This week for our journey through colour we are looking at the bright colour of Berry Burst!

One of my friends and down lines, Brenda wanted to learn to make a specific Fancy Fold for her Daughter's birthday so today we had a crafting session together and we made a Triple Flap Fun Fold. I created the card for our Berry Burst Colour Challenge and Brenda made the one for her daughter's upcoming birthday in the colour scheme of the party so we can't show you that but it looks fabulous!

For my card today I have used the Spotlight on Nature Bundle as I thought it was perfect for this card design and then the Dotted Circle 3D Embossing folder cried out to me and said you have to use me too!

For this front panel that is cut into 3 I first used my blending brush with Berry Burst on the paper and blended some ink and put the card through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Dotted Circle 3D folder BUT I debossed it OOOPS! SO instead of redoing it I just brushed over the dots with what ink was left on my blending brush and I liked the effect way better! I cut the panel into 3 to get the triple flaps and backed them on the basic white layers.

A Piece of Berry Burst card was cut at 14 cm x 28cm and then divided into 3 and the 2 sides have a z-fold. On those 4 smaller panels I have added the gorgeous Perennial Lavender DSP.

When adhere the triple panels on fold up your card base and adhere to the one side only, then alternate the middle panel before doing the bottom panel. Making sure you only adhere one half of the panel to the card base so you can open your card!

On the inside of the card I have added a piece of basic white so that you can write your greeting and I have stamped the leaf image and coloured it in with the Dark and Light Lost Lagoon and Light Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blends. The Happy Birthday is from the Online Exclusive Stamp set Magnolia Mood.

For the decoration on the front of the card I have stamped the flower stamp from the Spotlight on Nature and cut it out using the Dies. I coloured the image using the Light and Dark Berry Burst, Dark Bubble Bath, Light and Dark Lost Lagoon and Light Pretty Peacock. I then blended a little Balmy Blue over the image. For the butterfly which I fussy cut out I used Light and Dark Azure Afternoon and Light Balmy Blue. Can you see the Basic Gray pearls I have used on the body of the butterfly?

For the Dear Friend sentiment which I have stamped in Smoky Slate I have cut out with a deckled rectangle die I have popped up on mini dimensionals that I positioned in between the dots of the embossing folder.

To give the whole card stability you have 1 layer of Berry Burst at the back to adhere the whole folded card to. This also helps it stand.

The pearls on the butterfly's body are a lovely touch, Sharon, and carry on the "circular" theme that shows in the embossing and die-cutting. Bubble Bath and Berry Burst look really nice together, and I like the greeny-blues you've added to the colour scheme. It looks like you had a lovely crafty day, creating these gorgeous cards!

Cathy Proctor said...

Love the pearls on the butterfly boy, Shron! Your Triple Flap Fun Fold is triple the crafting fun and I'm sure Brenda's daughter will be delighted with her special card too.

What a wonderful fold, Sharon. I love how you used the Dotted Circle 3D TIEF with the Spotlight on Nature dies to continue the circle theme. Lovely colour selection and the lovely pop of blue for the butterfly!
