Happy Anniversary JessicaLynnOriginal

This week is a special week... it's the 11th Anniversary of JessicaLynnOriginal and we're celebrating all week long! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

Each day this week a different design team member is featuring a JLO image on her blog - with a bit of show and tell. We have each been asked to show a little something extra this time - our cardmaking process, our coloring skills, a special technique or fold. That sort of thing.

I love layering with black cardstock, so my first intent was to make two cards - mostly identical, only one with the black layering and one without... to show how much difference that makes. But then I got a different idea... and went a different direction. I chose to show you a rather unique fold, and how I made it.

These are the items I started with:

The card base is 8 1/2" x 4 3/4". It is scored in the middle (4 1/4") and also 2 1/8" from each end.

The layers of designer paper and matting matches each of the panels.

There are two cardstock circles, scored in half, and a 1" x 4 3/4" piece of cardstock scored down the middle lengthwise.

A square of netting was bunched and attached to the back side of the card base, using an additional cardstock circle to hold it in place.

Sticky strip was adhered to both halves of the 1" x 4 3/4" strip of cardstock and it was attached to the inside of the card base, creating a box-like card that stands on its own.

The two scored circles were adhered to the "box" with sticky strip.

Brentwood - Happy Valentine's Day I Love You Brentwood (to be exact) - was adhered to those two scored circles. A gem heart was added for embellishment.

Here's the other side:
