I’m obsessed with Craft Roulette.
It gives me so many rule/parameters that I end up with cards that are super extra. That’s me, super extra….JK I only do my hair and makeup for work, but I’m happy to be extra as a paper engineer.
This particular card was a journey for sure. @MaryGunnFunn messaged and asked if I would do a process video for one of my Craft Roulette cards, I and took on the challenge joyfully. Six days of card-making, and 4 hours of content later, I’m thinking I should maybe have started by remaking something instead of trying to capture my creative process over the course of the week and then editing it down to 24 minutes.
Project: Fancy Fold
Colors: Dusty Hues

This card was so fun, I'm working a fall-themed card next. I'll update when it's done, and show you how I did the magnet differently.
Card Base: 4.25 x 11"
Score at 3 inches and just shy of 5.5 inches (note, I recommend leaving a larger "spine" in the card. You may be better off scoring at 5 3/8"
Turn the base 180 degrees
Repeat scoring at 3 and 5.5 inches (or 5 3/8")
Snow Globe Holder Inside of Card: 4.25 x 7"
Score at 2 3/8, 3.5, and 4 5/8 (The video has the last measurement wrong. 4 5/8s is correct. Sorry for the confusion!)

Patterned paper for top measuring 1 9/16 x 4.25
