Double Tri-Display Card

Time to bring you my my latest card invention! Another World Exclusive (I believe!) 

A total re-design of my uber-popular Large Square Double Display Card to incorporate 6 panels with Large Letters die-cuts on... 

Amazing what happens when I have a supply of 12"x 12" card again.... thanks to the Falling in Love Cardstock Pack (which I didn't realise was 12 x 12 until it arrived in the special Demo Bundle that Stampin' Up! put together for our pre-orders!! Oops nearly missed it....)
So by popular request - most of my classes this month are concentrating on Mother's Day cards ( as Mother's Day is 26 March in the UK - rather than the the 14 May in the US) & Wedding/Wedding Anniversary cards  - and the Falling in Love papers & Suite called out to be used. As well as some specific requests for Dragonflies!

I hope to be able to re-make, photo and write up a tutorial in the next week - or two... but in the meantime... a bit about the decoration of this version...
Dragonflies care of Dragonfly Dreams... left hand one cut out of watercolour paper... watercolour washed using the Aqua Painter with Blushing Bride and then Sweet Sugarplum and popped onto a solid Copper Foil die cut. Right hand one copper embossed, wings and body stamped with Blushing Bride - and then wuiped off with a tissue paper before cutting out the solid shape
Mother care of the Large Letters dies and Very Vanilla cardstock...and then 2 of the letters (O,E) stamped in Sahara Sand using the flower stamp in the Window Shopping stamp set. And 'S at the far right hand side (of the R) care of Brushwork Alphabet

Copper embossed greetings of Happy & Day care of the one Happy Day stamp I mutilated (cut in half!) in the spirit of easy stamping!! From the Perfectly Wrapped set


  1. Hi Amanda, what a stunning card. I can't wait for your tutorial because so many people's names can be shortened to fit on six panels but not always four. Look forward to whatever you post next. From Janet in Melbourne, Australia 🇦🇺

  4. Great card Amanda, I love all your projects. I tell all my customers to check your blog for fabulous card ides. I'm going to give it a try right now as I already have two bases made for the original design. I'll see if I can work out the extra scoring. I'll be staying tuned for your tutorial to see if I got it right. Thanks for sharing your fab designs with us!
