Bridge Card

The other day I watched a video of Jennifer McGuire making a card with this different fold, which she called a Bridge Card and I thought I would like to try it out. Being in the UK I had to work out sizes to match our card and envelopes, so after a little experiment with a bit of scrap paper, I managed to work it out.
Despite being 3 Dimensional, it still folds flat for mailing.
I am often asked for cards with specific references, by members of my choir, . This one was for an old Naval friend with whom the choir member had served in submarines many years ago. He was to be having his 68th birthday and he was a Scot. The tartan he wears for formal occasions is the Ancient Lamont. So here is a card with the Lamont tartan, a picture of a submarine, his age and his name. I hope it will do!
My friend sent me a picture of the tartan which I printed out to use as the background. I used a  clipart submarine ( I thought it better to have a cartoon type image rather than risk getting the wrong class of submarine).
I made the name element with my Silhouette, mounting it on an offset and covering with a layer of Glossy accents.
