Heavens to murgatroid not another post and on the same day! lol - I had a request from one of my regular customers to do more by way of fancy folds, so I've been indulging myself today and had a play just for the sake of playing! As it is Valentine's Day today, I dug out some old stamps and gave them an airing and here is the result!
I stamped and punched loads of little hearts with the heart to heart punch. I punched out glimmer paper ones too. The larger hearts were stamped and handcut in pairs so I could sandwich them between the cascade folds for a neater finish. The finished size of the card is 5" x 3 3/4", smaller than the norm, but the largest heart at the back from the new "You are Loved" stamp set in the Spring Mini overhangs quite a bit. It will still fit into our Stampin' Up! envelops easily.
At the back of the cascading mechanism, I've attached a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 7 1/2" x 5" folded in half as the card base. I cut a piece of Riding Hood Red 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" to add a bit of stiffness to the card and white embossed a sentiment on it.
I clear embossed the front panels only of the cascading mechanism, and the rest of the cardstock was just stamped in Riding Hood Red with the large swirly motif from Creative Elements. To complete the card, I used the Beautiful Wings embosslits dies and adhered them with glue dots on the front panels and added faux pearls.
Must go and do some work now. Got a monthly meeting to prep for tomorrow. I only just found out that it is half term in our part of England - so have a great week everyone - wish I had that luxury!
