Never Ending Card Tutorial

The Never Ending Card is absolutely amazing. It would be such a fun gift for a child or an adult and could be use for a birthday card, just because card, or even a celebration. Limitless opportunities.

The card opens to 4 pages. The first page is above.

This is page 2. I had to use the bone folders to add a bit of weight so I could take the photos by myself. It's after midnight and Hal has already gone to bed. I just couldn't wait to get this card up on my blog for you to see.

This is page 3 of the card. I stamped the woody wagon over the center divide. I thought it worked quite well this way.

This is page 4 of the card. Now when you open this page, it then goes back to page 1 and you can start all over again. What fun.

I learned about this technique/card style by watching a video from Dawn. Dawn is a very talented individual. Here's the link to her video:
scroll down a bit on the page to see it.

This card ends up 6" x 6", so will require a special envelope (not a standard envelope). If mailed, probably will require extra postage too because it is an odd size.

I used Just Beachy stamp set with this card. It is item #113796 from Stampin' Up! and are on pg 14 of the occasions mini catalog that is valid Apr 1 - June 30th , 2009. I used the watercolor pencils (Item #101879 on Pg 152 of main catalog). It was a bit time consuming to color all the images in, but so worth it ... don't you agree!

I am one of Dawn's glitter queens. I watched her video but didn't attempt the card. It looked so confusing. I'm glad I checked out your blog. I am officially a follower. You did an awesome job on the card. TFS!

WOW ... thank you all for leaving comments about my blog.

The Just Beachy stamp set is one of my favorites and I use it often. Because it is in the Mini Occasions Catalog, we will only have it available thru the end of June. There is no guarantee that it will be in the new main catalog as of July 1.

GailnGA, I so hope you will make the card also. Once it is glued together, it all starts to make sense. I had so much fun making it. Dawn is an awesome teacher, I love her videos. She has been such an inspiration to so many.

Now I'm off to check out everyone's blogs.
