ID: Crown Card - Just 4 You - HB

Created: July 25, 2021
Size: 3.5"w x 7"h

Our challenge for our August 10th meeting is to try the next  structure in the book - Crown Book #15 or Crown Card #16 from Hedi Kyle's "Art Of The Fold" book.

I don't think I've ever made this structure, but I really like it... this one is another of the crown cards but with a slight variation that I really like... I find the larger flaps to hold the text much more dramatic and the top and bottom edges left unfolded... sorry for the color differences - camera versus scanner

That yellowish color is really a beautiful soft pearlized gold linen textured cardstock.

I used a white Canson Colorline (thin) cardstock. Applied direct to paper Distress Oxide ("Festive Berries") stamp pad, then sponged to blend the ink. When dry stamped the crackle stamp (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Clair "Golden Meadow" and thermal embossed with Ranger's "Queen's Gold" embossing powder.

Turned the excess width to the front and adhered a piece of the pearlized gold cardstock.

Wrote my sentiment using a Zig Writer and colored with a gold gel pen and a red Zig Writer. Adhered to the card front leaving a space in the middle for my belt to slid under.



Wrote my text on the pearlized gold cardstock pouncing Sandarac first so the ink adheres and doesn't bubble. I used a 2.4 Parallel pen for the quote and a 3.0 pen for the sentiment using Sumi ink in an Italic style.
