I spent most of the weekend cleaning and organizing my stamp room. What a huge job that was! I am so happy to have that finished and behind me now.
So, this morning, I couldn't wait to get into my stamp room and play. I wanted to try a card fold that I haven't done before. I decided on a birthday set, called Happiest of Days to be the focal point of this unique Triple Z card fold.
I started with a 4 1/4" x 11 piece of flirty flamingo as the card base. It is folded in half and the front flap is folded in half again so that the bottom edge is touching the top fold of the card. (or you can score the front flap at 2 3/4")
The inside/outside scored piece of basic grey is cut 9" x 3 1/4"
The whisper white pieces are 2 3/4" x 3"
I scored the basic grey at 3" and 6"
To add color and shimmer to the flowers, I used a Wink of Stella brush in clear and dipped it into drops in ink refills (or you can press the lid of your inkpad into the actual inkpad itself to pick up some color on the lid and dip your brush into it)
I used flirty flamingo and melon mambo for the flower and wild wasabi for the leaves.
I love the soft shimmer that the Wink of Stella clear brush gives the flowers and leaves.
When attaching the basic grey cardstock to the flirty flamingo card base, I centered it on the card so that there was about
1 1/4" inches left at the top and the bottom of the flirty flamingo basecard. Here's a side view.
The top flap is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Its looks perfect on this soft and pretty birthday card.
I finished it off with a few rhinestone jewels, enamel shapes and Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon.
I hope you'll give this unique fold a try. Thanks for stopping by!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
