#75 Construction Cards (get your scoreboard out!)

Hi All!
Happy Friday to everyone :-)
Another Friday and another challenge over at Cardcrafters Circle.
This week we're playing with construction cards so think Easel; Neverending; Trifold; Theatre style etc etc etc!!
Our sponsor this week is:
Digi Darlas, click onto the logo to get into their brilliant shop!
Here's  my construction card; it's a theatre style card :-)
I made this on my Hougie Board :-)
The image is 'kitten with a ball' and I thought he was really cute!
To make a theatre card is really easy. Just work out the width you want (this one is 6'' square card) and add 4'' to the width when you cut the card.
Then score at 1'', 2'', 8'', 9''.
I cut an aperture out of the front card using an Xcut die and then ran it through my Crafters Companion A4 embossing folder (which is really yummy!!)
Stick your sides together, punch a hole through the top of bottom and thread your ribbon. The sides will fold in so you can get into a 6x6 envelope. Just watch out for too many embellishments or you'll have to make a box for it.
I crochet'd the flower to keep the 'wool' theme going :-)
The trim inside the aperture is some pink paper punched with one of the large Martha Stewart border punches.

And here's a close up of my little cheeky kitten (coloured in with Spectrum Noirs)
Can't wait to see what you create - have fun!!
