Hello Friends! You know what day it is, it's Wednesday and that means it is time for another Heartfelt Creations project. This week, I tried a new-to-me fancy fold. This week I created a Bendi card. I have seen a bunch of these very neat cards and decided I would give it a try. I will say that I used an SVG cut file for my Silhouette to create my Bendi card because it also has an envelope you can create for this unique card. If you don't have a digital cutter, you can easily create this card. Just google the Bendi Card technique and you will find many sizes and ways of creating this card.
Here is my card for this week....
Here is a closer look........

Instructions: Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". To begin, I used a SVG cut file for a Bendi card that included an envelope that the card would fit in. (If you don’t have a digital cutter, Silhouette, Cricut, etc., you can google the Bendi card and find all kinds of different sizes.) Once my bendi card pieces were cut, I set them aside.
For the top edge of the bendi card, I die cut a regal borders dies from burgundy card. I adhered that into place as shown. Then I die cut another of the regal borders die from the burgundy cardstock and then I trimmed the border so that it would fit the middle portion of the card as shown. Once those borders where adhered into place, I covered my 3 sections of the card with patterned paper from the collection. I used 2 - 6" x 6" panels that are included in the collection for this card. I cut the first 6" x 6" panel so that the sentiment would be in the top right hand corner of the card as shown. The other strips were cut from the second 6" x 6" panel. Once the bendi pieces where covered with patterned paper, I adhered my card together. I used a craft knife to cut the slits where they were needed to assemble the card.
Next I created the roses and leaves to decorate the card. I stamped the two smaller stamps in the Classic Rose stamp set onto white cardstock using Toffee Crunch ink. I die cut them with the matching dies and then sponged them with the Victorian Velvet distress ink. Then I used the Deluxe flower shaping kit to shape and create all my flowers.
I stamped the green patterned paper with the vine image from Classic Rose Vines set using olive ink. I die cut the vines with the matching die and shaped them with my deluxe flower shaping kit. Then I assembled all my flowers and leaves.
