October Blog hop

Welcome to our Monthly Blog Hop.  Every month we show what we are creating using Close To My Heart products.  We hope to inspire you, so you can recreate what we show you.  Look for the highlighted name at the bottom of each post and click on it and it will take you to another blog, follow that until you get back here and you did the loop.  Enjoy!!

This is what I have been working on........Never ending card. These cards are fun and you can't stop playing with them.  The card opens up to reveal the next image and so forth until you get back to the beginning. Almost like this blog.   You start with  2  6x6" pcs of paper and you score them at 1 1/2" on the left and right side. Then cut them in half, cutting through the score lines. Place the first 2pcs  side by side with the score lines going horizonal. Place the other 2 pcs directly on top with the score lines going vertical. Glue them together just at the corners. If you look at the first side below, the glue with be under the spots where the pine cone paper is.  Just on those four corners only.  Then you just start adding your decorative pieces.  I used the picture my life paper that comes in the "Tis the Season" paper pack. You get 2 sheets of this paper, so you can make 2 cards.  The only other paper I used is a small amount of red and some pine cone paper. (Side #1 & Side #4)

To see a video on the neverending card go to Joyce Houck Close to My Heart Facebook group and ask to join.
