When I launched the Push-Up Bra Blogging series a few weeks back I assured those of you with no interest in blogging tip whatsoever that I'd be continuing to blog my usual crafty-content in between.
And here I am! As good as my word.
In fact ... looking back I've realised that in between 6 Push-Up posts I've managed to squeeze 4 regular posts so I think I'm doing pretty well. [Apologies if my choice of phrasing there means that you've now got a mental image of something being squeezed in a push-up bra ...].
What's worth poiniting out here is that I've managed to maintain regular blogging alongside a special series due to using the approach I'm going to be sharing with you next week [on Thursday 19th April]. And if you're someone who ends up scrabbling around with projects and photos and blog posts all at the last minute, every time then this, more than any other approach in the series, is the one you NEED to read! [Consider this your last week of frantic last-minute blogging, because after next Thursday that's all going to change ... ].
OK, enough of the big talk and let's get on to today's crafty-share ... another fun, mini, tri-fold aperture card. This time with a sneaky stamped squid* hiding inside:[*OK, I think he's actually an octopus ... but that spoiled my alliterative introduction!]
This card uses a strip of kraft cardstock as a base just like the tri-fold aperture card I showed you earlier. Only with this one I didn't cover the card with patterned paper before die-cutting it, so I had to decorate around the X-Cut postage-stamp shaped aperture:
I even decorated the back of this one with text from an old Russian book about nuclear physics. Because nothing says 'Just thinking of you' like a card featuring an octopus and fun facts on fission.
ones which you can't bear to throw away as you'll find a cute use for the one day! [And now I have!].
Finally, here's a shot to help give you a better idea of the scale of this mini set:
That's my thumb which, for the record, is pretty average in size ... although it may have been easier to just tell you the finished card is approximately 8x8cm square!
I've got a couple more of these cards tucked up my sleeve [not literally, even though they are small enough!] ... so I'll share them some time soon. Before you're tired of tri-fold apertures. [Who said 'too late?'] ;-)
Right, I'll leave you to your Monday. The start of a new week sounds like the perfect time to catch-up on your Push-Up Bra reading ... and maybe squeeze in a £1 donation to my Save the Children fundraising afterwards? Maybe?
I'll see you on Wednesday if not before.
