Beauty of the Earth Card

 Hi Everyone,



Today I have made a triptych card using the beautiful Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and the Bark 3D Embossing Folder from the new Annual Catalogue. I love this style of card and it's one that I go back to time and time again and it looks different every time.

Materials

1 piece of thick basic white 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and a scrap for the sentiment approx 3/4" x 4"
1 piece of cinnamon cider card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment mat approx 1" x 4 1/2"
3 pieces of designer series paper 1 1/2" x 3 3/8" and a 1/2" x 5 7/8" strip for the inside
A piece of bumblebee ribbon approximately 7"
Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
Pansy Patch stamp set
Bumblebee ink
Bark 3D embossing folder
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
2021-2023 In Colour jewels
Trimmer
Simply scored
Bone folder
Snips
Multipurpose adhesive
Dimensionals

Instructions

On the long side, score the thick white card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base (landscape).

Run the piece of cinnamon cider card through the machine using the Bark 3D embossing folder.

Arrange the 3 strips of dsp on the embossed layer and adhere in place leaving equal borders around and between them.

Add the ribbon around the middle of this layer and secure on the back with some sticky tape.

Adhere this layer to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment on the strip of basic white and then punch both ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Punch both ends of the cinnamon cider strip as well and then adhere them both together.  Add to the card front, over the ribbon using dimensionals.  Add a couple of jewels to add some bling.

Add the 1/2" strip of dsp to the inside of the card and job done! Another quick and easy card.
