Sunny Challenge No. 46

June 24, 2012

We had so much fun making Fancy Fold cards a couple of weeks ago that Gwen has given us the opportunity to make another one this week.  A few weeks ago Lee Conrey shared a tutorial on making Z-Fold cards at Stamping 411.  I can thoroughly recommend this tutorial as being really easy to follow.

I started with Whisper White card stock which I partially embossed on the inside/back of the card using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.  I also embossed a separate piece of Whisper White card stock using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, attached it to Early Expresso card stock and then to the front of the card.  The embossing lines up and frames the central image panel.  I cut Real Red cardstock using the largest square scallop on the Scallop Squares Duo DieI stamped the largest flower from the Vintage Vogue stamp set using Red ink onto Whisper White card stock twice .   I masked the flowers and stamped over the top using the leaves and the foliage stamp using Lucky Limeade ink.  I stamped three of the small flowers from the Vintage Vogue stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card stock using Real Red ink which I had stamped off once first.  I stamped one of the large flowers onto Whisper White card stock using Real Red ink.  I cut each flower out and attached two of the small flowers on top of the stamped flowers.   I stamped four of the single leaf images onto Whisper White card stock using Lucky Limeade ink and cut them out.  I attached the leaves behind the large flower already cut out and then attached the last small flower to the centre of the large flower.  This flower is attached to the Whisper White card stock over the stamped images using dimensionals.  I attached large Basic Rhinestones to the centres of all three flowers.  I cut the numbers using a non-Stampin’ Up! die from Real Red card stock and attached them in the top right hand corner.

Inside the card I attached Whisper White card stock which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder to Early Expresso card stock which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Border PunchI stamped “happy birthday wishes” using Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock and attached it to the centre of another Scallop Square cut from Real Red card stock using the Scallop Squares Duo Die.   I attached the greeting piece on the inside of the card making sure that it lined up with the Scallop Square on the front of the card.

I love this fold.  I can see lots of uses for it.  This particular card is for my Aunty who very recently celebrated her 70th birthday.  Happy Birthday Aunty Bev.

Ok so now is the time to visit Gwen and Vicky and  to get some more inspiration.  Once you have created your card, scrap page or 3d item, pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  I can’t wait to see what Fancy Fold you use.

Bye for now, Kris.
