Hiya and welcome to my step by step guide / tutorial on how to make the Kinetic card above. In this tutorial I will take you through how to make your own Kinetic card at home.
To begin making this card I took a sheet of A4 holographic card, I turned the card over so that the back was facing me in a landscape position and then drew lines in pencil at 4cm in from both sides and then 5cm in from the top and the bottom. Next I took my craft knife cut along the 5cm in lines (at top and bottom of the page) cutting from the line 4cm in from the left to the line 4cm in from the right (do not cut past the lines). Then i took my embossing tool and my ruler and scored all the way along both of the lines that were marked 4cms in from the sides and then measured lines at 99mm in from each side and scored each of them from top to bottom of the card. Once this is done you need to bend the card as shown in this picture so that where the middle piece is a mountain fold then a valley fold the top and bottom are a valley fold followed by a mountain fold.
Now that the card structure is built I move on to creating the paper to decorate it, to begin with i stamped several of the flower image facing different directions all over a white piece of super smooth card using perfect medium. I mixed some of the PanPastel with embossing powder and sprinkled it over the images, using a heat tool to heat emboss the image. Next I used the PanPastel and some of their range of sofft tools to cover the entire surface of the product (the great thing is with PanPastels this is an extremely quick process, you can mix the exact shade you want and it uses almost no product at all, If using them for the first make sure you have a little pot to keep any excess in for use another time as you will almost certainly not need as much as you think!) When the entire area was covered and I was happy with the shade I used kitchen paper towels to buff the colour a little and then sprayed with fixative. Turning the card over to measure on the back I measured 7 rectangles and cut them out, 2 at 21cm x 3.5cm (for the sides of the card), 2 at 9cm x 5cm (for the middle panels at the top and bottom of the card), 2 at 5cm x 10cm (for center panels to the left and the right) and 1 at 9cm x 10cm (for the center panel).
Once you have all of your panels cut out stick them to the appropriate place using a flat glue and put the card to one side to dry. I took another piece of white card stamped out my greeting using perfect medium and used black PanPastel to colour it then using the same shade of purple PanPastel i mixed earlier I coloured the rest of the area around the greeting purple (i also at this point took a piece of white ribbon and used the purple to colour that too). I cut this out using my nestabilities dies and cut a slighty larger version of the same shape using the same type of holographic card that we used for the card base. I layered these up and stuck them to the top right corner of the card being carefull to only stick it to the outside edges and not the center panel at all (which needs to be able to move in a different direction to the outside edges).
Next I made some paper flowers using the wet scrunching technique (I will post a separate walk through for these on here soon) and when they were finished and dried I stuck them on to the card.
Finally I took the piece of ribbon I coloured earlier and stuck it to the top left of the card.
Your homemade kinetic card is now complete, I hope you have enjoyed reading my card making tutorial.
