Week 27 – Mango Melody
This Trifold Shutter card is quite easy to make, but it’s all the layering pieces that takes the time to cut and glue together. I am using the Perched in a Tree Bundle with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper.
My card base is Mango Melody, the matts are Basic Black and the patterned papers as mentioned above.
I stamped the bird in Black Memento ink onto Basic White card. I placed the coordinating die over the top and held it down with some washi tape. Before cutting it out, I used my blending brushes to add the colouring; Mango Melody, Pool Party & Petal Pink. This was so that the white border around the image remained white once it was die cut!
I covered the bird with Wink of Stella to stand out even more. Lastly I added some gold Festive Pearls.
The branch is cut from Evening Evergreen card and the floral spray was cut from Basic White card and Petal Pink ink added with the blending brushes. The leaves were coloured the same way and then I added small amounts of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue, allowing it to almost dry, before adding the Gilded Leafing.
The next panel has the sentiment stamped in Memento Black ink and cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The Basic Black layer is one size rectangle larger. I had a small strip of the patterned paper left over, so I used my Paper Snips to cut banners at either end and glued it to the black layer. The sentiment layer is added on Mini Dimensionals.
Here is the card when open so you can see all the panels!
