This week we are talking mechanics... nahh, not the greasy fingers kinda mechanic... having said that, it will still be inky fingers for some of us I think ;)
What do we mean by "card mechanics"? Well, you know, those cards with that special extra touch... those that roll out, that folds, that pop up... you know the kind.
Our DT has worked hard again to bring you AMAZING projects! Most of them with step by step pictures so you can make them too...
Starting this week is Neil, with a fishy card... with a lovely sense of humour. Love this!!
Hope you like it too !!
Stamp the man, mask and add the buildings to the front cover, colour with inks and glue the cover to the inside piece. use wire and a twig to create the fishing rod and attach as seen. Add the sentiment in small alphabet stamps.
The pop up bit is the mouth of the fish.
To make the inside score and fold the card in half and open. On the fold line draw a square 3cm diamond shape dissecting the fold. Use a craft knife to cut a line inside left to right and score the other lines to create a mouth that opens and closes as you open the card. Draw a fish shape to fit the mouth onto a piece of card, stamp it with steampunk style stamps and colour with distress inks. Colour the mouth on the card blank in the same colours. Tear strips of white paper onto the card (cutting away from the mouth) and colour with the blue inks before gluing the fish onto it.
