I just discovered this triple fold card from Ellen Woodbridge and had to give it a try. For this project I was asked to create a card for a 50th birthday for someone spiritual who loves flowers, soft green, and pinks.
TRIPLE FOLD CARD
This fold is my new favourite because I loved hiding little details within the folds waiting to be discovered. The Texture Chic DSP perfectly fit the colour palette and has a nostalgic, vintage feel to it.
The spiritual aspect had me stumped for a while but then I looked at the netting die and decided I could cut it into a cross. So I die-cut the shape in Basic White and then trimmed away until I had the cross shape. The slightly askew nature of the die-cut piece was maintained by not making it too uniform. Flowers were layered and a nest of a single strand of linen thread onto 1 side so the cross is visible in the background.
FLORAL CROSS TRIPLE FOLD CARD EXTRA DETAILS
First, I used the retired Playful Alphabet Dies for the number 50 and cut the numbers from the Distressed Gold Specialty paper in the suite.
Secondly, I stamped the solid oak leaves in Craft White Ink and stamped the detailed oak leaf over the top in Soft Succulent. I love the softness and vintage look this gives the leaves. I then added a die cut leaf in the distressed gold paper and gold embossed the sentiment on Basic White.
Tucked inside the first fold is another bunch of die cut flowers and linen thread. Obviously, I’ve split the linen thread to a single strand for this delicate look. I was careful to keep the layers as flat as possible, so the card still folds up and remains relatively flat.
Finally, a flower stamped in Petal Pink with gold embossed details for the triple fold card inner.
I’m using this same triple fold for my Tutorial Bundle contribution for August so be sure to check that out to get all the measurements.
I hope you enjoyed my post; I’d love to hear from you if you wish to leave a comment.
Have a wonderful and creative day!
