It was Jane's turn to set the Daring Cardmakers Dare this week, can you believe we've all had a go at setting a dare now and we're back to Jane, its fantastic! Because I'm feeling a bit simple right now, and time is short, I thought I'd go for a simple card this week. Its made in Word so I thought I'd share it. Of course you can dress it up any way you want. I think it could be good for those Men's cards myself but I'm in more of a colourful mood!
Firstly for the 30 card, cut a pice of A4 card in half lengthwise, or for the 20 card cut it so its the full A4 length by 15cm or 5 3/4 inch.
Next you need to cut around the numbers on the right hand side of the score lines. Ive marked it here in green. Use a craft knife and cut leaving a small border round the printed number.
Next, you need to score the folds. I have marked them on here with a heavy pen so you can see.
The first score is 1 1/2 inch from the left hand edge.
The second score is 3 inch from the left hand edge. (Be careful not to score over the number as you dont want that to fold)
The third score is 5 1/4 inch from the left hand edge
The fourth score is 7 3/4 from the left hand edge. (Again, be careful not to score through the number)
Now you can fold your card into shape
The templates for printing the cards are here.

Next, print the numbers onto patterned paper or contrasting card.

Now cut these numbers out and stick them either with glue or foam tape, now youre ready to decorate. If you do have a go at this I'd love to see, leave a link so I can come and have a peek!
