The Gangs All Meer - Bridge Fold Card - Video Tutorial

I have a Fancy Fold card to share with you today. It's a Bridge Fold card and you can find the Video Tutorial for it below :o)

The Gangs All Meer is one of the FREE stamp sets available with a qualifying purchase during our current Sale-a-Bration Promotion. Tomorrow is the final day for this promotion. You can find full details about it under the Promotion tab at the top of this Blog.

It's been a while since I created a Bridge Fold card but I thought this stamp set would make a perfect one :o)

I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. 

I masked off the images and blended some ink onto the background to create the sky and sandy ground. 

The Birds come from the Beautiful Moments stamp set.

The card folds flat just by pressing it to either side and will fit into an envelope for a 6" square card - although the card is actually a little smaller than that.

If you are an A4 user you could easily adapt this card to fit into one of our standard (C6) envelopes. You would just need to reduce the height to 11cm.

This isn't so easy to do for 8½” x 11” users because your standard envelopes are so small. Instead of using ½ a sheet of your normal cardstock, you would need to start with a piece of card measuring 8" x 4¼”

This is a top view of the card.

On the back is a panel where you can write your message.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow the imperial measurements (inches).
