My name is Lyneen and I am a CRAFT HOARDER and I admit it. When I saw that I had a chance to be a guest designer for Craft Hoarders I knew I was a perfect candidate! It is time to use some of those stored items!
This week #9 Challenge is "Fold It". Here is the information join the challenge:
Use some sort of "fun fold" on your project. You can make a fun fold card, a pop-up card, an explosion box, or other type of project that makes use of folded cardstock or paper. You can share some folding techniques that are perfect for scrapbook layouts or mixed media pieces. Create a mini album with a folded binding. Fold some ribbon to make pleats. De-hoard those supplies and show us your folds....paper folds that is!
Today I have a Trifold Gift Card to share using my beautiful stash of Graphic 45 French Country papers that have been saving it for who knows what, so here I am using it!
The base of the card is 12 x6 and scored at 4 and 8 inches. The third panel was folded up just shy of the score line (see above). Paper from the Graphic 45 French Country 6x6 Pad was cut to fit each of the inside panels.
Using scraps add strips to the left side of the first panel. Fussy cut the sunflowers from the Graphic 45 French Country Post Card Paper. Add Stickles to the petals of the flowers.
The panel image is from another Graphic 45 French Country Post Card Paper. Cut stamps images from additional Post Card Paper images.
The third panel has a couple of the Graphic 45 French Country Post stickers ( the bee and Bon-Jour), The pocket on the third panel contains some tags from the Graphic 45 French Country Tags and Pockets to write messages.
Here you see all three panels together. Along the top is a lace sticker from the Graphic 45 French Country Stickers.
THE FINISHED TRIFOLD CARD!
The front of the card background is the pear postcard from Graphic 45 French Country Postcard Paper. The rooster was fussy cut from Postcard Paper and the sentiment tags are from the Graphic 45 French Country Tags and Pockets, they are adhered to the card with pop dots! The front is finished with Memory Box Pearl Sticker, flowers and vintage silk ribbon!.
When the front of the card is opened the first panel and the back of the third panel is exposed. The back of the third panel is covered with Graphic 45 French Country paper and a medallion from the Tags and Pockets. A little Stickles was added to the petals of the flowers!
