I am not convinced that I like this card at all now that it's finished but I had done the waterfall card tutorial with it so I figured I should use it to show you.
Above are the pictures of the completed card in the different stages of movement, I am not overly pleased with it but hopefully you can see what I was trying to achieve lol.
To make this card, I took some sheets of A4 black card stock, I made an A5 card base with one and cut out the following panels from the rest,
4 small squares cut out using an Xcut die I believe they are about two and a quarter inches squared
A long thin strip one inch by five and three quarters
And Another long thin strip two inches by twelve inches
I then measured and scored the 2x12 piece at one inch, two inches, three inches, four inches and five inches from the left hand side.
Next I went off and decorated my pieces (all excepted for the 2x12) using PanPastels to attempt to create firework effects.
I then folded the 2x12 along the score lines as in the picture above added double sided tape underneath each of the scorelines except for the one 1 inch from the edge (it's important to make sure the tape is under the scoreline and not on it for the mechanism to work).
I then added a piece of double sided tape to the end piece on the back of the card.
Next I took the one inch strip and laid it on on to the base card (with the card lying opened flat) and lined it up so that the top of the strip was at 4 inches up from the bottom of the base card and used my pokey tool to poke holes through both layers at each end.
I then began to add my panels beginning from the bottom one and working my way up (as they overlap one another) once again ensuring that the edge of the panel is underneath the score line.
The only finishing touch I added to this card was a piece of fiery coloured fiber to the end of the pull tab.
I would like to enter this card in the the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog -Challenge 74 - Remember Remember The 5th Of Novemeber
