My Shaded Summer Double Bridge Tower Card

My card for you today is a double bridge card, which I then closed the ends to make two towers. I love this card and liked that I was able to use scraps taking hold of my craft table! Use any designer paper of your choice, but the OCD in me wanted to use one that didn’t have a particular pattern so I wouldn’t obsess about it.

My secrets to making this In The Moment project

  • Firstly, I used this Tutorial from Mixed Up Craft to make this card, although I did change up the measurements to create a 6″ x 6-1/2″ card. Full Disclosure: I should have made this card 6″ square but messed up and just went with it once I figured it out.
  • Cardstock measurements:
    • Card Base #1: 6″ x 6-1/2″ (2) – both pieces are scored at 1, 2, 4-1/2″ and 5-1/2″ on the 6-1/2″ side.
    • Card Base #2: 4″ x 6″ and both are scored at 1″ and 3″
  • Layers measurements:
    • Layer #1: Cardstock (4) – 3/4″ x 5-3/4″ and DSP (4) – 5/8″ x 5-5/8″
    • Layer #2: Cardstock (2) – 2-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ and DSP (2) – 2-1/8″ x 5-5/8″
    • Layer #3: Cardstock (2) – 1-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ and DSP (2) – 1-5/8″ x 5-5/8″
  • After that, I first glued both of the Layer #1 (bridge card base) together with glue then secured the second card base to the first card base with glue to make sure that everything fit perfectly and folded (pretty) flat.
  • Then, all of the panels were glued to the completed card base.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once I had all of the cutting done and put together, I stamped the two floral images from Shaded Summer and cropped them out with their coordinating dies.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment and cropped it out with the Tailor Made Tags die, then tied a bow with the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon.
  • Then, I mounted them all onto the large oval die (Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval Dies CCB-010) and adhered the images with glue and dimensionals.
  • CARD BACK: I cut out the flowers and leaves with Gray Granite and white cardstocks, then adhered them together with glue. After that, I cut out white cardstock with the large oval die, leaving it blank for a personal message.
  • Finally, I placed the clear Elegant Faceted Gems onto both panels for the touch of bling that makes every card special!
