Simply Elegant Tower Fun Fold

 Hello my friends! I hope you are all having a good day! 

Today's card was made for a gal on my team. It will be her anniversary on the 27th of this month. I am so glad to have her on my team and look forward to when we will be able to get together in person to have meetings and stamping.

I decided to make a Tower Fun Fold card thinking it was something she would like to try. This card was based on a similar card that my team leader, Amy, shared with us at a Zoom meeting last month. I wanted to use the Simply Elegant stamp and coordinating DSP because I knew that this is her favourite paper in the new catalogue.

This Tower Fun Fold is a different way of folding your card base to get a card that fits into a regular A2 sized envelope. I started with a Basic White Thick card base. On the two sides, I added a strip of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the  Parisian Fluorish 3D embossing folder.

On the center portion of the card, I added a piece of Basic Black cardstock. On top of the black cardstock, I added a piece of the gorgeous Simply Elegantly DSP. 

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Jet Black Staz On ink. I then cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. Then I stamped the flower image from the Elegantly Said stamp set using Versamark ink. I added Copper embossing powder (from the Metallics set) and heated it using my Heat Tool.

Behind the circle with the stamped images, I added some silver trim from the Simply Elegantly Trim set. I wrapped the silver trim into three circles and attached it at the back of my sentiment circle using tape. I attached this circle to the center of my card using dimensionals. 

To finish the card off, I added a flower image that I cut from Basic Black cardstock using the Poppy Moments Dies. I also added two Opal Rounds that I coloured using my Black Stampin' Blends.
