#90 Butterflies + H is for Handwritten and/or the colour Lemon. So a handwritten sentiment is the requirement this time. No sticker, no stamp, no die cut just the words hand written by yourself.
Here is my inspiration for you.
I decided to make a Dutch fold card. I have made these in the past but could I find the instructions I use? Nope. Never mind I knew a site that would have the instructions. I should have stopped right there and then. Do you ever start a card and then everything goes wrong but you keep on going because to start afresh isn't an option either with the supplies your using or timewise? Yes? So you will feel my pain!!
Looking at the instructions for cutting the two pieces of card required had me thinking these measurements are wrong surely( but you keep going because that's what they say.) Sure enough having cut the card they are wrong even after having gone back and checked I haven't made a mistake. Nada.
Ok time for a rain check and go look on You Tube. The first one I came across was by Dawn Griffith from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts (20th Oct 2016) for making a Dutch Fold Christmas Card. Now not only is it cut from one piece of card but the fold is turned sideways. I like this idea so off I go.
Out with a fresh piece of card and cut the card to the correct size. No problem. Then I did a silly thing and cut the wrong pieces off the card to discard. (I was trying to watch the video and do it at the same time. (should know better.) Not wasting more card so I turned the card upside down and refolded which then left me with a crease I didn't want,so my bright idea was to use the design paper to cover the crease. Worked fine but then I need to cover the back of the card to hide the crease as well and I only have the one sheet of the paper I'm using. A lot of cutting and pasting later and the card was finally done.
Here is the card folded up and as you can see a side ways version.
