Today’s card is a simple Fun Fold that would be a great card for anyone. It is all about the milkshake. And who doesn’t love one of those!!
As much as I love the milkshake, I have to share the fold first. It is what shows off the milkshake. And it is a really simple one to do. The card begins with a piece of card stock that is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 5 1/2. But instead of Vertical it is horizontal. Next you cut down on the fold line 1 1/2″ and cut across the front. This opens the top section of the card. You can use any die to create the fun peekaboo opening. I used the layering circles. Just remember to add your DSP to the front before cutting the shaped opening. Now that was easy peasy wasn’t it?
All of the papers and inks are listed in the Supply List at the bottom of the post.
Stamp Set / Bundle
This fun stamp set is Share A Milkshake, with the matching dies of course. Here is the open view of the card so you can see the entire milkshake.
Yummy!! The glass is a two step process to give the shading. The darker area is stamped using Bermuda Bay Ink and the lighter is Coastal Cabana. Being photopolymer, these are so easy to line up. The strawberry milkshake is stamped using Polished Pink. And the straw is both of the glass colors again. The milkshake and straw are both raised to show the definition. Best of all, there is a slit in the milkshake part for the straw to slip into! I love that!
Sentiment and extras
The sentiment is included in the stamp set. But it is one sentiment together. I used the method of covering the bottom portion with tape ( or whatever you have handy) when inking, remove it and stamping. Then I repeated the same for the top portion of the sentiment and then stamped the lower section a bit below the closed layer. That little surprise is a quick and easy way to add to the card. The hearts are included in the set as well. Just as a finishing touch, I used one of the larger Pearls on the milkshake. I must have bling!
