MMM - Mid-week Motivation - A Girl's Best Friend

Our challenge this week is Flourishes and Diamonds - after all they are a girl's best friend. Well my card for you today encompasses more than just diamonds 'cos as we all know diamonds are very difficult to come by (thank goodness for QVC!!) and I have included such delights as shopping, handbags, shoes, cocktails and cake.
Also fresh from a craft class I attended last night I decided to make a Neverending Card - take a look

This is the front of the card with the cocktails and a few hearts and flourishes. There is a centre opening and the sides fold out and round to show the next part of the card

Now we come to the cake and a glimpse of some shoes. By the way all my stamps come from various sets from Studio G - they are very tiny sets that I got from my local craft shop for around 99p. This time the card opens horizontally - up, over and down.......

...... revealing the handbags to match the shoes. The card alternates vertical openings followed by horizontal openings and this time we open vertically to reveal the back of the card and a picture of we girls do best!

Finally the card opens back out to the front of card ready to start again.
Last night at the craft club we had templates to work from and I believe that Papermania make kits with pre-scored pieces of card stock for you to make this style of card, however I have found a video tutorial on Youtube here if you would like to have a go at making one yourself - enjoy!

  1. These never ending cards are clever - anything is a girl's best friend especially if someone else is buying!!
