Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 18- Bendy card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Today's 5x5 bendy card started life as a 5x7 but part way through paking it I realized the proportions were a little off so it got a 2 in hair cut. A bendy card is a card made from a panel scored in half and a short panel in front of it that is not scored. When the card is opened, the scored panel will bend causing the front panel to dome. What’s nice about this type of card is how flat it fits in the envelope yet is a domed card when opened.

I inked the background then attached the topper and greeting to the front panel. A message is stamped in the top right corner. Don’t score the panel before you ink it up because it will leave a dark line when you ink.

I really like the contents of today’s door. I don’t have a stamp like it and it is something I can get a lot of use out of.
