Gerda Steiner designs - Valentines penguins harmonica card with english tutorial!




Vorige week heb ik een harmonica kaart gemaakt voor mijn neefje Niek. Ik had een online workshop van Hobbyvision gezien en de kaart was zo leuk om te maken dat ik er gewoon nog één moest maken. ;) Deze keer komt de kaart samen met een een engelse tutorial op het blog van Gerda Steiner designs. De nederlandse beschrijving kan op het blog van Jenine vinden.

Ik heb de kaart gemaakt met de superschattige stempelset Valentine penguins van Gerda Steiner designs. Ik heb verschillende afbeeldingen van de set gestempeld en deze heb ik allemaal ingekleurd met mijn Polychromos potloden en de zwarte glaze pen. Daarna heb ik de afbeeldingen uitgeknipt. De ballon van de pinguin is ook nog gekleurd met de Clear Spectrum noir sparkle pen. Ik heb de harmonica kaart gemaakt van rood karton. Op de voorkant heb ik 2 grote harten geplakt. Ik heb het grootste hart uit zwart karton gestanst en het kleinere hart heb ik uit rood stipjes papier gestanst. Om de kaart te sluiten heb ik een wit lintje gebruikt. Met een hartjes stans van de set Tag builder blueprints 5 van My favorite things heb ik een aantal hartjes gestanst uit zwart karton en deze heb ik op de kaart geplakt. De kleine xo-tjes heb ik met dezelfde stansset gemaakt.


Last week I posted a harmonica card for my nephew Niek. I saw an online workshop from Hobbyvision and this card was so much fun to make, that I had to make another one. ;) This time the card and tutorial will also be posted on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs

I made the card with the super adorable stampset Valentine penguins from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped several images from the set and then I coloured them all with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I coloured the balloon with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle pen. I made the card from red cardstock. On the front of the card I adhered 2 large hearts. The biggest heart was die-cut from black cardstock and the smaller one from red and white dotted paper. To close the card I used white ribbon. With a little heart die from the Tag builder blueprints 5 from My favorite things I have die-cut a couple of hearts from black cardstock and I adhered those on the card. The little xo's are made with the same dieset.


Ook deze keer heb ik weer een kaart gemaakt met 4 vierkantjes op een rij, zodat je woorden van 4 letters kunt gebruiken. Je kunt dit heel makkelijk aanpassen naar meer vierkantjes.

Just like last time I made a card with 4 squares in a row, so you can make 4 letter words. It is really easy to adjust this to more sqaures, so you can use longer words. 


Met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 42 van Crealies heb ik 12 vierkantjes uit rood-wit stipjes papier gestanst en met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 50 van Crealies heb ik 12 vierkanten uit zwarte karton gestanst en deze heb ik allemaal op elkaar geplakt en daarna in de kaart geplakt. Ik heb uit zwart karton de woorden I love you gestanst met de Journaling alphas dies van Neat and tangled. Ik heb de o van love vervangen door een zwart hart dat ik heb uitgestanst met de Gift wrapping: Tags and threads van Marianne design. Ik heb dezelfde dies gebruikt om 2 rode harten te stansen. Op 2 van de vierkanten heb ik nog een pinguin van de stempelset Valentine penguins van Gerda Steiner designs geplakt.


With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 42 from Crealies I have die-cut 12 squares from red-white dotted paper. I used the Crea-nest-lies XXL 50 from Crealies to die-cut another 12 sqaures from black cardstock and I adhered them on top of each other and glued them in the card. I have die-cut the words I love you from black cardstock with the Journaling alphas dies from Neat and tangled. I replaced the o in the word love with a black heart that I have die-cut with the Gift wrapping: Tags and threads from Marianne design. I used the same dies to cut another 2 hearts from red cardstock. On 2 of the squares I adhered 2 cute penguins from the stampset Valentine penguins from Gerda Steiner designs.



Binnenin de kaart heb ik nog een afbeelding van de stempelset Valentine penguins van Gerda Steiner designs geplakt. Boven de afbeelding heb ik een aantal hartjes geplakt die ik met de Tag builder blueprints 5 van My favorite things uit zwart karton heb gestanst. De tekst komt uit dezelfde stempelset en deze heb ik uitgestanst met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 52 van Crealies.


Inside the card I used another image from the stampset Valentine penguins from Gerda Steiner designs. Above the image I adhered a couple of heart that I have die-cut from black cardstock with the Tag builder blueprints 5 from My favorite things.  The sentiment is from the same stampset and I have die-cut it with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 52 from Crealies


En dan nu de engelse tutorial voor deze kaart. De nederlandse beschrijving is te vinden op het blog van Jenine.

And this is the turorial for this card. My tutorial is for a card with 4 squares in a row, but you can adjust it very easy to more sqaures if you want to use longer words.


Start with cutting 3 pieces of cardstock. The sizes are 13 x 13 cm or 5 by 5 inch (cu 2 of this size) and cut one piece from 13 x 15 cm or 5 by 6 inch. If you want more squares in a row, make that last piece longer with 3 cm or 1 inch for every square you want to add. So if you want to have for example 6 squares in a row, you cut the paper 13 bij 21 cm or 5 by 8 inch.


Make scoring lines every 1,5 cm or every 0,5 inch.


Fold the cardstock.



Adhere glue on the first en last strip and glue the front and back of the card on the harmonica part.



Take a long piece of ribbon and glue it onto the back of the card. DON'T glue it on the front of the card!!!



Make sure the front of the card is facing you and tie the ribbon into a bow, to make the decorating of the front of the card easier.



Put double sided tape on the square you are going to use to decorate the front of the card. Make sure there is no glue where the ribbon is on the front of the card. We don't want the ribbon glued on the front of the card.



Cut 12 squares from cardstock with the size of 4 by 4 cm or 1,5 inch by 1,5 inch.



Put doublesided tape on the edge of each square. Keep 4 squares seperate from the other ones.



Start adhering the first square on the first fold. Leave a little room, don't glue it on the edge of the card.



To make sure all the squares are glued in the same place in the card, make sure you place the second square exactly on top of the first square.



Then push the second fold against the second square and they will be both in the same place. 



You can attach the thirth and fourth square the same way.  



Adhere the 5th square just like the first square. Don't glue at the bottom edge but leave a little space between the bottom and the square. Then adhered the other 3 squares.



Turn the card around and adhere the middle sqaures on the other side of each fold. Make sure the space between all the squares is even. 



This is how it looks when all the sqaures are adhered on the card. The 4 in the middle go in the opposite direction of the squares on the top and bottom.



If you carefully pull on the left side of the card, it will lay down all flat and then you can easily decorate all the squares.
