Today’s fun fold card is another one we made at last month’s team training. It’s a 5″ square card and features the cute Turtle Friends Bundle on page 56 of the Annual Catalogue.
The front of the card has been scored in half and has two panels that have been dry embossed with the Checks Embossing Folder on page 154 and then matted with Coastal Cabana.
Isn’t Mr Turtle cute? He has been stamped twice – once on Soft Sea Foam and once on Granny Apple Green. This bundle has a coordinating punch which we used on the Soft Sea Foam image. Did you notice his ‘glossy’ shell? After stamping the outline image we stamped his ‘shell’ inside the image then applied Shimmery Crystal Effects from page 128 to give his shell a 3D look and make is nice and glossy. NB: the Shimmery Crystal Effects takes a bit of time to dry so you may want to do this part of the card first.
The card front folds back and tucks in behind the baby turtles ‘shell’ on the inside of the card. The front stamped panel has only been partially adhered to the card to allow the front of the card to fold back. The mat has been die cut using the new Scalloped Contours dies on page 158. These dies are part of the Color and Contour Bundle on page 98.
This bundle will be a great one to use for all ages and has a number of additional stamps to create fun cards.
Until next time …
