Hi everyone, last week I had planned to make a kinetic card during my Facebook Live, but after seeing a post by the lovely Jennifer Maguire I decided to make this beautiful Winged Bendi Card instead.
She asks all cardmakers to make a card in the colours of the Ukrainian flag or with Sunflowers, which is their national flower and also a symbol of hope and share them on social media with the hashtag #CardsForUkraine
We had a lovely craft along and now many of you have now been sharing your beautiful cards. Let’s fill our social channels with the colours of Ukraine showing them that we stand with them, care for them, and are thinking of everyone affected.
There are also many card drives and ways to donate to the many charities helping those in need, so please check your local areas and look online. I’ve also shared a link here with helpful ways to check that your donations are going to legitimate charities and directly to those who need it.
If you would like to see how I made this one check out my Facebook Live here.
For my YouTube version, I decided to make a Mother’s day version with an acetate front.
I loved making this version and I think it’s up there in my top 10 of favourite cards I’ve ever made. I think it’s the heat embossing on the vellum, it just gives the card such an elegant look.
These cards all fold flat and will fit into a 6′ x 8′ envelope, and you have space on the back to stamp and write your message.
I also used my decorative edge dies on this one, but you can see it looks lovely without, but I always like to share lots of ways to decorate your cards, and add other dies.
SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THESE CARDS
For the Sunflower card, I used supplies from the PS kit 22 which is now sold out.
Cloud embossing folder available here.
Chunky Alphabet dies are available here.
MEASUREMENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THESE CARDS
1 piece of 8′ x 6′ card for the back of the card.
Score along the 8′ side at 1′ & 7′
1 piece of 7′ by 1.1/2 or 6′ the height can be whatever width you want. These sizes are what I used on each card in the acetate and cardstock.

2-4 pieces of 2.3/4 x 5.3/4 pattern paper for the 2 middle panels and back of the card.
2-4 pieces of 3/4′ x 5.3/4 pattern paper for the side panels on the front and back.
