Concertina Fold Decorate a Daisy Card!

Hi Stamping Friends,

We made this really fun card at Super Fun stamp night!  I always try to teach a fun fold or new technique.

The fold is called Concertina and here's a link to a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers

Just a note, I cut my angle at 2".

I used the Decorate A Daisy #125991 stamp set and a Round Array #129090 stamp set on this card.

The Designer Series Paper is Tea for Two #129311.

Look carefully at the greeting in the center of the flower.  It's a Faux Metal technique we learned to do.

Faux Metal
1.     Ink stamp with Versamark and set aside.
2.     Completely cover card stock with Versamark ink.
3.     Cover cardstock with metallic embossing powder.
4.     Heat powder with the heat gun until melted.
5.     While still hot add more powder over the cardstock. Heat again. Repeat until you have 4 layers.
6.     Heat cardstock again until the powder is hot. Quickly press the stamp into the embossed area.

I used Stampin'Up Pewter Embossing powder on my card stock and I let it cool and re-inked it with VersaMark ink each time. There are 4 layers of embossed powder on this medallion.

I hope you love my card!

Happy Stamping,
