This week Jane has given us a lovely sketch to work with on CAS Colours and Sketches. My card has also been influenced by the themes from a couple of other challenges and so I thought I would make a patriotic card for all my blogging friends from across the Atlantic and a graduation card for my friend Rachel at the same time!
I haven't done any paper folding in a while so the focus of my design is a five pointed origami star made from a piece of blue starry paper. A video showing how to fold this star can be found on YouTube HERE. These make wonderful hanging decorations and I have made them previously in all different sizes. This one was made from a pentagon in a 6cm square (Edit: 12cm square). I cut some stripes from some matching paper and two smaller stars from a piece of red starry paper and stuck them to the card blank. The sentiment is computer-generated and finally the origami star was placed between the other two.
The other challenges I would like to enter are:
Less Is More Week #231: Colour theme 'Red, White & Blue'
And Addicted to CAS Challenge #67: Code Word 'Patriotic'
Origami Star Instructions: http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/5-pointed-origami-star.html
Sentiment font: Grilled Cheese
Snippets: Striped and starry papers
It's so busy at the end of the school summer term. Roll on the holidays!
Hope you have lots of fun with Jane's super sketch.
Thanks for visiting!
