Creating Through The Catalogue | Seaside Notions | Tri-Fold fancy fold card

5 September 2020

 Hi everyone, today I have created a tri-fold card using the Seaside Notions stamp set which we are up to with creating through the catalogue (pg 36 of the Annual Catalogue). I also combined this card with the Whale Done stamp set & DSP as they just were perfect for each other.

I think these two sets go so nicely together to create a beautiful under water scene. Let me know in the comments what you think!

Cut an A4 piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock into this size: 14.9 x 29.7cm

Then place the cardstock onto the Simply Scoring Tool landscape. Score at 10.5cm, 18cm & 25.5cm.

Now fold the score lines where the largest piece is the base of the card, fold the smallest fold towards the back piece, the middle fold is to fold inwards away from the base & the last fold towards the base. 

Now cut DSP:

One piece     14.4cm x 10cm
One piece     14.4cm x 7cm
Two pieces    14.4cm x 3.5cm

Cut one piece of Whisper White cardstock 14.4cm x 7cm

You can change the Whisper White piece to be the larger size if you wish. You can also add extra DSP on the back of the card like I did, just cut the same amount again. 

I then stamped three seahorse images from the Seaside notions stamp set and coloured in with the Stampin' Blend markers. I also fussy cut out a turtle, crab, & jellyfish from the Whale of a Time DSP and added them all to the card in various positions. 

I then used Stampin' Write markers to colour the shell stamp from Seaside notions in two colours and stamped onto the white cardstock. I also stamped some sand there too in Sahara Sand ink, with a little seahorse from Whale of a Time beside the shell. 

You can add the images where you feel looks good. I kept closing the card to see what you are able to see when the recipient of the card first sees it. 

I also cut the sentiment die cut from the Painted Poppies die set to add more interest. 

I hope you like this card and basic tutorial, if you would like a YouTube video to be created to demonstrate how to make this card, let me know in the comments.
