Shelled napkin fold

Hi there,
I thought I would just share what I have been working on.
I saw this napkin fold card some time ago and knew that I just had to make it some day. We have had quite a few public holidays of late so I finally found time to create.
I saw this idea on stampartic blog the instructions are really great.

I started with my Martha Stewart punches and decided to keep the shell theme. It is the first time I have sucessfully used my border and corners punches together.

After creating all the folds I masked areas, then sponged and stamped them. I also added colour to the edges. I was really thinking of using designer paper, but couldn't find one that really matched the theme at the time.

Inside I stamped the verse and sponged and stamped the edges and layered onto another panel with border made with punches. The belly band was sponged and stamped also and the main image was coloured with watercolour pencils.


Stamps: stampin up, stamp world, stamp it.

Paper: white and mahogany card

Other: Distress ink - antique linen, scattered straw, aged mahogany, watercolour pencils, Ms shell punch, sponge, masking paper, ds tape.

Have a great day
