Scallop Square #22 – Double Swinging Z-Fold Card for Mothers Day

And here is the card that proved the most popular at the Team Training event last month.

I don’t think the photos do it justice but I know those of you at the Team Training will remember!!

A lot of people thought that this looked intricate and complicated – but actually it isn’t really…. though there are steps that HAVE to be done in a certain order or it doesn’t work….. ( and yes I learnt the hard way….)

Quite a few photos from different angles here to hopefully portray the card as effectively as possible…..



2012_03_Scallop Square1 08_resizeAnd I can’t wait to make a Christmas version sometime soon. I am just waiting ( patiently!!!) to be able to order a few new papers and stamp sets. Not long now for me and my fellow demos……. And only 3 weeks (1st September) for everyone else…… with the launch of our first-time-ever Autumn/ Winter catty here in Europe…… Yay!!!

I started to do a step by step – but there are a few strategic photos that would be best taken and my camera battery has just died….. and DH is complaining about how long I have been on the PC today…….oops – he is right……. So sorry… that will have to be for another day……
