Welcome to week 43 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Smoky Slate from the Neutrals family.

This gorgeous Symbols of Fortune Designer Series paper is so stunning I wanted to make a card that allowed me to showcase the 6 foiled sides that also feature Smoky Slate.

A screen card is the perfect type of fancy fold for this Asian-inspired DSP, so I designed a screen card using an A4 sheet of Smoky Slate cardstock, making it narrow enough to fit inside one of the new Slimline Envelopes.

To make the card base, trim 2.8 cm off the end of a piece of A4 card stock, then score and fold the cardstock at 9 cm and 18 cm. Cut 6 foil layers measuring 8.5 x 19 cm and adhere to both sides of the cardstock base as shown below. I didn’t have enough gold foil so I used silver foil instead.

To make the “feet” of the screen card I used the Label Me Lovely punch. Fold the card up and punch through all three layers at once so the feet align when the card is folded flat.

The DSP screen fronts measure 8 x 18.5 cm – there are 6 foiled patterns in the Symbols of Fortune DSP, so I used one of each design. This is the reverse side of the card – if you wanted somewhere to write a message you could add a panel of plain white cardstock to this side of the card.

The “happy birthday” sentiment is from Celebrate With flowers, stamped in Smoky Slate and die cut using the Ornate Layers dies.

I love how this vertical sentiment and the proportions of the Ornate Layer die both perfectly match the dimensions of this slimline card!

A scrap piece of Basic White cardstock was die cut using the same Ornate Layers die to create a matching address label for the front of the slimline card.

This fancy fold is a wonderful card design to send to someone who likes to display their cards as it stands up very well – it really does look like a mini screen!

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
