps were cut using a Big Shot. I don't remember what die we used. Simply score about a 1/4 inch or so in, so you have a piece to fold under and adhere the flaps to the base.

BTW - in yesterday's post I said I thought the paper was Simple Stories. I'm not so sure of that anymore. It may well be Echo Park.
