Spring swing- Lili of the valley (Photo wallet / gift wallet)

Hello again, Sorry I didn't get this post up at the weekend as I had intended. But its better late than never.
So now for something a little different to my usual posts.
This is something to for you to make your self's
this is what we are making.

Its a either a little photo  wallet or its just the right size to add the gift cards (credit card size)
So lets get started.

You will need a sheet of 12x12 paper cut down to 10½ inches by 10½ . I chose one that had a design on both sides as when its all folded you will see both sides of the paper.
Then I folded this down the middle
(image above)
After you have folded this down the middle then open it out and take each side and fold again towards the centre fold
 leave 1 to 2 mm off the centre line. for both side flap folds.
(See picture below)
Now open your paper out and it should look like this.

Right next we need to add some more folds
So all I have done here is taken each corner and folded it over till it meets the line we folded before.
If your paper looks like this we are doing well.
next bit
All I have done now is left corners we have just folded, and folded the two side in to the centre fold.
Now what you need to do is flip it over
as we are going to make some folds on this side now.
So now we want to fold the top section down
(see picture below)
How far down do you fold it I hear you shout.
Just till you see the start of the straight middle fold we have.
(See below image)
Now for the more difficult bit.
So  your top section is folded like above image right.
Now you want to bring up the bottom section up
and tuck the top section in to the bottom section
It will slide in  make sure you push it all the way in till it wont go any further.
don't crease it till its fully tucked in.
Once that its pushed in fully you can press it down flat to create your crease
So this is what you should end up with.... if it don't look like this oppps
you have gone wrong somewhere.
So now you have your little photo gift wallet. It has room for a few photos and sentiments cards
Right now its ready to add your touches
So I added cards to fit in each side of the pockets
You could add sentiments to these cards or use them as photo mats.
For the front I added a stamp from Lili of the valley- Spring Swing  added some seam binding ribbon to make a closure for the little wallet
I coloured the stamped image with my usual
Copic markers and Polychromos Artists Pencils
Rabbit: W0, W1, W3,W5 Pencils used warm grey III 272
Warm Grey IV 272, Cold grey III 232
inside his ear and nose R000
bunny tail C0
ribbon on swing : B000, B00
Oak leaves: G99,G94,G85.
Swing seat and branch: pencils Bistre 179, walnut brown 177

So that's it for today's post ... phewww that was a long one with picture overload.
hope you liked today's post.

Riding my bike -Lilli of the valley stamp (Father's day pop up card)

Morning, Well that nice weather was short lived. Back to cold cloudy and wet ... (sigh) I love the sun makes me feel happy and alive. (pulls on a another jumper)
Right  now for this weeks card.
Its Fathers day coming up 17th June 2012. So I made my Dad a card. Little early i know as fathers day always falls on the 3rd Sunday in the month of June. But by me doing it early it give you all time to gather some inspiration  and idea's for your fathers day cards.
So I made a pop-u free standing card. I like to try different styles of cards.
Here is the link for a tutorial on how to make your own free standing pop-up.
As you can see from this photo. When closed the card is flat for mailing
So for my card I used this cute image from lili of the valley its called
Riding my bike. This was stamped with memento ink then coloured with copic markers and I used a few of my polychromo pencils to add highlights and shading.
I distressed the outer edges of the image with distress ink - vintage photo. I also used this to do the sentiments. The round one is also from lilli of the valley. The ticket one is from Kanban crafts.
Its a great set as you get 6 different plain ticket stamps and then you get 12 different sentiment words you can ass to make your own ticket . You also get 4 little images to add to your ticket if you want.
Images : a row of 5 stars, heart and crown and larger single star.
I embellished the base of the card with ribbon, buttons threaded on some  thick cotton, and some die cut banners.
I also added a pocket watch stamp with distress ink. The stamp  was free on craft stamper magazine
a while back.
