Technique Tuesday: Landscape Corner Fold Card

Oops, I am sorry I omitted to upload this on the first Tuesday. I don’t know where the week went.

Last month, I showed you a Landscape Corner Fold Card. They are not very difficult to make once you see these simple instructions.

Today’s photo is a monochromatic Christmas card using Every Blessing. It has lots of silver sparkle with Silver Cording Trim, Silver Metallic Thread and Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details – a pity it is so hard to photograph.

  11. Add Dazzling Details to butterfly and a few parts of the flower for added sparkle.
