** 7/19/15 Honorable Mention at 613 Avenue Create! **
Hi everyone! I'm super stoked to share with you today my 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project - a thank you tunnel card. I made another type of tunnel card several months ago for my daughter for Mother's Day but this one is a little different. I'm (still) on a 'fancy fold binge' and when I saw this awesome fold, I just had to try it out! I L.O.V.E. this fold! Stay tuned... I'll be showcasing another one in a couple weeks! ;)
I used some gorgeous Stampin' Up! stamps, paper, inks and embellishments. I absolutely love this floral paper and knew it would make a beautiful project using this awesome 3 Girl JAM ribbon! I used Green Jeans crinkle ribbon from the Saturday Morning Bundle... don't you just love it?!
I stamped the sentiment on a layered panel on the front and embellished it with some pearls and one of my big signature bows.
I cut an oval aperture in the center portion of the tunnel and layered some of the floral paper on each side. I added some tiny pearls to each corner of the center portion for a little interest.
I stamped some flowers and a sentiment on the inside which are seen through the aperture.
Here's a top view of the tunnel construction. I have to say this is one of my new favorite folds and I know I'll be making more of these! ;)
