It’s time for a new Creative Creases challenge. Firstly, thanks to all those who participated in the last challenge! If you haven’t played in the challenge yet, I hope I can inspire you to join the challenge that’s starting today!

Once again, you have inspired my card for you today! I saw Liz Cavill’s three-panel card in our gallery and she had a link to Lesley’s tutorial, which has a wonderful video and instructions HERE. For my card today, I used my favorite designer paper from the annual catalog, Texture Chic, and paired it with the coordinating Season of Chic and Seaside Bay bundles.

My Card Today

Today’s project is a Three Panel card; so easy to make and a wonderful way to use designer paper – my kind of card! Since I changed the sizes of the panels that Lesley used a bit, her tutorial can still help you see how it looks. Then, I used Texture Chic designer paper and paired it with the coordinating Season of Chic and Seaside Bay bundles.

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, to create the card base, I cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″ and scored it at 1,” 2,” 3,” and 4,” on the 8-1/4″ side. Then, on the 5-1/2″ side with the score lines at the top, I measured down 3/4″ from the top edge and cut all the way to the 3″ score line. After that, I measured down to the 1 1/2″ mark and cut only to the 1″ score line. Finally, I cut on the diagonal from the 3″ cut to the 4″ score line and the 1″ cut to the 2″ score line.
  • Then, after I made the card base, I cut panels as follows:
    • Back Panel: Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 4″ and DSP: 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
    • Middle Panel: Cardstock: 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ and DSP: 4-5/8″ x #-3/8″
    • Top Panel: Cardstock: 4″ x 3″ and DSP: 3-7/8″ x 2-7/8″

Now, the FUN part!

  • Top Panel: After cutting and adhering the cardstock and DSP to the card base, then I cut the Distressed Gold paper with the die from Seaside Bay. After that, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the stitched circle die. Then, I punched out Crumb Cake cardstock with the 2″ Circle Punch and centered the negative cardstock to punch the Decorative Circle Punch. Finally, after gluing the out punch piece down, I started building the rest with dimensionals, as shown.
  • Middle Panel: After adhering the panel to the card base, then I stamped the sentiment from Seaside Bay, cropped it out with the small stitched square die, and layered it onto Crumb Cake cardstock. After that, I stamped the clamshell with Crumb Cake ink and cropped it out. Then, I stamped the pearl, covered it with a small piece of packing tape (which adds just the right amount of gloss that a pretty pearl would have), and cropped it out with the coordinating die. Also, I added a shell from Seaside Bay that was lightly sponged with CC ink and added a few of the pearl embellishments.
  • Back Panel: Finally, I added the cardstock and DSP panel, and added a white panel for a personal message, making sure that it wouldn’t be seen when the card was completely closed. Although the card is meant to be displayed open, I thought it was worth the extra effort to make sure it didn’t show. Then, I stamped the shell from Season of Chic with CC and Petal Pink and cropped it out with the coordinating die. After that, I cut and colored a couple of the small shells and added a few more pearls for good measure.

So, this is a template of the card base…
