Just Add Ink #518 | Just Add 'T'

Hello there stamping friends! I hope that you are having a fantastic week and a fabulous day! It's Friday, so that means it's time for another Just Add Ink Challenge
This week it's one of our much-loved letter challenges - Just Add 'T'. You are only limited by your imagination as to what you could do to incorporate the letter 'T' into your creations.

I've gone with a fun fold card for our 'Just Add T' theme - Triangle Trifold Card. Say Triangle Trifold 10 times and I'm sure you'll get tongue-tied! I found the tutorial for this card HERE on Splitcoast Stampers if you want to make it also.  The finished card ends up being a 4" x 4" square, so if you don't tie a large bow on the side, you can still put it in a regular envelope to post.

I've started with an Early Espresso base cut at 4" x 12" and scored at 4" and 8" on the long side. Here's where things get a little tricky, to get the triangle fold you need to score the right and the left flap on the diagonal (from point to point) making sure the diagonal score on the left and right sides both go in the same diagonal direction. Prefold on all the score lines and fold together so that the 2 triangle flaps on either side meet in the middle.

I've decorated the front of the card with products from the gorgeous mega-suite, Wonder of the Season, from the Stampin' Up! 2020 Aug - Dec Mini Catalogue.  If you love the traditional reds and greens for your Christmas Cards and Christmas Projects then this is the suite for you. I've layered Shaded Spruce and Garden Green Cardstock on the front and then added on top of that some of the 'Tis The Season DSP with the gorgeous green star pattern. On top of that, I've also added some of the woodgrain DSP from the In Good Taste DSP pack that is found in the Annual Catalogue. The woodgrain pattern adds to the rustic, vintage feel of the Wonder of the Season products.

When making any card its fun to make it more special by embellishing the inside as well. Use the same products that you've used on the front of the card makes for a beautifully coordinated look.

 On the front of the card is the beautiful Shaded Spruce Argyle Satin Ribbon to hold the card closed. This stunning ribbon also comes with some Gold Cording for the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo pack. When these two items are used together it makes for a stunning, festive look. So pretty!

Over the ribbon is one of the labels from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I die cut the label out of Shimmery White cardstock and then left the die on the die-cut piece to create a 'border'. I then sponged over the die-cut label with Sahara Sand ink for a soft sponged look. Over that, I've splattered some Clear Wink of Stella for a Shimmery, Glittery look. Don't all Christmas Cards need some shimmer?
To finish the card off I've layered some bits and pieces from the stamp sets, dies, and DSP from the Wonder of the Season Suite. The 'Merry Christmas' comes from the Poinsettia Palace Stamp Set. The Merry Christmas is perfect to stamp and then heat emboss and then to cut around the words.

Please head on over to the Just Add Ink Blog, where you can find the rest of the Design Teams projects. We hope that you'll come and join us in this week's Challenge for Just Add 'T'. Can't see what you will come up with!
