Crafty Cardmakers 245 'Thankful'

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards, as long as it meets the challenge. 

Lin is hosting today and our challenge is 'Thankful'.

Hope you will join in.

And here is my project for the challenge:

I've used two Masterboards today to make this card.

I used various stencils and Distress Oxides to make these.
At least one of the Masterboards needs to be decorated on both the front and the back for this card.

The next stage was to cut two squares the same size and one slightly larger for the mount.
I'm using 6"x 6" card blanks so the square will be about 5 1/2" and the mount 5 3/4"

The topper is folded as you can see here and is the piece which needs to be decorated on both sides.

And the creases used to line up the corners into the centre.

The square will now look like this.

Take the corners and crease the card along the centre folding outwards.

You can see the idea better here.

Do this all the way round and apply a little glue to hold these in place.

You can add the sentiments any way you want but I have cut another square of Masterboard, stamped the sentiment and layered this with more gold card before attaching it to the topper and adding the enamel dots. I have also added a small sentiment on the background too.

 I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Fabulous masterboards as always Angela.
Didn't get a chance to recreate the fabulous background on my birthday card, so I will have to try again later. Probably be the New Year now the way time is flying by.
