More than one fold

Morning all!  It’s been a while since I’ve made a morning post!  I actually made this card last night….inspired by Phill’s class….but waited for the morning to take the pics!

Elegant Soiree

To make the card I’ve cut an A3 sheet of card in half lengthways.  I’ve measured along the long side and scored and folded at 14.5cm and 29cm.  I’ve then folded the front flap back on itself to create the front step part of the card.

Wedding Card (2)I’ve matted Baja Breeze card with the Elegant Soiree papers from Stampin’ Up!, using two different patterns to give a contrast.  The image (one of my favourites from Lotv) is matted onto baja breeze too and then 3d’d on to the back fold of the card.  I’ve coloured Whisper White ribbon using a Stampin’ Write marker to get the exact Baja Breeze colour and tied this to the top of the back fold.

I’ve used the scallop trim punch on Baja Breeze CS and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso.  The ‘Congratulations’ sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set.  This is a brilliant set because the sentiments are a good size and include ‘Thank You’, ‘Season’s Greetings’, ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘Thank You’.  Well worth its £16.95 price tag.  Finally I’ve embellished it with some cute little flowers.

So…all in all, quite a simple card to make….but it looks very elegant!

  6. Uhooi,,
    Wow, This card is a nice, sweet and creative,,

  7. Hun I'm popping in from MIM and if you pop over to my blog you can see that I made up this fold using just an A4 sheet of card... using much less card stock.
    You can get a 5 1/4 inch card front from it too. The difference is you don't have the full square fold on the back, you have a smaller tent fold. Check it out and see what you think! :0)
    Love your creation by the way. Your image is lovely. Your colouring perfect. Your backing papers are wonderful. An all round winner.xx
