' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Seeing double

Tuesday 21 August 2018

Seeing double

Some more seaside inspired makes... This time I used special folds cards to double my stamping domain so I was able to use 1 image on each side :

First a classic 3 fold:

and the "back"

The 3 fold cards uses Crafty Individuals CI-284 'Life's a Beach Girlfriends' as the main images and I embossed in white a sentiment and seashell border from CI-272 'Seaside Treasures' stamp plate.
Close-up of the focal images:

The second shaped card is the latest rage, called "the impossible card", and if it sounds difficult it really isn't. There are plenty of tutorials online so I won't go in the details, but I tweaked mine so I had a taller central panel to fit my image, both sides of CI- 283 'Seaside Friends'.

Here's a side view:

Then front and back:

The papers used throughout are also from Crafty Individuals, Book 6 - The Seaside and the stamped images have been coloured with dye ink on glossy paper.

Thanks for coming by,
Both cards are entering the Unikostudio challenge.


  1. So gorgeous Christine, love the double the stamping idea on the card.

    Such a shame that you are on holiday and can't be a GD for FSC but I hope you are having the best time ever. Not a shame that you are on holiday only that you can't join FSC ... lol

    Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x

  2. Beautiful cards! I love the seashell stamp plate and colours you used for the panels and the focal images are wonderful 😁. Wishing you a happy new week! J 😊 x

  3. Seen this card earlier and had to pop over to say how much I like it. Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

  4. Elles sont vraiment délicieuses ces deux cartes, quelle belle utilisation tu as fait de ces tampons CI et papiers !!!!!!!!!
    Comme je n'ai encore jamais fait ce type de montage pour ma part, je ne vais pas m'y risquer... Je manque toujours cruellement de temps pour suivre des tutos désormais pour le montage de cartes ou mini-albums, snif. Difficile de tout concilier... En tout cas, tu dois maîtriser la technique maintenant, ça se sent !
    Dommage qu'on soit loin ;-)))
