|The magazine tutorial I followed - this is what I was aiming for.|
With these tutorials I often find that the pictures don't always give a clear indication of exactly what you need to do, and what angle to score at etc. Once you've come back to it with fresh eyes it's a lot easier to work out, but my first impressions were that I didn't know exactly how the card was supposed to sit on a surface when completed, and I wasn't sure which card would give the best result - it just said that thicker card makes it more sturdy. I think a little more guidance and better pictures of the scoring and folding process would have helped here.

My finished result does look a bit different to the magazine tutorial, so I still have some work to do, to get the main part of the card more of a rotated square than a narrow diamond, and my measurements may have been off, because I'm not sure if the folds are supposed to overlap or not. Apart from that it was a fun card to make and decorate, and I think the finished result looks really cute. I'm also happy to have a finished project, what you don't see here, is my binned attempts at some other concept cards, where the instructions don't make sense -yet.
