The Hinged Card...Unhinged!

Good Morning Everybody!

Friday has arrived!!!!  Yahoooo!  Happy Good Friday to you all....

In yesterday's post, I wrote that I would do a video on how to make the hinged card and i have included it below.  It's such a fun card to make and I hope you give it a shot.

There are so many ways you can embellish the card...so,  I let it the paper set the tone...




Here are a couple of shots of the card I worked on during the video.  I used some embellishments that my friend Fiona sent me to spruce up the outside.  Take a look...




And now for the video on how I made it....



That's it for now!  Hope you all have an amazing Friday!  Make it an Awesome day!

  16. Thank you so much for putting together this video showing how to make the hinge card. I watched you do the beautiful flower card on Ustream but missed several of the fine points. It will be so much easier to go back and review how to make the card with this video.

    Happy Easter to you, Cesar and Momma!!!

  18. Jim, I just wanted to thank you for this fabulous design and tutorial, I've posted three cards I made using your technique with links back to your blog and today posted a note book cover I made, extending your technique to make a thicker spine. Hope this is OK with you and many thanks for the inspiration, I'm spending the whole day today making note books for Christmas presents lol! You're a very clever man. Kind Regards, Maddy x
