Card Layout 26

Nice and simple one for this midweek make. Somehow, it has already become one of my firm favourites in this series.

Come and see what you think …

First, here’s the layout and the card that was inspired by it.

Just two panels went to create this card. Seems like more.

Even more chuffed that the card was made using the decorative paper set too – why haven’t I thought of this before?!

Fancy seeing me chop up some paper? Oh, go on.

That’s about it for this one.

  2. Again a gorgeous card John, I love your series so much. Started today with a card with layout 20 as my inspiration. When I have mailed it to the birthday boy I will post it and refer to you and this awesome blog and series.
    I don’t know if you did it on purpose nor I want to be a smartass, but did you know you scored your card on the wrong side? The valley you score is for the mountain fold on the outside. In this case I don’t think it will matter but if you fold heavier and special cardstocks such as pearlescent cardstock in this way, you will get cracks.
    Thank you so much for your inspiration, stay safe and have a wonderful evenening.

    • Interesting to hear your view on the scoring however I always score the valley on the inside as this reduces the bulk on the inside of the card – especially for thicker card – when folded and therefore prevents cracking on the outside.


      • Hi John, years ago I joined in a workshop with Diana Crick (owner/designer of the Scor-pal) at a paper companie. She said it was better to avoid wrinkles and tears, because by making a valley, you give the paper room to bend. The paper companie made pre-folded cards and had also the valley on the outside.
        I just was curious why you did it the other way arround.
        Stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  3. Lovely layout John, so simple but very effective. I’ve already used quite a few of your suggestions to make boxes of cards for a friend who is house bound and relies heavily on carers, so having plenty of assorted cards means she can “shop” at home! Looking forward to the next layout! Xx
