Happy Sunday morning to everyone! I don't often do trifold type cards but I wanted to use the smallest dies in the Cut, Fold, Tuck die templates and I thought this would be a really fun way to showcase them! I am always asked the question about the small dies in any of the sets, "what do I do with them?" The Cut, Fold, Tuck dies are strong enough to be focal points on their own as they are interesting and especially when you pare them with double sided papers or micro beads. For this card I used the Coordinations brand card that is black on one side and red on the other. I thought it would be more interesting to mix the sizes and shapes and prominent colours a bit. I cut two of each of them, one with the black card facing upwards and one with the red side up. I folded and tucked all the pieces. Next I made my base card by scoring an A4 size of the taupe card from our neutrals pack in three equal sections and cutting the top at a diagonal. I stamped the front panel with my sentiment in the lower corner. I used my scoreboard to create a lined embossed background for interest. Using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue, I attached all my folded pieces to the top edge of the card to finish it off. Sorry no bow today! LOL However, with a sentiment change, wouldn't this make a great card for a guy or even a teenager (they are always so difficult, aren't they!).
Here is a pic of it laying flat, you can see the embossed front better in this one too. I stopped and started the score lines around the sentiment and made a few horizontal score lines on the bottom of the card too.
It's Sunday so it is time for the weekly comment game winners. This week there weren't any extra qualifying posts so just three names were drawn. The winners are:
