I totally cased this card from Splitcoast Stampers, Laura Lipe's card! I changed up the panels but this was her design...
This is the card opened up:
Here it is closed:
First I had to get the pattern for this fancy fold. The card is a 12x 5.5 piece of paper, scored at 2", 4", 8", 10" and folded on the score lines. Then I opened it up and turned the paper - making a cut from the edge at 1.5" from the first fold up to the last fold. Turned the paper and did the same on the other side, which gave the center panel. The front of the card has a piece of 3.5 x 4.5 cardstock glued on it. Each of the center 2 panels measure 1.75 x 3.75. I added patterned paper to look like water on the free panels. It appears sturdy enough for a two year-old's constant opening and closing!
Paper colors are Pool Party and white. The pattered paper is an old piece from a miscellaneous pack. Ink colors are, SU Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Real Red for the heart spout and Basic Grey for the whale. I also added some "bling" for the whale's spout and Baja Breeze ribbon at the top. The sentiment "Look who's 2" is PTI and SU's letter die for the name.
I used SU Oh Whale stamp and die set. Just love the way this came out. Thanks so much Laura for sharing!
Next card is Will's Angry Birds for his 6th birthday on June 27th!
