Blocking unwanted followers

Before I show my card, I thought I'd share some information for blocking unwanted followers on Blogger.  I read recently on a blogging friend's blog that she was unable to block a spam follower.  I had a similar follower a while ago and managed to work out how to block them. 
1.Click on the ‘Stats’ button on the editing page, at the top of the page it shows how many followers you have. 
2. Click on this and it brings up a list of all your followers, with the option to block any individual follower. 
Hope this helps anyone who has been having a similar problem with unwanted followers.

Onto my card.  I saw this idea on the Nifty Noodles Crafting Facebook page for using up leftover thin strips of card to make a tent fold card. 
    The patterned paper is from a Trimcraft 'Sail Away' paper pad.  The yacht is a new die I won in the Memory Box Challenge.  The sails come as separate die cuts which makes the yacht easy to assemble. The cloud is one of the dies from the Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds', with a little creative cutting to make it fit the space.  The stitched plain and scalloped circles are MB die cuts too.

This photo shows the inside of the card.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Stampin' Up 'Sailing Home' set.  The back of the card has a plain white panel, layered on a red mat. 

I am joining in the following challenges:

  4. Hi Liz

    I hope all is well with you.

    Many thanks for your lovely comments on my blog .. .. .. so sorry I haven't been around for a while but life has given me other missions I have needed to sort. But hopefully things are getting back on track now.

    You have been posting some great projects and I love this cute slimline card .. .. great papers and the sentiment is perfect alongside.

    I hope you had a good Christmas and wish you a rather belated happy 2022.

    Love Jules xx

  5. Such a fun card, Liz--love the design & papers! So grateful you helped me get rid of the spam follower!

  6. Hi, Liz...
    Thank you for the helpful info on blocking Spam followers. I get the occasional troublesome spam poster, but I have not noticed that they have become followers.
    I am visiting from NBUS and was happy to see you entry was close by one of mine...gave me a good excuse to come over and say hello. :)
    Love your fun nautical card. What a great design. Does it fit in a standard envelope? Wouldn't have to be a perfect fit and one can always construct an envelope of the right dimensions. I really like that the circle feature gives you some extra room for your focal image and sentiment. Lovely card.
    Thank you for sharing!!

    1. My card fits perfectly into a standard 6” x 4” envelope. The base card was an off cut of a piece of UK A4 card folded in half. xx

  7. Very cool! Such perfect papers. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon.

  11. What a beautiful card, love the fold and also the way you did the inside too Liz x. Thanks for sharing the information about blocking too Liz x.

  12. Lovely crd Liz...much needed for the males we have to make for.x

  13. Thanks for sharing the tip to block someone. Your card is another unique design. I love that it opens with a design that mimics the front of the card. The papers are so pretty.

  14. That's a lovely card Liz, the yacht was the perfect choice for that slimline tent fold xx

  15. You always create lovely shaped cards. This one isn't an exception for sure! Love the design and colours combo, as well the inside!

  16. This is a really wonderful and masculine card Liz, love the design. Thanks for letting us know about the spam followers. I will have to take time to go and look them up.

  17. Hi Liz, what a perfect masculine card you've made there! Love the shape, and what a good idea for using up left-over cardstock, and the die is fab. I very often think to myself I should get some dies that I can use as a focal point on cards, rather than as embellishments.

    Thanks for the kind comment as well about my 'arty' pictures - I'd had a fold-down light box tent thing for ages but this new lit box is a real revelation! No windowsills and searching for light anymore but it also folds down and is portable! Am well impressed!

    Hope you have a good weekend,

  18. Love the sea-theme; does remind me that there is something like that while we are asked to stay home for such a long time.... Enjoy the weelkend; make it a good one!

  19. Fabulous card for any male Liz, love the fold of this one.
    Many thanks for the tip on blocking, I’ll take a look at that.

  21. This is a unique fold/design. What a great idea for the left-over strips of card! Love the nautical theme too!

  22. I love this card Liz and such a clever design using up some strips of papers and the outside and inside matted circles in line with one another works brilliantly, also such a sweet little yacht on the front one and a great sentiment inside. x

  23. Thanks for much for telling us how to block a spam follower. I had no clue on how to do that! Now I do! I am so in love with this card Liz, right now I need some "summer" in my life. lol This is such a fun beach card, the yacht die is so cool, love the papers you used and the big scallop circle that just draws the eye right in. So this is slimline tented card then, love it better tented! Hugs, Brenda
