Today, I have a special card that uses both old and new! It's exciting to have a new Holiday catalog coming soon, but we can't forget the annual catalog. My card uses the new Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Petal Palette stamp set. This stamp was first seen in the Occasions catalog, but it carried over to page 119 of the annual. You can order it here in my online store. Here's the card.
This is the front of the card, but here's another view.
I first saw this fold from Patty Bennett and Cindee Wilkinson. I will say that it uses a lot of paper, but it is special.
Start with a card base of Shaded Spruce that is 4 1/4 x 11. Fold at 5 1/2 just as you would do for a regular card. You'll need another piece of Shaded Spruce that is 4 x 10 1/4. For this piece, score at 2 1/2 and 5.
Now you will new some pieces in Crumb Cake. The first is 3 3/4 x 5 and then you will need 2 pieces that measure 2 1/4 x 3 3/4. Run all three of these pieces through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. This will be available on September 5th. Be careful with placement in the folder. I wanted to try to make it as symetrical as possible. I also tried to make all of the pieces match as far as the design goes.
For the second piece of Shaded Spruce, use the Bone Folder to crease the lines in a mountain fold. Add the pieces of embossed Crumb Cake to this piece. Take the largest section of this piece and mount it to the front of the card. Center it all around.
Using the Petals & More Thinlits, cut a branch from Shaded Spruce. Stamp three of the single flowers in Lovely Lipstick on a scrap of Whisper White. Cut out with the thinlits. You'll also need to stamp the bird using Memento Black on Whisper White. Color with Blends. I used Light and Dark Lovely Lipstick and Light and Dark Crumb Cake. Cut this with the thinlits. Glue the branch. Add the flowers and bird with dimensionals.
For the small flap in the front, cut the label from the Stitched Labels Framelits in Shaded Spruce. The saying is from the Petal Palette stamp set. Stamp in Versamark, cover in Gold Emboss Powder and heat set. Add this to the panel. Notice that part of this will go above the fold. Make sure that you do not have adhesive on that part.
Stamp the three flower stamp in Memento Black on white. Color with Blends using Light and Dark Shaded Spruce and Light and Dark Lovely Lipstick. Cut out with the Petals & More Framelits. Find Blends here.
Add a gold bow with a glue dot. OK, that ribbon is retired, but it looked so good and I need to use it up. Please forgive me!
For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set stamped in Shaded Spruce. Add the flower cluster in Memento Black and color with Blends as on the front.
I think this is a very special card for someone special. We'll be making this in my class this week. Let me just say that you will love the new Tin Tile embossing folder. I think everyone will love it. I wouldn't wait long to order it!
