Awash In Beauty Fun Fold Card

This is the card I made during this week’s Facebook Live video. You can watch it on replay on YouTube and Facebook. I go live on my Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page every Wednesday at 10:00 AET…you can check to see what time that is where you are at this website.

I CASE’d (Copy And Selectively Edit) this card from Maureen Rauchfuss, and she has measurements in inches on her video. I adapted it for A4 cardstock with these measurements:
• Card base: 14.9 x 21 cm, scored at 7 and 17.5 cm (or 7 and 3.5 as I show in my video).
• Polished Pink layers: 6.5 x 14.4 and 3 x 14.4
• DSP: 6 x 13.9 and 2.5 x 13.9

I decided to use up some of my now-retired 2021-2023 In Color Jewels for the embellishments. Maureen showed how one can colour the Rhinestone Basic Jewels (clear) with the Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend dark marker to make coordinating embellishmentsI think the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds would also be lovely.

I did an “oopsie” when I made my prototype card, and stamped inside my card upside down. Fortunately it was before I’d glued on my outside panels, so I just flipped the design around:

And I had just a narrow strip of the white background DSP left, and decided to use the reverse side as the inspiration for the colours on another card with the same layout:

This one uses Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral for the ink colours, and the Iridescent Pearls that come with the Awash In Beauty Suite Collection for embellishments.

As I mention in my video, purchasing the Awash With Beauty Suite will be enough to earn you one $90 reward in Sale-A-Bration, and put you most of the way towards getting 2, or one $180 reward. What will you choose?
