Two Challenges at Once



I'm a little behind in my challenge cards this week, so in an effort to catch up, I combined two challenges in one! this card is using the colors from the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge (pink, green and brown) and the card fold featured on the Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC 221, Tri Shutter Card). I have to admit, both of these challenges were hard for me-- the colors, just weren't three I would normally put together, and the hard part about the special fold (tutorial here), was not the fold itself, but deciding how to fill up some much space! I decided to use a double sided cardstock as my base to help with some of that. The finished & folded card fits inside a regular invitation sized envelope.
Ingredients: Stamps: Stampin' Up! {Touch of Nature, Sincere Salutations}, Inkadinkado, Unity; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla}; DP: Chatterbox; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette}; Accessories: {Primas, adhesive gems, MS butterfly punch, Dazzling Diamonds stamping glitter}.
