Triple W Fold Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cool Triple W Fold card! This is a special card that I made for my granddaughter that is officially one years old today! Her birthday party was this last Saturday and I was able to drive to Mississippi for a few days to celebrate her birthday!! I really wanted to go all out when I made this card, and when I found out that the theme was unicorns, the Myths & Magic Suite was a no brainer! The basics for this card is very easy, so let’s get started!

The card base is actually one sheet of card stock, 8 ½” x 11”, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”, in Bermuda Bay:

To connect the two pieces together, I used a 1” piece of Silver Foil, scored at ½” and adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive. When these are connected, it is a typical 4 ¼” x 5 ½” card base:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, I used Memento Ink to stamp the unicorn stamp from the Magical Day stamp set. Then I used Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers to color in:

I used the Large Letter Framelits to cut out Happy Birthday from the unicorn paper and I cut out Happy Birthday again with the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper in turquoise. I adhered the glimmer paper to the back with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and positioned it so the glimmer paper was sticking out slightly from behind:

I used the cloud framelits from the Magical Mates Framelits and Up & Away Thinlits on the turquoise and iridescent Myths & Magic Glimmer paper and the Silver Glimmer paper:

From the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP, cut a piece of the unicorn paper to 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere on the front of the card:

For the inside, use the cloud DSP and cut four pieces, two at 4” x 5 ¼” and two at 4” x 5”. The two bigger pieces of DSP are adhered to the front and back inside and the two smaller are adhered to the middle pieces with the Silver Foil connector:

Next, cut two pieces of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP at 1 ½” x 11”. I used a Sponge Brayer and colored with Bermuda Bay ink, wiping off the excess ink with a paper towel. These pieces are scored at 2 ¾’, 5 ½”, and 8 ¼”, fold and burnish making at W:

I adhered the letters with Mini Glue Dots towards the bottom of the letters and spacing them so Happy is on one and Birthday is on the other:

To put the inside together, I cut out some of the unicorns from the DSP and adhered those with Mini Dimensionals and then adhered the clouds throughout the inside. The strips of DSP are adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive:

The front sentiment is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut out with the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits, the sentiment from the Number of Years stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink, the background stars from the Magical Day stamp set in Pool Party ink, and the Large Number of Years Framelits from the stamped and colored paper and the turquoise glimmer paper. The number and circle are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals:

Since this card is thick and doesn’t lay completely flat, I used the Envelope Punch Board to create my own envelope using the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP in Pool Party, the Layering Labels Framelits, some left over unicorns that were cut out, glimmer paper, and the Balloon Banquet Punch:
