To Create a Hinged card is very easy and it will help you to make the larger cards for you to decorate.
You could just simply fold your card in half and use it with the fold at the top but that will restrict you to the size of the card you are using.
And maybe you want to design cards that are larger with no restriction to the size at all.
That way you can add even more embellishments to the front for a spectacular look.
This idea is one way to help you to get that look and the video will take you through the steps you need to take to make them for yourself.
Let this short video entertain you ... so grab a cuppa and a biscuit then settle down to watch while you relax for a while.
Find out how you too can make cards that stand by themselves, and can be as pretty as you can make them and at the size you prefer.
The short video Making Cards My Style explains the reasoning behind this style of card.
This is the card I have made shown from the front and I have also lined the inside of this card to match the front for a finished look.
There are two reason for this ... one is it makes the card a little stronger should you not have a stronger weight card stock.
The other is it hides all the workings of the added hinge and gives a far more professional finish to the design.
This is so important if you are wanting to sell your cards and you want to give people the best quality that you possibly can.
Even shaped cards can be made to create a hinged card which means they will stand alone.
I have used the
Card Making Magic
dies on this card to give me the layered look.
And the video will show you another way to create the hinge for your cards.
Yes I know it takes more card, but the finish will be so worth it, when people come back to you for some more of the wonderful cards that you create.
I have used the
Snowdrop Channel Die Set
with it's matching stamp for this card and I have added the verse from the stamp set to the inside.
So I hope you will like this easy idea and try it when you next make some cards.
