I’m back to Convention swaps today
A final special swap that I took part in, was a Fancy Folds swap. There were just ten of us in the group and we each made a different style of Fancy Fold card. I opted to do a shadowbox card.
This particular one is an A5 size landscape, that folds flat for posting.
Stamps: Christmas Lodge (W123767 or C123769)
Card: Cherry Cobbler (121681), Old Olive (106576), Very Vanilla (106550), Vellum (106584)
Ink: Old Olive (126953), Versamark (102283)
DSP: Be of Good Cheer (126896)
Punches: Boho Blossoms (119858)
Dies: Labels Collection Framelits (125598)
Other: Metallic Brads (119741), Gold EP (109129)
A Labels Collection framelits aperture was die cut from the centre of the top Cherry Cobbler layer. Versamark ink was used to stamp the individual branches from the Christmas Lodge set into the top corners of the card front and then heat embossed with Gold EP. The Christmas tree image from the same set was stamped onto a Very Vanilla insert with Old Olive ink. This was adhered direct to the background layer. A frame was die cut from Old Olive card using the Labels Collection framelits again. After stamping the narrower sentiment onto a strip of Vellum Card with Versamark ink and heat embossing it with Gold EP, it and the frame were secured to the card front with Gold Brads through small Boho Blossoms punched from Cherry Cobbler card. Strips of the Be of Good Cheer DSP were adhered to the outer edges of the card front.
As a message panel for the back of the card, another Label was die cut from Very Vanilla card, stamped with the wider sentiment in Old Olive ink and adhered direct. More strips of the Be of Good Cheer DSP were adhered to the outer edges of the card back.
I’ll be back soon with the swaps I got in return and we’ll be making variations of some of the fancy fold cards when we start our new card making classes in the new year (both face-to-face and online), so please keep a lookout for news of the classes if you like the look of them.
