Elegant Tri Fold Card with Rinea Foil
by Jeanne Jachna
Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! I know we're all going through this tough time together. I'm trying to make the most of it - enjoying a sweet escape while I craft. I hope you are all safe and healthy and trying to find the rainbow too. Unemployment and shelter in place are forcing us to stay home, but I'm grateful that we are together. Better days are coming!
This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together. Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects. The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base. This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet. Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.
I'm usually a CAS gal, but today I'm channeling my inner Pam Simpson - aiming for elegance the way only Pam can!
My card starts with the new Oval Fold Frame. I cut two from light pink card stock, folded them and adhered them to an A2 panel in the same color card stock. If you fold across the oval both the inside and outside of the fold have a clean smooth finish. The 1/4" flap on the border is adhered to your card base panel.
I stamped a sentiment from Friendship and Kindness on an oval that was cut from the Oval Fold Frame.
I embellished the side panels with the Tall Curve Background cut from a slightly darker shade of pink, and the Picket Tall Curve Border cut from Rinea Gold Foil.
Before I adhered the left side panel I attached the cut oval insert to the die cut with washi. When I folded the flap it covered some of the tape I used to adhere the oval to the frame. To give a clean look I cut a second oval to cover the tape on the oval that was exposed.
I cut some Delicate Poinsettias from the foil - I think they make beautiful flowers all year round. I wanted to demonstrate how the foil holds it's shape. I used a McGill Paper Blossoms tool to shape the petals. You can wrap the foil around the tool and create curves, and use the ball stylus to make a "well" in the flower centers.
I hope you'll give Rinea foil a try! It's really like no other foil I've ever used and really wonderful for 3D projects.
