Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is created by Monique Trappeniers. She shows us how to create a Six Fold Card. I used the technique to create a sample for today’s Whiff of Joy Challenge, which is to use Charms or Bling. Since I love Bling, I went with Bling.
I started by stamping Henry with Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The image was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (Henry: E30, E31, E33, E00, E93, E95 Heart: YG21, YG23, YG17 Ground: W3, W5, W7 Sky: B0000, B000). The circle was adhered to a piece of brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lacy Circle Nestabilities die. The edges of the image circle were paper pierced.
The card base was created out of textured Espresso cardstock and decorated with Echo Park Victoria Garden Patterned Paper. The card base measures 4″ square when folded. I cut a 3 3/4″ square of white cardstock and a 3 1/2″ square of patterned paper. Pieces of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered to the top left and bottom right of the card front and brown Organdy ribbon was used to tie the card shut. The image layer was adhered to one part of the card front with dimensionals.
A sentiment from Elisabeth Bell Accessories and Sentiments was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The center was colored with Copic Marker B0000 and the sentiment was adhered to the lower left of the image circle.
When you open the diagonal panels, you will find two horizontal strips that were also lined with Victoria Gardens paper. You fold those layers down…
to unveil the inside panel of the card. The front horizontal strip has two little gatefold doors that can be unfolded as well.
Here is a video for the visual learner:
