Extended Folded Frame Card

As a follow on to the last post, explaining how to make the folded frame – here is the original card, that prompted me to detail the instructions.

As a theme, I have tried to picture the seasons, using Tim Holtz distress inks and images from Clarity Stamps. The paper is from Tim Holtz Idealogy range, Vintage Shabby (again, can you tell I’m a fan ), and was perfect for this project.
 Because these paper stashes have been put together to incorporate all the paper popular paper sizes used in paper craft – the co-ordinating patterns where available in the sizes I needed. 12×2″ for folding, 6×6″ for the insert and hinge, and the ATC sice (3.5×2.5″) to create the seasonal topper.

Here is how the card came together as whole, from the beginning

Basics put togther first, and then inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink, to unite all pages.

Toppers where created using various distress inks and Clarity Stamps

These were the basic components for each seasonal theme, before being assembled on the page.
Hope you like it, and fancy having a go yourself. It really is quite straightforward once you get going.
