Festive Tutorial Thursdays

Make a quick and simple card

Today I am going to show you how to make this quick and simple card.

For this craft you will need:

Ultimate Pro Crafters Companion

Double sided tape
 A5 size Cardstock printed on both sides

On the card side of your board, place your A5 piece of card face-down.

concertina card line

Score along the Concertina A5 Line. Turn your page around (180°) and do the same on the other side.

Using the side of the score stylus, fold the scored lines over neatly.

Ulitmate Pro Crafters Companion

Open the board and on the box folding side, dry emboss the edges of the concertina folds.

Cut around the embossed lines.

Now lay your "Angels and Wings" board on top of the card scoring side of the board.

Angels and Wings Embossing board

Lay a small piece of pearlescent card-stock over the ribbon in the corner (Face down) and emboss it. 

embossing ribbons

Add a small piece of double-sided tape to one side of the ribbon and stick in the appropriate spot on one side of the card, over the opening.

Decorate it outside and in...

And there you have it - a card that takes less than 5 minutes to make :)

And now it is your turn....

Link up your crafts and tutorials below.

I can't wait to see your new crafts that you have been busy with, please link them up below.

Don't forget:

This month the tutorial party has a theme - Festive :)

To be featured at the end of this month you will need to link up all your well-laid out festive tutorials

Your tutorials can be creative, handwork, recipe or any other tutorial that you feel fits the bill. 

So to reiterate, I will be featuring all tutorials that have something to do with the festive season.

(For a tutorial to be featured it needs to be photo-rich and laid out in a step-by-step format)

Of course you can also link up all your other crafts and creations, I love to visit each of your lovely posts, but if you are looking for a feature this month you need to stay in the category :)


If I feature 3 or more of your posts at the end of this month you will receive your own Featured post (Please note: this only applies if you have not had a featured post on Marigolds' Loft already. If you have been featured before, you will still receive a spot on my sidebar as a Tutorial Whiz for the month of December)
