Hello to all my blogging friends I'm back with the tutorial I promised you.
This is NOT my original design for the fold on the card I believe you can find the original on Split Coast Stampers or over at Technique Junkies Blog. I did design and decorate this finished product however, and this is what I am making the tutorial on. It is only right to give credit where credit is due.
1 piece of So Saffron Card Stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
2 pieces of card stock 1 in Always Artichoke and 1 in So Saffron Designer Series Paper (DSP) -5 1/4 x 1 7/8
2 pieces of card stock 1 in Marina Mist and 1 in So Saffron DSP - 5 x 1 5/8
1 piece of Whisper White Card Stock - 2 7/8 x 5/8
1 piece of Always Artichoke Card Stock - 3 7/8 x 6/8
1 piece of So Saffron DSP - 4 x 5/8
1 piece of Marina Mist Card Stock 4 1/2 x 1 7/8
1 piece of scrap So Saffron to stamp 2 Hummingbirds
SU Elements of Style Stamp Set
1 Corduroy button (I said 3 but didn't use 2)
1/6 sponge dipped in Pacific Point Classic Ink to color all edges of DSP and Card Stock
2 small Rhinestones
So Saffron, Marina Mist and Always Artichoke Markers to color Hummingbirds
Score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 Mountain /Valley style use the bone folder to smooth edges.
Prepare cut card stock and DSP by inking the edges and taping the layers together for the outside and inside folds. Use VersaMark to stamp the inside Marina Mist panel with the scroll stamp of the Elements of Style Stamp Set and set aside before attaching it to the DSP.
Now for the out side panel
Attach assembled panel to the front panel. Only use glue dots to secure the right half of the panel. Place this piece about half way down the outside panel or where ever you would like.
Color 2 Hummingbirds in using the So Saffron, Marina Mist and Always Artichoke Markers. Huff to rehydrate markers prior to stamping. Cut them out leaving a small ring of So Saffron around each bird. Attach one Rhinestone to the one eye of the birds each. Attach one bird to the front panel and one to the center panel.
That should do it. The fun thing about making this style card is that you can do almost anything to decorate it.
Here are the original posts that I said I would show you all how I made this card style from.
Well that is it for me for this day. I'm going to clean up the dinner dishes and snuggle with my honey.
It's your turn to go create something fun.
