This fun fold card was totally inspired by Stampingleeyours, she has an amazing blog. The card is very easy to make, just cut your card stock at 8.75 x 4.25, then score at 2.25 and 4.5". The embossed piece is a technique called "de-bossing" I inked up the embossing folder with old olive ink, on the raised side. The picture of the hand is actually Amy Celona, who shows how to do this technique. She used craft ink, and that will be my next project. Makes a bit of a mess, however the folders clean up with a little warm water.
The other fun technique on this card, is added glitz. I took a very cheap bottle of pump hair spray, and added a bottle of shimmer paint, including the little ball. It doesn't clog up and adds such a lovely glimmer to your cards.
Hope you have enjoyed your Saturday, and be sure to give these tips and techniques a try. If you do, please let me know how they turned out!
