Bendi Card

Well I miss read the challenge for my NZ card swap group.  Jude's challenge was to make a Bendi Frame card- with an animal on it,  and I did a Bendi Fold card. Back to the drawing board for me!  Oh well, I'd never made one before so it will was great to try the fold out.  I'm sure I'll find someone to send it to.... Plus as it is a scene card I'll be entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge -Create a Scene.

I googled Bendi card and found some great tutorials, but went with the one I found at Splitcoaststampers.  I don't usually use American sizes for my cards - our card stock is slightly longer and slightly less in width... but today I had bought some card stock that was wider and taller than usual so was able to trim it to the correct 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" size.  So here's what I did :

I've made a Garden scene.  I used the new green card stock to made the card base. I used some gorgeous patterned paper.  Wish I knew who made it, but the packaging has gone!  It's A4 sized and card weight.  I missed measured, so needed to added the scalloped edge to hide where it was a bit short.  It think it gives the impression of grass.   I added a park bench die cut (Couture Creations) cut from brown card and two kitties ( Cosy Kitties - Poppy Stamps) cut from black card.  I used a floral die (Bella Bouquet - Memory Box) to add in one corner.  Added some Nuvo drops in Ivory Seashell and Autumn Red.   Added a sentiment from an Altenew stamp set - Engraved Flowers.

I enjoyed the making this card fold and will try it again some time.

Thanks for stopping by.

I love your garden scene. I've never made a bendi card, so I appreciate your challenge in creating one. And if you hadn't told me about the added green die at the bottom, I NEVER would have known it was to cover a booboo because it looks like it should be there.
