Papercraft Inspirations - - CARD FOLDING -

This 3D-ef­fect card fea­tures bunting burst­ing out of the frame, for a lively birth­day cel­e­bra­tion

1 Cover a 13.5x11cm top-fold card blank with pat­terned paper us­ing dou­ble-sided tape or glue. Slightly over­lap the top fold with the paper for a neat fin­ish.

2 Cut 13.5x10cm of con­trast­ing pat­terned paper. Cut a cen­tral aper­ture mea­sur­ing 10x7cm us­ing a metal ruler and a craft knife, to make a rec­tan­gu­lar frame. 3 Use a bor­der die to cut a scal­loped bor­der along one of the 10cm edges. At­tach the frame to the base card with the scal­lop at the bot­tom, us­ing sticky foam pads.

4 Die cut two ban­ners us­ing pat­terned paper, back the heart aper­tures with pink paper then back with ban­ners die cut in black card. Layer slightly askew so the black is vis­i­ble, as shown. Stick to the base card us­ing sticky foam pads.

5 Add a sen­ti­ment and fin­ish with a few gems scat­tered in­side the frame.
