Fancy Folds - Fanfare Cards

Welcome back to another exciting Fancy Folds blog hop, this month we are doing Fanfare Cards. 

You are probably here from Gina's beautiful blog - wasn't her creation awesome?!         

Here is my project:
I followed the easy to understand YouTube video training from Linda Bauwin, which makes this card fold a cinch! I converted the card to a square card and added an extra mountain and valley.

The base card is thick Whisper White and I scored and folded the card at a variety of widths in order to get the most balanced appearance. The whole card once created was mounted on a square of Mossy Meadow card to frame the project.
This is a side view to give you an idea of the layers. The DSP is Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini - I used the floral vellum for the front, the Pear Pizzazz leaf print for the third and fourth panels and the whitewashed timber for the fifth panel.
The front feature is the Foliage Frame Framelits cut out of Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. It's mounted with a circle of Blackberry Bliss cut with the Layering Circle Framelits and then the top layer is Whisper White card stamped in Blackberry Bliss - the sentiment is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set. The additional foliage around the outside are cut using the small budded framelits from the Wonderful Floral Framelits in Petal Pink and the berries die from Frosted Bouquet Framelit Dies in Blackberry Bliss.
The Third facet is lined with the Floral Romance Specialty DSP as mentioned above. The sentiment is from Part of My Story (the now retired set), stamped in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White cut with the Stitched Edge Framelit Dies mounted on the oval from the Wonderful Floral Framelit Dies pack. You can see that the second panel is actually mounted with a rectangle of Petal Pink card to provide a nice contrast.
The fifth panel incorporates the stamped image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with the Dark and Light Blackberry Bliss, Dark and Light Old Olive, Dark Petal Pink and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.  Again the foliage at the background has been created using the the framelits outlined above - the Wonderful Floral Framelits and the Foliage Frame Framelits. The sentiment is from the Colourful Seasons stamp set, stamped in Mossy Meadow and using the newly released punch from Sale-a-Bration to create the unique shape.
Inside the card proper, the place where you would write your message, I simply incorporated the lattice and leaves framelit from the Wonderful Floral Framelits set in Mossy Meadow. This breaks up the stark white of the sixth layer of the card.
Finally the sentiment is again from the Colourful Seasons stamp set, stamped in Mossy Meadow and highlighted with a leaf cut from the Foliage Frame Framelit Dies in Old Olive card.

I hope that you have enjoyed the project and get the chance to try out one similar at home.

Don't leave us just yet as I am sure you are going to love Aude's stunning creation this month! Simply gorgeous!

Until next time, stay glittery
