TIC Day #2 - Tuesday's Inspirational Challenge - Three Way Baby! Submissions

Look at Tejal's beautiful tri-fold card. I love that window portion of her card. Isn't it great! Tejal is a wonderful gal from India. . .can you believe it. . .the world is stamping, just like us here in the US and Canada. Tejal is a wonderful trooper participating in my card challenges! I really appreciate it. Be sure to stop by her blog site "Creating New Expressions Everyday". She has wonderful card creations to share with all of you!

This is the inside of Tejal's tri-fold card.

Hey Everyone. . .check out Monika's tri-fold card. Beautiful, isn't! I just love her card design, especially the image of the Paper Trey ladybug. Isn't it pretty. Looks like Monika's card has a top fold. Check out Monika's blog site "M.A.D. Stamper" for other great inspirations. Monika makes such beautiful cards and she participated in my last TIC too! Fabulous. Thank you Monika for participating again.

Hey it's Jen again! She made this fabulous tri-fold card! Gosh I love all the pretty summer colors she used! The bee stamp is the cutest. I think that'll be the next stamp I'll buy. Jen always makes such lovely cards. Be sure to stop by her blog site "Pieces of Me" . . .she has a RAK Club that she started. I decided to participate! Sounds like fun. As always, thanks Jen for participating in my TIC. Your cards brighten up my site!
This is Jen's card opened up!

This is my submission for my TIC. This is a tri-fold card because it has 3 panels. I'm really having fun with my own challenge. . .haha! It "forces" me to come with different types of cards when I normally go the easy route and make a regular A2 card.
Anyway, this card was created using the "Big Buckle" Technique. . . Click here for the tutorial on SCS. Try it out. . .it's an easy card to make and it's fun!
To create the slot, you either need to cut it yourself or do it the easy way and use the SU Word Window Punch. It's a fabulous punch and I use it for all sorts of projects.
Not much stamping with this card. I cut out one of the flowers from the DP so it would match the backround and used that as my focal image. . .the rest of the card is basically cardstock and designer paper.

Card Details:

Stamp: K&Co "Special Moments"
Cardstock: SU Only Orange and Positively Pink, DCWV designer paper
Ink: SU Pixie Pink, Only Orange
Accessories: SU Word Window Punch, Round Corner Punch, Dots, Dashes & Checks ribbon, JoAnn large brad

This is the card with the buckle removed from the slot. It reveals the focal point in the center.

This is the card opened up completely.

Here is the sketch for the card.

Whoohoo~ Check out Gabby's tri-fold card. Wow! Isn't it awesome! I love the scallop oval shape that she used and that Bella is so cute. Gabby is the group manager of "Handmade Cards with Love" a card-making and stamping group site that I'm part of .
