couture Creations 2

Christmas in July
Tri fold card
by Sue Smyth 

Hi all
Today I am sharing a Christmas in July project. I love 
a Tri-fold card as it gives you more room to use
 all of your Couture Creations
dies and papers. 

When you untie the seam binding, the card
folds out to reveal the inside.

I have die cut the Joy die in two colours and 
covered with glitter, see the little how to below.

Inside you can layer over top several images and
fussy cut shapes.

The black and white vintage images are just perfect for
a Tri-fold card

You might not think that blue and white and red and green 
would go together but as you can see they look wonderful
and are a nice contrast, I have added red 2mm Rhinestones 
over the wreath for dimension.

The Amaryliss die has slots in it that are perfect 
for threading seam binding through for 
a soft look.

Add the tiny pearls in your pack one at a time
for a lovely border 

I have snipped the paper lace at the fold 
to allow it to fold up with out a drama.

Cut white cardstock using the panels as a guide to make 
a fold out card.

Trim out the panels you want, wipe 
dimensional magic over the edges and 
dip into white glitter.

Die cut Joy in white cardstock.

Use the letter shapes to die cut
out the J and Y only.

 Now die cut the O in a blue cardstock.
Layer over top with 3 D foam tape.
I have covered the whole thing in white glitter too.
