Stamp Simply--- Fun Folds!

Hi all! It's Friday, which means it's time for a Stamp Simply Challenge! And, this one is extra fun because I used one of the new Flourishes stamp sets for it! Kind of two for one fun!

Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge was to use a fun fold. Click HERE to visit Sharon's place for all the official details! The card could be anything except your regular old 4-1/4 by 5-1/2" A2 card. It could be standard card size but it had to have some sort of different fold! I thought and thought and decided - If I layer up some paper to create a card without it being standard - that might work! So.... here's a first look!

You might think that looks pretty standard but.... look again! The back of the card is a 5-1/2" by 4-1/4" piece. THEN, the card is created by wrapping a 3" by 8-1/2" piece around it scoring it at the 4-1/4" mark.

This is it from the inside! Ok, getting to the stamps! I used my Spellbinders Labels Two Nesties to create the centerpiece on the front of my card. Stamp the plate and silverware from the You Are Invited Set (brand new set from Flourishes!) in Versafine Black Onyx and cut out. Mat on a 2-1/4" square of Metallic Gold Card Stock. Weave through some black satin ribbon and add some gold self stick nail heads.

The inside was done by stamping the three glasses in a row using Lightning Black Brilliance ink. I also used this ink for the Damask pattern on the front of my card. The shimmer matches the Stardream paper PERFECTLY! It rocks! The saying, "You Are Invited" was stamped at the top using Black Onyx Versafine ink. Here's a closeup of the flourished silverware. So classy looking.... don't you think? Me thinks so!
And, here's a close up of the classy little glasses! They are perfect for this time of year! Love the idea of using them for a dinner party invite!

p.s. I might be down for the count for the next few days... my kiddos took me and hubby to family skate night tonight and, I mean to tell you, I am walking like an 80-year-old after skating for two hours! Call me crazy but I want to go back for more! It was a blast! :-) It was Ellie's (my five year old) first time skating and I wish you could have seen the look of determination on her face! She was bound and determined to get this skating thing down!! Hilarious!
