Hi friends! I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls this week and it happens to be our Wild Card week. I can choose any challenge! I settled on making a tri-fold card.
My friend, Cheryl, sent me a tri-fold card and I thought it was so clever and that is where I got the idea for this challenge. My card is very much inspired by hers.
Here is the card closed. I created the base by cutting a piece of fog card stock to 6" x 10.5" and scoring at 3.5" and 7". This gives you the tri-fold card. I then chose this Fly By stamp set and stamped, colored, and die cut the two flowers and the butterfly. (I was very inspired by the Ukrainian colors when coloring the images with copic markers.) Next, I die cut the larger window on the front panel, folded the card back up and figured where to die cut the second window.
I used a stencil and Unicorn white ink to stencil the fog card stock. I love how it looks like silver. I took the same two squares dies and taped them together and die cut a white frame to put around the inside window.
On the inside panel, I die cut a decorative panel using an older Spellbinders die and added clouds with a mini cloud stencil and blue ink. I adhered the butterfly to it and stamped the trail and the sentiment (messed that up a bit). Then I adhered the flowers to the middle panel and the front panel. I also die cut the sentiment three times from white card stock and stacked them. To give it some sparkle, I added star dust stickles to the flowers and butterfly and some crystals.
