Folded Wedding Card Tutorial ~ SBC DT

Hello Friends,

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club and today for Friday's Cards I would like to feature a pre-packed folded Card which I purchased and how I have created my project with it.

Tip of the Day: Use Tabs with stand up folded Cards to keep them upright and firm.

Now onto my project:-

My completed Project :-

  • This folded card I have created from a packet of pre-packed folded cards I purchased 
 * * * * * * * * * *
  • This is the original pre-packed Card that I have taken out of the packet for my project ~ It has two folds with 3 small windows as you can see in the two photographs hereunder :-

  • In this next step with the front fold I score it in half with my Scor-Pal and fold

  • Although the pre-packed card already has some fine embossing ~ I still like to go over this with one of my Embossing Folders and I do this in sections as the Card is too large to fit into the Embossing Folder in one go so I generally run it through my Embosser about 3 or 4 times just moving the Embossing folder in sections
  •  I have decided to glue some fine white wedding veil netting behind my little windows but I do not want the 3 windows so I am going to de-face this card by cutting out the two window bars and making it look like one long wide window

  • As I find with my Embellishments being extremely heavy for this pre-packed card to hold and stand upright firmly, I have had to stabilize the card with some Tabs for support as you can see in the next photo ~ I have cut these Tabs and adhered them with double sided adhesive Tape ~ this way my card will not collapse once I have decorated it  ~ Note I have also placed center folds in my Tabs ~  this enables the card to fold down properly but still gives the card proper support when standing upright fully embellished

  • Now my card is ready for decorating and this is my finished product :
