Envelope Fold Card

I saw these cards on splitcoast a little while ago and made one for my friends daughter Paige. I copied the Alice in wonderland theme that Melissa Banbury had done for the tutorial on splitcoast, but forgot to take a photo of that card : / I was really happy with it too.

This card was for my cousin, so I thought bright colours on black & white would work for that job. 
Stamp sets: Balloon Celebration, Balloon Builders & Endless Birthday Wishes
Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Melon Mambo & Go Wild dsp
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Strawberry Slush, Melon Mambo, White Craft & Black Memento
Punches: Balloon Bouquet, Circle & Scallop Circle
Extras: Silver Metallic Thread

Front panel tucks into the scallop circle that is attached with dimensionals on one side only.

Whole card opened.

All stamping on the white panel has been stamped off to soften/lighten.

I've attached the silver thread to the back of the balloons (after wrapping around the little triangle bit), then pulled all the threads together, tied a bow around it and used sticky tape to secure the ends on the other side of the card.

Stamp set: Balloon Celebration
Card stock: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Pool Party & Subtles dsp
Ink: So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist & Craft White
Punches: Balloon Bouquet, Circle & Scallop Circle

Not sure if you can see from the photo, but I've stamped white clouds on the background dsp and dandelions on the Pool Party frame.


This next card for another friends daughter Melinda, who happened to be performing in the local show of "The Little Mermaid". Melinda's character was Alana, one of the sisters (in purple). So...I asked my daughter Jayda to draw the characters for the card. She has drawn them with a black fine liner (after a grey lead sketch) then coloured them in with pencils.

This was a modified experiment, to try and fit the card around the Home and Hearth Thinlit (window frame), to create the scene outside as view from the window... but it wasn't easy and it didn't turn out as I planned... so this is the only picture I took of this card.

Up date; I found the photos I had taken of the Alice in Wonderland themed card,- silly me...I had them in a different folder on my phone (don't you hate when your memory fills up, then it switches to SD card and forget where the photos are : )

I've slightly changed the measurements in this template to suit me, but they are pretty much the same as the ones Melissa uses on splitcoast.
