Hello again! I’m back with another card I’ve showcased this morning on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog using the Snow Family clear stamp set! You know me and fun folds… I’m always on the look-out to try a new one! I saw this one in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter not too awfully long ago, called a triple fold card with a belly band, and the tutorial can be found HERE. I had actually found the same fold (but reversed) on the Stempeleinmaleins blog this past Summer HERE which I planned to try at some point. But either way, this fold is super fun and easy, and sure packs a punch! ;)
I created the card base from teal cardstock and adhered two coordinating patterned paper layers on the folded panels. I created a layered belly band embellished with two snowflake brads to keep the card closed when it’s finished.
I stamped Poppa Snowman on the front left panel, then stamped him again on white cardstock which I colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and paper pieced on the left panel. I stamped the sentiment and added a snowflake brad with collage medium. I took the prongs off the brad since I didn’t want them to show through on the other side.
I embellished the inside panel with a piece of the snowflake patterned paper, a stamped and die cut sentiment and a narrow strip of the teal cardstock.
And one more look… I love this fold so much that I have another base cut and folded and ready to turn into a project, lol, so stay tuned! ;)
