It's a Snap!


325 Cards Day 125
'It's a snap' refers to the cards' closure so anything other than the ordinary for this one.
I will also combine this with
Daring Cardmakers - 'Blue & Green....shouldn't be seen', but these are so subtle and lovely.

This got my thinking cap on as I haven't done a card with a different kind of closure for ages.
So I went back through my file and found the template and idea for this one.
It is a sort of gate fold card with the fold to one side instead of in the middle.
The papers used are from Basic Grey 'Lilykate' pad, I also coverd a slide mount with a piece of the stripy paper.
I used my Silent Setter to punch holes on each side through both thicknesses and threaded the ribbon through. A jelly sentiment which reads 'Best Bud' was added to the centre of the slide mount, only one I had so not entirely happy with that, it may come off and something else will be added.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone across the pond A Very Happy 4th of July xxxx...enjoy!!!
