Took a Day Off!

Hey everyone, I took a day off yesterday to spend a day with a good friend, whom I haven't really seen for a very long time. To which we both love Ikea and we just had to stop in and take a look around. I was actually looking for a container that I saw in the mini catalogue and would you believe it they had sold out of it two weeks before I got their as it was a discontinued item. Arrrgggh, darn thing!

So I digress, and could further lament, but I shan't. I promised some friends that I would put this trifold card on my blog yesterday, sorry for the delay, but I have it now and therefore a tutorial will follow.

This was an entry into a SDC #60 on our Sudsol site (demonstrators click on the link to get a free two week trial) and let me tell you, you better have some coffee before you start as it is a little tricky.


  1. First, cut a piece of card stock to 101/2" x 51/2". In landscape orientation, score in from the left at 13/4" and at 31/2". Then score in from the right at 13/4" and at 31/2".
  2. Now make a CUT at 11/2" down from the top edge and 11/2" up from the bottome edge and your cut line will run Only from the first score mark, to the last score mark. You do this with a Hobby Blade and a straightedge.
  3. Fold parts back and forward to look like the picture I posted.
  4. Fold the card back to lie flat, and start embellishing panels. Choose any DSP, I used Thoroughly Modern. Then I used the 'Great Friends' stamp set to decorate the inside and back panel.
  5. The front panel I used the 'Pretties Kit' in bulk, 'Button Latte' in bulk and attached using mini dots. I would suggest when decorating the flower, hold it up with a pencil and spray it with glue spray. Then add the 'Fine Cosmos' in Turquoise and attach.
  6. I used our 'Butterfly' Punch to add the little details on the inside.
7. Measure the panels who want to layer then subtract 1/8" for the layers.

That's it for that card. I think it's very pretty myself.

Now the next card I made was for a Chat & Challenge entry that I did yesterday on our Sudsol website. As you can see it is the Halloween Card.

  1. Take your standard card base and fold in half. I used our Pumkin Pie CS, then for the next layer I used Black CS. Cut that layer 4 x 51/4".
  2. Take a piece of Cast-A-Spell DSP for the third layer at these dimensions 3" x 5" and add a couple of our silver brads with the 3/16" punch. Attach all to the card base but make sure you leave a spot in the middle of the DSP to allow for the pumpkin to be set in.
  3. Punch 3 large oval Pumpkin Pie DSP then sponge them with Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin Ink. Attach together with your snail adhesive.
  4. Punch with the 'Modern Label' punch Garden Green CS to make them stem, add the hemp tie knot. Insert finished pumpkin behind the DSP then attach behind the stem a stampin dimensional.
  5. If you want to use glitter, design around the pumpkin with our 2-way glue pen and dazzling diamonds.
Your done!

You can order supplies at my 24/7 shop. Enjoy!
