It’s Tic Tac Toe Thursday! Time to pick 3 in a row and play along!  Here’s this week’s challenge board created by the talented, technology guru, Nicole Watt.

If you follow my blog you know I had to start in the center with fun fold!! I decided to go right down the middle and add embossing and circles for my 3 in a row.  Here’s my card.

You  may be wondering what’s the fun fold? Well, this fun fold happened by mistake. I couldn’t wait to get the Tranquil Tulips stamp set and even though it was one of the first stamp sets I ordered from the annual catalog back in June, I had yet to ink it up. So I grabbed it the other day and ended up stamping on the wrong side of the note card.  Ooops! (My fold was on the right.) Well, I am not one to waste so I thought I’d use it to make a joy fold card and as I was playing around I came up with this instead. I’m just not sure what to call this fold?? Backwards Fold?

I love how when you open it you see the gorgeous tulips in full bloom! This is a photopolymer stamp set which makes two-step stamping a breeze.

What do you think would be a good name for this fold?  It looks like a peek-a-boo card (with the circle on the front that gives a “sneak peek” at what’s) inside; however, when you open it, it’s more like a joy fold or a card in a card.  (I’ve made a card inside a card before.  They’re great for when you need a lot of people to sign. You can click HERE to see that card.)

Well, whatever you want to call this card, it’s fun and easy to make with the note cards! The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the circle on the front. Next, I embossed the front with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. The inside is just a Whisper White Note Card adhered to the card base.  I love the Stampin’ Up! note cards!!! They are already scored which makes it quick & easy to create. I used Fresh Fig and Old Olive ink. I stamped the background stamp first and stamped off once to get the lighter shade then stamped the detailed stamp on top. The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases. This is a great stamp set with different sayings for the front of a card that go with sentiments for the inside too! Here’s another look at today’s card with the matching stamped envelope.
