Zigzag card



Hi everyone,

I'm back with a new card fold that is really easy but effective. I've called it my zigzag card. Here it is decorated with the gorgeous new Sara's Signature Vintage Diary papers from Crafters Companion and it's another of my Design Team samples that I made for the launch of this Collection. 



I've added the ink pot die, cut in black card with added gilding wax.  The quill pen has been lightly inked and the edges of the papers have been blended to match the amount of distressing on the two different sized papers chosen.  The frame has been cut from 12 x 12 papers with the central design from the smaller paper pad.

On the centre panel is also a wooden corner embellishment from the collection and I've stamped one of the sentiments using the Adorning Sentiments.



Materials I used:

Crafters Companion 300gsm stamping card
Crafters Companion Black card
Crafters Companion textured card
Sara's Signature Vintage Diary 6 x 6 papers
Sara's Signature Vintage Diary 12 x 12 papers
SSVD Adorning Sentiments Photopolymer stamps
SSVD Feathered Quill dies
SSVD Wooden Frame and Corners
Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Ink - pink tulip
Collall all purpose glue


I was inspired to make this card and template after seeing an image by Ewa S. whom I have been unable to contact.

  3. Managed to get one card finished. I made a couple of errors, with the 2nd one, but I have made a template for future reference. However, the diagrams and instructions were very clear and easy to follow so I hope to complete the second one tomorrow.
