Starfold Card

Today's a cool day, so back to the track pants and long sleeve shirts.  I've stayed indoors most of the day except to go out to deliver a catalogue to one of my customers.  The winter has really done a number on our roads, which are full of pot holes - and if it isn't the potholes its the construction.  On the way to my customer I passed a now empty hospital and was filled with memories of the days I taught nursing students on those wards.  If those walls could speak!  I sometimes picture the ghosts of patients and staff walking those halls and flying out the gaps of the once paned windows. Silly of me I know.  I wonder when a decision will be made what to do with those now ruins.

Because of the cool weather, I was once again indoors in the craft room.  That's no sacrifice believe me.  But first I received a phone call from a client who had ordered a hand made card from me before.  I also volunteered with her doing foot care so I know her well.  She wanted to place another very special order for a very special occasion.  I was happy to oblige, so when I went down to the craft room I made that card first.  I'll post the card later.

The card I want to post today is a Starfold card - one I made last night, but finished this morning.
I have made this card before for a design team I was on - and even did a tutorial, but do you think I could find it?  No!  So I went to the Internet and found  a You Tube video (no speaking but good demonstration and print over) that I followed.  You can find the video here Hope you find it helpful.

I used Island Indigo paper and retired DSP.  The rose was made using the Spiral Rose die.

The envelope was made using the envelope maker.

This shows the card opened.

Some people have commented that they found the linked video too difficult to follow because it is in metric.  Being Canadian I forget that not everyone is conversant in metric.  So I found another video on Splitcoast stampers for you.  Just follow the link to this tutorial which has a video on it.
