'Thanks a Million' Fancy Fold Card by Sue'

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Sue has created a great card to share today.
I hope it inspires you to get crafty!
This card uses 3 shades of blue card from Core’dinations Distress collection.

1.    Trim Pale blue card to 5” x 10”. Score at 2.5” and 7.5” and fold to make the base gatefold card.
2.    Add a layer of Authentique – Gathering DP over a sea green layer of card stock and adhere to front of gatefold card base.
3.    Die cut 2 Memory Box Loop borders from medium blue card and adhere to the outer edges of the card front.
4.    Stamp the image to smooth white card and using a Spellbinder Labels 25 die cut and emboss the image.  (If 1 is the smallest use die 3).
5.    Colour the image using Prisma Pencils and Zest It blending solution.
6.    Cut the frame from another sheet of Authentique DP, using die no 3 set inside die no 4.  Some re positioning tape is useful to hold the dies in place whilst winding through the die cutter.
7.    Position the die cut image inside the DP frame to align on the front of the card.  Add Zip dry glue to the right side of the frame and adhere to the right hand side of the card front.
8.    Add glue to the left side of the image and adhere to the left side of the card front.
9.    Stamp the sentiment to smooth white card in VersaFine onyx black ink and cut to size. Adhere to top left of card front.
10.    Die cut one each of Die-namics ‘By the Letters’ ‘S’ and ‘I’ from smooth white card.  Trim down the middle of the ‘I’ and adhere both parts over the ‘S’ to make a $ sign.  Adhere this at the edge of the sentiment.
11.    To complete my card I’ve added a layer of DP to the inside adding the shape that was removed when making the frame.
