I want to welcome everyone to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Fancy Fold Blog Hop. (Fancy Fold = anything other than a "normal" card.) This blog hop will run for FOUR days. That's right- you'll have plenty of time to check out all the great creations by the SNS Design Team.
If you've arrived from their blog than you are in the right place. If not, I would start there to make sure you have all the details for this hop. There are 3 prizes hidden on 3 different mystery designer blogs so make sure you leave a comment on everyone's blogs. Winners will be announced on January 21st on the SNS blog so make sure you check back there to see if you won.
Now grab yourself a tasty beverage/snack and let's go....
My "fancy fold" is a Tri-Shutter card. This was my first time making this fold and it was pretty easy. I followed the instructions from a Split Coast Stampers video. There's also a great tutorial on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Tips & Techniques section. So, for the base of the card you can go to either site. However, there is a slight difference in the center part of the card between the two. (Mine doesn't have the 6" score that the SNS site makes.)
For the front center part of the card, use a piece of Super Adhesive sheet approximately 2 1/2" by slightly less than 4". Remove protective layer and sprinkle Reflection Velvet Glitter all over and burnish into sheet. Stamp sentiment/hearts, which I used from the Happy Hearts stamp set, with Versamark and emboss with Cherry embossing powder. Cut a piece of red CS 1/8" smaller than glitter sheet and the embossed CS about 1/16" smaller.
Adhere all pieces together and add to front of card. Trim two different pieces of pattern paper (I used Echo Park - Yours Truly) and adhere to inside center and far right side of card.
Next, stamp square sentiments onto white CS with Versamark and emboss with Cherry and Black Detail embossing powder. Trim to 1 1/4" by 1 1/4". Cut two pieces of black CS and one piece of red CS 1/16" bigger. Adhere to embossed pieces and than to far right side of card.
For remaining sections of the card, cut red CS 1/16" smaller than each section. Trim pattern paper 1/16" smaller than red CS. Adhere all pieces to card except the bottom center (with ribbon).
Adhere black ribbon and bow to bottom, center section and than add to card.
Punch five small hearts from super adhesive sheet and add Reflection and Fire Engine Red glitters to hearts. Add 3 hearts to top section of card and 2 to lower section (with ribbon) with pop dots.
Here's another view with the card completely opened....
