My Take on Darlene's 3-Fold Card Design

This card didn't exactly turn out the way I thought it would. Notice I didn't say it didn't turn out the way I PLANNED, because I don't really plan a card. Do any of us, really?

There is oh, so much more color in the card than I thought there would be! And it's cuter, too!

It's my take on Dar's card, and there is a slight problem with mine, although I love the design and wouldn't change it at this point. The problem is, it won't stand up! Oh well...

I used Martha Stewart's punch and fern stamps, and Crafty Secrets Bird Notes set. The brads are from We Are Memory Keepers, the ribbon is organdy ribbon which I distressed with my heat tool. (I do that ribbon is safe from my heat tool!) I used Prismacolor pencils and Tim Holtz' Distress Ink in frayed burlap. The green ink is SU! Old Olive.

The gingham paper is good ol' CTMH, and so is the cardstock...Naturals. I took a punched out circle, and traced around it, cutting out the birds and leaving a moon shape in the background. Glitter dresses up the birds.

Hope you like it. Make sure to try this folded card. It turns out to be a perfect 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card.

Happy Stamping!


  1. This is AWESOME Bev! Even if it doesn't 'stand up' ... it's adorable and my favorite color too! LOVE the folded in front corners to showcase the sentiment! GREAT JOB! Thanks for letting me know and glad you gave it a try!

  2. Thanks Dar,

    The corners are the reason doesn't stand. Thanks for the comment...means a lot.
