LEJ Designs challenge.

Hi all, this is the first of the monthly challenges over at LEJ Designs.
The challenge will now run from the 7th of every month, with a prize of four digis of your choice from the shop.
I hope you all enjoy taking part in these challenges, I know we look forward to seeing your creations.
This is my contribution to the challenge this month, I gave this to my daughter for her 4th birthday she is constantly covered in mud lol.


 Here is a very rough guide on how to make this card as we all like things differently, and size will matter when it comes to measuring your score lines.
Firstly I took a A4 sheet of green card and placed a (grande spellbinder) large scalloped square die, roughly in the middle of the paper and cut it out.
I then scored at 5cm and 7.5 cm in on each side.

Then I cut the top and bottom down so there was only about 1cm above and below the scalloped edge, before I used another from this nest of dies to scallop the edges. 
After lining with yellow card I folded on the score lines and put together before embellishing.
You may prefer to embellish beforehand but I wanted to see it how it would look finished as I went along. 

Have fun and remember to check back next month for another challenge and a picture of our new arrival.

    1. Thank you, I didn't think to use acetate it would definitely make a aperture of this size slightly more sturdy, I will try it next time I make one. x
