 Hello Paper Artists

I have enjoyed playing with the new Sherlock is Puzzled Collection.

There are 2 Journals on youtube:



There is always some left for a card:

Mocha cardstock 12"w x 6"hi with scares at 4.5" & 9"

Cream jute twine, black cardstock

The cover has a background from one of the journal papers; the cut & create is fussy cut, foam mounted & allowed to have a 3D effect. There is a strip of black cardstock on the edge. Jute twine is wrapped around the front & the first score.

The inside of the card. The 2 Sherlocks are framed in black & mounted flat. The background paper in the centre is from the same journal paper used  on the front

The 3rd panel is closed over to show that it also has a black strip on its edge; the magnifying glass is framed in black, foam mounted, has a piece of jute twine tied around it & acts as a tuck spot for the 2 tags tucked in it.

The back is simple with a Sherlock quote framed in black & flat-mounted

Hope you get some ideas from this trifold card - the style can be adapted to any kind of theme.

Have a lock at the videos for more ideas using this Collection

Bye for now




PS the videos are also on Instagram
