Good Morning everyone
Today im sharing a lever fold card i made for my mum for her best friends birthday. First time ive made one and as always i learnt from this first one by the mistakes. I was given these beautiful papers by a friend, its a polish company called AltairArt, a new company to me but the quality is outstanding so i let them do the work here...
6.5x6.5" card. Using instruction i found on pinterest i made up my lever card from A3 cream cardstock, i went with cream as felt it was softer with the papers i wanted to use. As im dangerous with a craft knife i used a square die to cut the mechanism aperture, marking where i wanted it with pencil as you only need to cut half way...... I then cut and adhered different papers to the sections and glued the 2 parts together.
I die cut another square the same size as the aperture and glued into place, a smaller one from paper. I die cut, inked and shaped a flower, added it to the flower with a die cut floral circle. Gem to finish

I then made a version for my niece Lizzy's 8th birthday, i found this fun ice cream themed paper in my stash and some ice cream dies too so thought it would be the ideal theme as Lizzy does love her food😁
6x5.5" card. I made up the card using cream pearlised cardstock and a circle die for the lever action & aperture. I covered the whole front of the card with the ice cream paper after cutting a circle out of the middle, i then used that circle to line up on the middle topper section. I die cut and layered the ice creams using kraft, gold & pale blue card. Computer printed sentiments die cut into circles, glued into place.
Showing it opened up, i used a different ice cream paper on the inside panels
To finish i added lots of glitter glues to the ice cream sprinkles and around the toppers
