Fancy Fold

A little time agao I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire demonstrating a Bridge fold card and so I thought I would try it. I have worked out a couple of sets of dimensions which will fit into British envelopes. This one is for a 150 x 150 mm envelope. The joy of these three dimensional cards is that they readily fold flat for mailing.
I began by making the card base and then searched for a set of heart dies which could make a frame to bridge the gap across the front. I found these from Little B amongst my stash. The Mr & Mrs die is from Kaisercraft, although I think it is now discontinued. It was just too small to attach across the heart so I cut a piece of acetate to put behind the heart on to which I could attach the words. I used an embossing folder from Couture Creations (which co-ordinated really well with the foliage sprig from Sizzix,) for the back panel. To complete the card I added a twinkle of Glamour Dust on the heart and the sentiment and added a few tiny pearls as berries. The edges of the front flaps were cut with a border die from Stampin' Up.

  3. So exquisite, Chrissie! I love white on white for a wedding card and your embossed background and pearl berries add a touch of elegance to this stunning 3D card!
