Hello friends and Happy New Year! For me, 2019 is about trying new things. Particularly in my crafting. Have you ever made a Bendi card? This is MY FIRST attempt at a Bendi card. Honestly, I didn't know what a Bendi card was. I had to do a little research, gotta love google images. A Bendi card is basically a card with two flaps that interlock to create a rounded bend fold. The card can be closed flat and mailed in a standard envelope. Once I understood what I was making I set to create a template. I like to make the majority of my cards portrait orientation. Using one sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper you can create two bendi 4.25 x 5.5 cards. Download this template if you like my design.
This card features all sorts of fun new products available NOW in the new Occasions Catalog and as part of Saleabration promotion. The beautiful papers on this card come from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series papers. The small colorful butterfly has been punched from the papers using the Butterfly Duet punch. And the intricate butterflies that have been die cut in white are created using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlet dies. A full list of supplies can be found at the end of this post.
Many of my crafty friends on this hop will have videos showing how they created their bendi cards. These are excellent resources if are are in the market to create a bendi card for yourself..
