Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. A new limited release product that I’m really enjoying is the Blended Seasons Bundle. I used this beautiful new stamp and die set to create a Blended Seasons Tri Fold Window card. Fancy folds are always a wow card, aren’t they? It makes it extra special when I send them to someone to brighten their day. I hope you like this project where I combined the Petal Promenade DSP with a Blended Seasons Tri Fold Window card.

Blended Seasons Bundle
Fancy fold cards are not always a giant undertaking but they can be intimidating. Here is how I approach each project; the finished card will fit into a standard envelope, so…… it can’t be too big a project for me to tackle. Putting it into perspective is a big help. Plus, Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, step by step and loads of photos.
The idea for this project came from the the Stitched Seasons dies. With this card design, I can use a piece of DSP and allow both sides to make an impact on the design. The Champagne Foil die cut accents create nice shiny accents and are a lovely texture. I used the sentiment from Blended Seasons stamp set and stamped it onto a strip of vellum that stretches across the open window design.
Once the card is closed, it lies flat and fits perfectly in a standard A2 size envelope!
Tips for this project
This Blended Seasons Tri Fold Window card design is perfect when I want to send a card that will be more than a card. Extremely sturdy and standing on it’s own, it really makes a statement.
The foil accents are glued to the reverse side of each window opening.
Instead of leaving the back window open, I chose to place a backing. The Tufted Embossing Folder add an added touch of feminine without distracting from the beautiful flowers in the DSP.
