Sunday Scoring #21 Block Card

Hi everyone – a fold flat 3D card for you today – and hopefully a tip or two.  This is a popular card for babies and young children as it looks very much like the traditional building blocks.  It is just straight scoring and cutting – but if you are careful you can part cut and score which makes the whole card more stable.  Many of the original cards I have seen use 12 x 12 paper, however I didn’t have any in the new incolours, so I have adapted so that it can be made with EITHER UK or US A4 card.   I have used the new Painters Palette DSP and the new incolours Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum, with an old favourite – Barnyard Babies.
