My Card Today

Today’s project is an Infinity Card (aka Never Ending Card). Since I have seen this card a few times but never really understood how it worked, I decided it was time to try one. Would I call it easy? It was, but there are pitfalls, and you will probably spot mine. So, I will link you to two tutorials that show you how to do it AND give you some suggestions to avoid my mistakes. I used a whopping seven stamp sets for this project, but Cheerful Daisies is where I got the pretty flowers.

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, as promised, here are the two Never Endtutorials that can help you make one: Splitcoaststampers Never Ending Card Tutorial and Mixed Up Craft Never Ending Tutorial. Both tutorials have blog posts and videos to make it easy for you. This card will fit into a 6″ envelope for mailing.
  • Card Base measurements: 4 pieces of 3″ x 6″ cardstock and scored at 1-1/2″ and 4-1/2″ on the 6″ side. Splitcoaststampers also scored them on the 3″ side at 1-1/2″ but Mixed Up Craft doesn’t.
  • DSP Panels: 2-7/8″ squares (8)
  • 1-3/8″ Panels (20) I had originally cut long rectangles (stated in Splitcoaststampers tutorial) but ended up cutting them into squares.
  • After you watch the videos, you will see that the card base is easily made by laying two of the 3×6 panels down and laying the other two on top in the opposite direction then gluing the 4 outer corners together. Then, burnish those score lines and go through all of the possible folds. Once you start adding layers, they do get easier to fold/flip.

Now, the FUN part!

  • Once that was done, it was time to decorate! Instead of adding lots of layers, I decided to sponge the edges of the panels with Crumb Cake ink for a fun grunge look.
  • After that, I stamped the flowers, punched them out and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Then, I started stamping sentiments from several stamp sets for the large squares and this is where I started making mistakes. Honestly, I don’t think this fun fold is meant to use lots of sentiments, so just keep yourself to a couple and decorate the rest of the panels with images of your choice. For my card, some of the sentiments will end up upside down with the fold and my “OCD” just doesn’t like that.
  • Finally, I added Dots that I colored with Stampin’ Blends and the Brushed Brass Butterflies because both of these embellishments are rather flat.

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:
