Sneak peek, tri-fold and a triple celebration…

I was recently invited to a party for a triple celebration – a 60th birthday, a retirement and a 40th wedding anniversary – all for the same couple! So I thought a tri-fold card would be perfect as I could put a different greeting on each face of the card.

I used early espresso cardstock as the card base and for inking, together with cherry cobbler – as it was a Ruby Wedding – and the third colour is a sneak peek of one of the new in-colours coming up in the new Stampin Up catalogue to be launched on 1st October.

I love this colour combination! The colours went so well together – I can see I’m going to use this again!

 The sentiments are from two hostess sets – one old and on the retiring list –
and one new ….so another sneak peek for you!

 

I used the scalloped heart of hearts embosslit and cherry cobbler cardstock, run through the big shot, to make the heart toppers, adding a teeny tiny whisper white bow with a mini glue dot.

And just a few rhinestones for a bit of added bling …

I stamped the flourish from the Strength & Hope stamp set from Stampin Up, available until the end of September.

We had a lovely evening with Jan and Mike – they have a lovely family and their son did them proud helping out with the speeches. And the hog roast was delicious!

Thanks for dropping by today

  1. I’m loving this colour combo and the different sentiment stamps – the embossed hearts on the front are gorgeous and using a tri fold card is just genius !! xx
