What another Tutorial !?!

Happy Thursday,

Last Thursday I showed my take on the Sue Wilson Spanish collection background die and a tri fold card I had come up with.  This proved to be a big hit and I was asked for a tutorial. Now I usually do tutorials on techniques, this is the first time I have tried one on a whole card.  I have to admit it was a little difficult as it runs long and due to the restrictions of my camera it had to be shot in five segments however it's done and below.





Usually I make another version of what I am showing however the card needs to be the same to match the original however nothing said I had to make it in the same colours, nor decorate it the same way.  Today's card is the one I made during, and a little after as it takes me more than 15 minutes to finish a card, the shoot.



There are probably too many pictures of this one but I just loved both the colour combination and the different way I decorated this one.  The video is the next picture so, if you have 20 minutes or so to spare, click to watch.




I'm sure you can all come up with different ways to decorate this and even different dies to try, I tried a reverse fold version of this last Thursday click HERE if you missed it. If you do make one please send me a picture as my follower gallery, which I set up to show what cards people had made and sent pictures of to me, is looking a little sparse!


Enjoy...

  3. Morning John, (and film crew) THANK YOU.
    I love this card, but could not puzzle out just how you had done it. Now I must try it. At least once I get this die. I was placing an order for it on Colemans Craft warehouse last night, (3 for 2 offer) with free delivery, until I got to check out, when they tried to charge me £4.99 postage. I live 2 and half hours north of Glasgow, still on mainland, but not according to them. So..back to Joanna Sheen.
    Sorry, rant over, card looks terrific.
    Cheers

  8. Hi John,
    I loved this card when it was first on your blog and I tried several times to work out how you made it it but couldn't. So I was one happy bunny this morning when I saw that you had done a video on the making of it . Thank you so much for using your time to do it for us and making it so easy to follow.

    Love Sheila xx

  11. Wotcha matey,
    Just watched video. Excellent as always. Can I just clarify your measurements on one bit please. You said the two plain pieces you use for the back panel are 23cm by 8.5 but it looks longer than 8.5cm to me, as the two pieces look almost square, unless there is some sort of optical illusion. I'm thinking of doing something similar for Nesta and just wanted my measurements right.
    Thanks chuck.

  15. Hi John, thanks for making the video. Really clear instructions. You've made it so easy. I can cut rectangles and make folds, so there's no reason not to try! You've really opened my eyes to possibilities. Thank you. Best wishes, Anne O

  21. Hi John. I had a go at your cards. My first attempt was to make it smaller so it could fold into an envelope, the red one. I made the backing card smaller. I did not have the spellbinder die you used so compromised with another. I bought the new spellbinder dies that are similar to what you used. The pink is second attempt and the blue one is my favourite so far. I have just added some bling to them but not in the pictures. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1674840842745665&id=100006592966153&comment_id=1674866882743061&notif_t=feed_comment
