Happy Everything

Have you ever made a bridge card? A few months ago I watched a couple of videos by two super talented crafters: Natasha Valkovskaya and Caly Person demonstrating this technique, and I added it to my "list of things to try." Well, the current AAA Birthday Challenge to create a 3D project was just the kick in the pants I needed to make that happen ;)

Check out my first bridge card:

This was so much fun to make!!! I'll link the videos below as they are awesome and provide perfect instructions and lots of tips for making these kinds of cards :)

I love that they fold down flat and can still be mailed in a regular A2 size envelope. And when they're popped up they're so super cute!!! Here's a look at this one standing up:

Since I enjoyed the process of making this one so much I decided to make another with the same layout but a different color combo:

And here's a closer look:

Here are the links to the videos that inspired my creations:

I hope you'll give it a try! Let me know if you do!

  4. WOW - I love these graphic bridge cards! The images you chose are wonderful and they play perfectly against the softly inked sky!
