Fancy Fold Easel Card

Friends of Speedy TV's 

I've used one of Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps' new releases this month as my focal point for this card. 


I love this technique which I learned from Shirl at
 thank you again, Shirl.  

You can find her tutorial here

Here's the photo journey of this card:

Black card stock is heat embossed using Recollections Sparkle Clear Gold powder 

Showing all the various sections of this card cut using Shirl's directions on her blog.
 The bamboo stamp is from MFP's  Wealthy Fish 2013 set.

The fan was fancy cut at the top to extend over the top of the fold

Panels were layered at attached with ATG

The inside sections were attached to the card base with the ATG
Sentiment is from  the Lotus Blossoms 2013 set

The banding was actually cut to fit this lace I had in my stash, layered with a piece of black rat tail which was woven through the "coin" by cutting 2 slots in the image and attached with 1/8" scor tape.

The "coin"  on the banding is from the Lucky You 2013 set

Black liquid pearl dots were added to "stop" the top panel and to keep it upright.
Gold liquid pearls dots were added on the image panel as an accent.
