Carols Of Christmas Folded Corner Card

by Joanne James22. August 2017 10:00

Today I'm sharing my second card in a row for the current colour challenge over at As you See It:


As I mentioned in yesterday's post, this was the first card I made using these colours and the Carols of Christmas bundle - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Carols of Christmas - I used the other large sentiment from the Carols Of Christmas stamp set on my card today, again inking the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant and Real Red, using the rock 'n' roll ink technique to blend the colour across the centre of the stamp for a two-tone effect. I layered my stamped panel using my Layering Squares Framelits for a little extra colour and detail.

A Fancy Fold - The real interest on today's card is the fancy fold. This is called a Folded Corner Card, although I adapted the fold to the centre as I wanted a wide border that was equal and opposite to the inside edge, where I decorated the border with stamped and cut out poinsettias.

Paper-Pieced Poinsettias - For the opposing corner, I used the detail of the poinsettia corner thinlit and paper-pieced the flowers, berries and leaves, finishing off with a few pearl centres. It was a little fiddly, especially the berries, however worth it to show both of the poinsettia pieces.

So what do you think? Which one do you prefer - yesterday's card which you can see here if you missed it or today's? I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I have the second of my technique classes this month this morning so I will be busy. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with another project - perhaps I'll share something from today's class. Until then, happy stampin'!

You must really be enjoying these colours! At first glance, this looks a straightforward card and then you start noticing all the details... wow! The patience you have to paper piece the pointsettias! Fabulous! Thanks for joining us a second time at As You See It.

It's great the way you've embedded those poinsettias in the cut outs - very effective and I love Folded Corner cards! Lovely job! Thanks for entering our challenge again at As You See It Challenges!
