Garden Visitors : Never Ending Card

Garden Visitors : Never Ending Card

I have made this never ending card using the new ‘Garden Visitors’ cd-rom by Creative Crafting World.

The images are by Pollyanna Pickering.

Creative Crafting World and Pollyanna’s daughter Anna-Louise, will still be bringing Pollyanna’s wonderful images to crafters as this was Pollyanna’s wish.

To read about Pollyanna Pickering and the wonderful work she did you can visit ‘Pollyanna Pickering, Painter of the Living World’ here on Pollyanna’s website 

If you have ever looked at a never ending card and though that looks too hard, have a look at my instructions.

 

I have added pictures as well as measurements and kept the instructions as basic as possible.

To make this card you will need :

A4 Black Card
Silver Mirri Card
A4 White Card
Garden Visitors Cd-Rom
Double Sided Tape
Wet Glue

Instructions:

Using the black card cut four pieces measuring 3″ by 6″.  (The instruction pictures are using kraft card just so the adhesive shows up clearly)

Next score each of the four pieces at 1.5″ on each end.
Score and fold 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.

Here are the matts and layers that have been used on this card. I have added a picture of the card section that each matt and layer covers.
