Crazy Crafters December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, thank you for joining us and we hope you are enjoying our virtual hop so far and that you are learning new techniques or gaining inspiration along the way.

You should have just left stop number 6 on the Crazy Crafters Hop -

If so, you are right on track. if not there is no need to worry you can set yourself back on track using the full blog line up at the bottom of this post to move along from blog to blog so you don't miss any of the amazing creations from all the talented ladies in the Crazy Crafters team.

This is my first time participating and I am so excited to share this experience with you all :) This months blog hop theme is your favourite 3 colour combo. We were aloud to use Whisper white and 3 other colours on top of this, so I used my favourite combo of Black, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.

I had so much fun putting this card together and hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. I have been wanting to try a tri-fold card for sometime and I just couldn't resist trying it out for this blog hop :)

I used this youtube tutorial by Splitcoaststampers for the tri-fold instructions and also took inspiration for placement of some of the elements of the decoration from this card too.


Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White and paper from the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series 
Express Yourself (Only Available as a hostess reward) Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
World Treasures Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
Gorgeous Grunge Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
Framelits Circles Collection , Simply Scored, Stampin' TrimmerStamp-A-Ma-Jig and Big Shot (This project would be easier still with the magnetic platform but I don't have one yet) 

Thank you for your time in viewing my little contribution to the blog hop and I hope you gained some new idea's along the way.

Now it's time for me to send you on your way to stop number 8 on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop -

    1. Thank you so much Carlina I absolutely adore these colours most of the time I need to force myself to bring some different ones out for a play :D

  3. Wow alright - what a stunning card! I would never have thought to do the circle at the front of the tri-fold card. It has come up so well.

    1. Thank you Kylie! was so thrilled to join in the blog hop and wanted to make it special! It took me ages while trying to figure this card out to decide on the circle, I wanted to use the peacock but it just didn't look right on a square or rectangle so I bit the bullet and tried the circle so glad it worked out!

  4. Great choice of colours. Very unique.

    1. Thanks Alex this has been my favorite colour combo for ages I just love purples and turquoise together!

  5. You're so talented Sarah!! The trifold card is amazing, and the colours are spot on!! X
