I love to try new crafty things. Whether it’s following through on an idea that just popped into my head or being inspired by someone else’s creation, stretching myself artistically or experimenting with a new technique, successful or not so much, it’s all good fun 🙂
Nearly all of the cards I make are standard single-fold cards — I normally spend more time thinking about the decoration rather than the structure. Along with the tunnel card I made for my other half recently, I’ve made more shaker cards than I thought I had, one magic slider card and one easel card, and that’s it.
Inspired by Emma’s napkin-fold card, I followed along with the video and made this card. And quickly remembered long-ago experiences with origami where, no matter how carefully I made the folds, nothing ever quite perfectly lined up. Luckily the band around the middle successfully hides the tiny gap 🙂
It’s an interesting card design; I think I’d like to try decorating one with stamping and colouring rather than glueing down so many triangles: I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to making sure corners are stuck down properly and, well, triangles are fiddly!
