Eastern Beauty Tri-fold

Hello Stampers!

Today I have a very cool tri-fold card in Berry Burst using one of my favorite sets…Eastern Beauty.

I have really liked this bundle since it’s early release. Berry Burst is such an elegant color for me. The Garden Trellis Embossing Folder is so versatile! I think you’ll be seeing it a lot on my cards.  Those little sparkles of gold are Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Here’s the card closed…you can see that the medallion is keeping the left flap closed.

Here I’ve pulled the front panel out from the medallion and it is starting to open the card.

This photo shows the card fully opened. Of course I had to use the Happy Birthday Thinlit (another winner in my book!).

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Eastern Beauty

Ink – Berry Burst

Paper – Berry Burst, Black, Whisper White

Accessories – Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, Happy Birthday Thinlit, Metallic Enamel Shapes

 

The photos just don’t do justice to this card. I’m so pleased with the way it turned out. Hope you like it too!

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!    Donna

Flourishing Half Fold Card

Hello Stampers! Here we are at Friday already. Today I have a Half Fold card for you. It’s quite easy but makes such a cute card.

It looks like a normal card except for that horizontal “line” in the middle of the card.

You only open half of the card. It can stand up for the recipient to display.

I took an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. Turned it sideways, starting from the top of the fold cut down 2 1/8″. I then cut across the 5 1/2″ side to remove the top portion. I then added some DSP to each visible piece. I used Layering Squares Framelits to make the Rich Razzleberry square with the flower from Flourishing Phrases stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The large pearl adds a little pizzaz.

Then I decided to try some retired DSP…

Same idea but a different center piece and moved to the right a bit.

A very soft subtle card…might be good for a sympathy card. There is enough room on the front where I can put a banner or label.  Three Metallic Enamel Shapes add a bit of bling.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used (for main card not the blue one):

Stamp Set – Flourishing Phrases

Ink – Rich Razzleberry

Paper – Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Blooms and Bliss DSP

Accessories – Layering Squares Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Metallic Enamel Shapes

 

Try this card out. It’s quite simple but is a bit unusual. These are great cards to make in mass.

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with another Easter Card.

Happy Stamping!
