The fun theme challenge this week at Our Creative Corner is to create a "fancy fold" card. I love cards with different folds so the only difficult part was to choose which fold to use to make a card to .
It has been a while since I made a 'Spring Card', so I thought it was time to dust off the template, the embossing template and the 3D decoupage sheets. The white square was embossed using the old fashioned light box and embossing tools. There are 4 different designs on each of the metal embossing templates, so the possibilities are endless. After the design was embossed, small stencil brushes were used to apply colors from a different dye pads. The center of the square was removed using a craft knife and ruler. Then the white embossed, colored and cut square was adhered to the blue cardstock.
The 3D decoupage sheet was fussy cut and then layered in the middle of the square. Some of the images are 5 layers thick. Since foam tape would make this way too high....clear acrylic caulking was used between the layers. It adds just the right amount of dimension without the added bulk. Gold liquid pearls and stickles were used for a touch of bling in the corners and flower centers. I opted to use a few silk flowers on the base so as not to detract from the main focal point. The supplies for this card were purchased at Kamya.
