CARD: Sip, Sip Fancy Fold

Good day everyone!  I've had an amazingly busy week and this is the first I've had to sit down and work on my blog.  I apologize for not having more time to post.

Today, I want to share the swaps I made for OnStage last weekend.  I only made 15 cards, but they were fun to do because I decided to make a fancy fold.  I'm not really sure if this particular fold has a name, I just sort of started playing with the card stock and it came to me.  It's very likely that I'm not the first to do this fold.

For this card, I used 12" x 12" Basic Black card stock, cut to measure 4" x 12".  I then used my Stampin' Trimmer to score at 4" and 8", creating 3 panels.  From there, I took the two outer panels and score diagonally so when folded it would form two triangles as the card opening.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut squares in Crumb Cake, Rose Glimmer Paper, each one size smaller than the last.  The Whisper White square was cut 2 sizes smaller than that of the Rose Glimmer paper.    The Crumb Cake and Glimmer square were then cut in half using the Stampin' Trimmer and adhered to each of the triangle panels using Snail.  On the Whisper White square, I stamped the martini glass image and "Sip Sip" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  On a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped an additional glass, filled in the glass using Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut the image out using the Sip & Celebrate Dies.  This is then popped off the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To hold the card closed, a piece of 1/2"Black Satin Ribbon is cut to 16".  It is fit to be equal around the front and back and then the back is adhered across the centre using Tear & Tape.  Once the back is secured, I flipped it back over and on only one half of the front, the ribbon is attached to the triangle at the folded edge using Tear & Tape.  The stamped Whisper White piece is then adhered over top of the ribbon to only the half of the card front, also using Tear & Tap.  The ribbon is then adhered to the back of that stamped Whisper White that over hangs.  Before tying the card closed, a second square of Whisper White is stamped with the sentiment inside and a tiny strawberry image is added to the inside corner. This is coloured with a Light Cherry Cobbler Blend and then I used the Colour Corrector Blend to lift some of the colour.  I also did this for the strawberry on the front.  Once the inside is in place, the card is tied shut and Basic Rhinestones finish it off.  

I received lots of compliments on this card from those I swapped with, and I hope you enjoy it too!  If you'd like to order any of the items you've seen here today, you can shop my online store 24/7 when you live in Canada.  Simply click on any of the images that follow to be taken directly to that product.  For a list of the benefits to naming me, Stephanie Nash, as your demonstrator, please visit my Rewards page.
