This is the first time I've made a card for someone 100 years young. I first met Kitty over twenty five years ago, when we both supported the same local football team. She really is the most amazing lady and is still a regular at the football stadium, watching our favourite team. Her eyesight is not what is was, so I wanted my card to have lots of textures, with a fancy fold.
Our team plays in blue and white, so the colour scheme was decided for me! I made a Tri-shutter card, which is easier to make than it looks! I used blue and white pearlised papers which I embossed before covering all the panels.
Here are my instructions for cutting and scoring. I hope they make sense.
1. Cut base card 5½" x 12".
2. Score at 2", 4", 8" 10" (only 1½" down at the top and 1½" up from the bottom at the 2" and 10" points).
3. Measure in 1½" on both the long sides and cut from the 2" score line to the 10" score line.
As requested by Di, I'll be sharing this card on Pixie's Snippets Playground
