A Bouquet Of Sunshine – Never Ending Card

Today’s handmade card has been created using a Paper Boutique paper collection from Creative Crafting World called A Bouquet Of Sunshine.

Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

You will need :

2 x A4 White Card
The Paper Boutique A Bouquet Of Sunshine – Coloured Card Collection
The Paper Boutique A Bouquet Of Sunshine – Paper Kit
The Paper Boutique A Bouquet Of Sunshine – Embellishment Pad
White Card
Glue / Double Sided Tape

Instructions:

Choose four coloured cards, three papers and four square toppers from the paper kit and two square toppers and eight small square toppers from the embellishment pad.

Card Base:

The instruction pictured are using kraft card just so the adhesive shows up clearly

Using the A4 white card cut two pieces measuring 20 cms by 20 cms. 
Then cut each piece in half, making four pieces measuring 20 cms by 10 cms.

Next score each end of the four pieces at 5 cms.
Score and fold each side forward and backwards to ensure the movement of the card.

Lay two of the card pieces horizontal as in the below picture.

Next put a small amount of glue on each of the corners. No more than covering about a 2 cm square.

Then lay the last two card pieces vertical over the other two pieces and allow to dry.

Now you have made the never ending card it’s time to decorate.

Layer one:
Cut four pieces from the first coloured card measuring 4.5 cms by 9.5 cms.
Cut four pieces from the first paper measuring 4 cms by 9 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the card base on the top and bottom.
