At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is More Than One Fold.We have the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps,Eureka Stamps and Bunny Zoe’s Crafts as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.
I’ve decided to revamp an old favourite,a twist on a Joy Fold Card,to go with this beautiful Wreath with Bird by Eureka Stamps.As soon as I saw it I knew I didn’t want to just colour it.I wanted to add some dimension too.Once coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers I then cut and coloured a layer consisting of the bow loops including the little bird,which I chose to turn into a Robin.Next I added the knot as in the original image it appears that the bird is nestled in just behind.The berries are Liquid Pearls.To create the card base I cut away roughly half of the front using a Grand Nestabilities Die and made a smaller card with a matching Nestabilities Die.Normally I would’ve plonked (technical term!) the smaller folded piece in the middle but I had the idea of securing the flap into place a button so being butted up to the far right edge seemed the better option.
Here is a pic to show how it works opened up :
All edges of card and paper have been Distress inked and the sentiment stamped.Sadly the lovely lady who made it is no longer trading 😦 To complete the look some ribbon,a button,jute twine and a couple of sprigs cut from my new Cheery Lynn Die.Have to admit this is the first one I’ve bought (yeah,I know) but will definitely be tempted to buy some more 🙂
