Comfy Creatures Tri-fold Birthday Card by Eloise

Hello everyone! Eloise here and I’m so excited to show you my first project that I made. Today I have a fun tri-fold card for you all featuring the new Comfy Creatures and Summer Picnic sets as well as a few other stamps sets from the previous release.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Tri-fold Birthday Card by Eloise Blue (using Comfy Creatures, Sending My Love, Summer Picnic, A Good Egg & Sunny Sentiments).

So for today's card I began with knowing I wanted to do a tri-fold card, just for something a little bit different.  I began with cutting down a piece of watercolour cardstock to 11 ¼” by 5 ½”. Once my cardstock was cut down, I scored each section at 3 ¾” so then once it’s folded up, they are all equal sections. Once that was done, I needed to create different heights for each of the layers on the card. For this I just used my paper trimmer and cut down two of the sides that are folding in and cut them both at different angles so when the card was folded in once again, they would look like hills.

I then moved onto the ink blending. I opened the card up fully and blended first some blue onto the background piece. I masked off each sides of the card to make sure they stayed a nice white. For the blue colours I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and a little Salty Ocean and blended the three together to create an ombre effect. I then moved onto the next layer that folds in and for that I used Mowed Lawn and a little Forest Moss. Then next was the first layer of the card and for that I used mostly Twisted Citron with a little Mowed Lawn. I then took some water on a paint brush and tapped it over the Distress Ink to create a fun water splotch look.

For the images, I used a bunch of stamp sets to create a fun scene. I stamped out the clouds, sun and the bee from Sunny Sentiments, I used the bow and then the eggs from A Good Egg to make some fun balloons, I just turned them upside down and drew on my own bottoms to them to make balloons. I also used the tree from the new Summer Picnic set, the Monkey face/tail along with the body from the new Comfy Creatures set and then I used the hands with the present from Sending My Love since I wanted it to be a birthday card – I love how all these sets work so well together to create a fun scene!

I coloured in all the images with various Copic Markers and then cut them all out. There are coordinating dies for all these images also. I then adhered all of my images onto my scene. For the sentiment I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Comfy Creatures stamp set and white heat embossed it onto some black cardstock. I then adhered it onto the card with some foam adhesive. For a finishing touch I used my Wink of Stella Glitter pen to put over some of the images.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and make sure you check out the blog tomorrow for more inspiration!
