TV card

Good evening, everyone!  Can I just say another big HELLO and warm welcome to my newest followers Rach and Carolyn - thanks for joining my little blog ladies and I hope you find some inspiration in what I do!

So, onto tonight's creations...First I have a short tutorial for a TV card that I concocted today - well, I say short, it depends how much I waffle on!?!  Without further a do, here's the finished card...
...side view...
...and back...
...and here's how I made it :- To start, you'll need 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 12 x 21cm, one for the front and one for the back panel...
...place in a landscape orientation on a score board and score A4 half fold...
...move this score line to DL and score A4 half fold again, repeat with the other piece of cardstock.
 For the front of the TV, cut a piece of scrap card to 10cm square and round the corners using a punch.  Place on the left hand side of the front panel, as shown above and draw around, then cut out...
...you can attach acetate behind the aperture if you want to, then place adhesive on the left hand tab and attach the front and back panels together, as below...
...decorate the inside of your TV...
...(I know, the picture has magically changed into a golfing image from the original rugby one - this is because I made 2 cards, photographing the bits of one and the completed card of another!)  I decorated my card with papers and decoupage images from my Boys2Men CD-ROM.  After decorating the inside,  fold all score lines, place adhesive along the right hand tab and attach to the front panel side, creating the TV box card...
...I added an aerial made using my circle nesties and some strips of silver card, buttons made form large half pearls coloured with Promarker Black and a round of the same base card with black peel offs to look like a speaker.  I finished with a sentiment and there you have it...
You could take the card as far as you want, adding wood effect embossed panels to the sides and front, and maybe even adding a photograph as the programme?!  I just thought it was something fun and different from a square card.

Next I made a trophy card using another image from the Boys2Men disc...

...I thought this could be for any congratulatory (is that even a word?!) occasion, birthday, well done, you passed, etc.  You could add a sentiment to either side of the base and a plaque to write on (I wanted to keep the wood effect embossing visible, as it's just for a sample card.)  So, there you go, 2 more samples to add to my collection, which is looking rather depleted, I have to say!  Hope you like them and thanks for popping over.  See you soon, Lisa X
