My second video shows a few of these new Simon Says Stamp products put into action to create a tri-fold window card.
In this video, I show how you can easily create a tri-fold card of any size out of two notecards. This is a great card design technique… especially with a fun window on the front.
I really wanted a “floating” white sentiment on the front window of my card. Therefore I white heat embossed the gorgeous sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp For To Us stamp set onto a piece of Judikins Embossable Window. (This is a great acetate that doesn’t warp easily when heated.) I put this into the window I created with the Simon Says Stamp Soft Snowfall Die.
I used the center piece of the Simon Says Stamp Soft Snowfall die cut to decorate the second portion of the tri-fold card. I applied lots of Distress Ink to create a night sky… and even masked off a circle to create a soft moon. (You can see the specific colors I used in the thumbnails at the end of this post.) I also added Silver Stickles into the tiny holes of the die cut for added shine.
And last but not least, I stamped a matching sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp For To Us stamp set on the final card opening.
I hope you give a window tri-fold card design a try. It is a great way to get more from your dies… and a great way to create card that is a bit different and fun.
