Today’s #TuesdayTip is late in the day….but that’s because I’ve been to Peterborough and back for a Create & Craft TV “60 minute touchdown”.
It’s been a while since I’ve been scheduled to work with Dean but he never fails to entertain! I thought it would be a good idea to get him crafting with me, making an origami dress and he didn’t let me down! He embraced his inner crafter and even turned his dress into a card.
Without any prep – or even seeing the kit until moments before the show – he made a fab card with the elements available on the show.
So this #TuesdayTip is in his honour. Faced with a dilemma to make a card but with limited craft supplies, he took a 6×6 paper and tore it to give a banner with distressed edges, perfect for fixing directly onto a card blank before topping with his origami dress. He then chose a range of embellishments to finish his card with flair!
You can use this technique on your card to layer papers with a gorgeous effect that gives your card an edge and a different look.
Here’s an 8×8 card I made using this technique on the First Edition Storyteller papers (which incidentally, were also available on the show).
If you didn’t catch the show, but are intrigued to see more – including my card topped with an origami dress – you can watch the show back and pick up your crafty stash at http://www.createandcraft.com/gb/shows/trimcraft-60-minute-touchdown-2656677?channel=CC.
