Add a number.....

This week's challenge at CD Sundays is "Add a number" and as a close friend is about to turn 60, the number that sprang to mind is 60. And as I'm not 60 yet, not for AGES (well, a couple of years) I chose this cheeky image and background from Joanna Sheen's Viva La Divas CD to make her card with.

I've made the flaps with the number on fold back, so that if she wants to hide her age when she displays the card it will be easy to turn them back!

  9. I like this. I've got a friend who is 60 soon and that would be perfect for her.
    Might have to adapt your idea for her - thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Love this shape. Did you use two pieces of A4 or just the one. I'd love to share this shape with my crafters if I may. Good luck with your challenge card.

    1. I used two pieces - folded each in half then stuck the left hand panel of one over the right hand one of the other, so the central panel of the finished card is double thickness. Then I cut, scored and folded the two side panels to make the flaps. I hope I've made that clear - I can see the picture of how I did it in my mind but I'm not sure I've put it into words very well!
