Guest Designer - Astrid Maclean

It is time to welcome our first Guest Designer of 2018.  Please say hello to Astrid Maclean of Astrid's Artistic Efforts.  Astrid was the Design Team's top pick from the Timeworn challenge.


My name is Astrid and I blog at Astrids Artistic Efforts. I have been papercrafting for many years and my favourite styles are vintage and mixed media. I love stamping and stenciling, creating journals, cards and tags and am happiest when covered in inks and paint.


After thinking for a long time how to do justice to the chosen challenge theme I decided to create a fold out triangular card that can be used for many different occasions. There are many threes included in the project, - 3 layers, 3 embellishments and of course the three is embedded in the shape of the card. 





All you need to create this project is some 12 by 12 card and your favourite inks, stamps and stencils. If you want to know how to put such a card together, there is a full tutorial on my blog here.

Once you have hopped over to check out Astrid's tutorial for this fun card, come on back and share your own project in the Three Is Not A Crowd challenge, which can be found HERE and runs until 11:55 pm EST on January 16, 2018.
