NZSU blog challenge

another challenge on the NZSU blog - this time for a cami trifold card, from this tutorial on splitcoaststampers.

I had a pack of afternoon tea paper out from making up the sample for my stationery box class coming up soon (contact me if you want to join us!) - so I decided to use that as my base. Then realised that probably wouldn't be strong enough, so grabbed the nearest colour that went with it, and wild wasabi was it!
I also don't own the slit punch (I KNOW!!! how do I cope?? well, I'm telling you it's next on my list - however (digression ahead!) - it bugs me, because the main reason I wanted it to start with was to make matchbook fold cards, where you fold the bottom bit up, and use it to tuck the bit in, but it is the wrong way round, and that made me mad!! So I have avoided it. I am over it now. My therapist says I am doing a LOT better ;) ) so, anyway...... I used the horizontal slit punch instead, and if I do say so myself - I like it! :)

This uses Live your Dream, which is one of the Bushfire Appeal sets at the moment. This generated a LOT of discussion this afternoon at $3 cards, as some of my customers tried to work out if it would be in the new catalogue, as it didn't have an asterisk next to it, but it DID specify that it was in the summer mini! phew, too complicated!

Personally, I hope it sticks around - we got it free at regionals, and I was gutted, coz I didn't like it! Now, it is one of the first sets I reach for! :) Funny how that happens.

Cute card! I'm going to have to do some of these challenges just to get motivated again! Wish I could come and join in your class with you, but alas it's a tad too far for me to drive. Have a great class! Sharlene
