Vintage tri-fold Project and Card

Hi there everyone, today its my turn on the Artdeco Creations blog with another project created with the new release collection - 
Ultimate Crafts - Artdeco Creations "Rambling Rose"
This paper collection was designed by the talented Australian 
designer "Sue Smyth" and it has been a very popular collection.

Here is my project a tri-fold decor piece.
Capturing the vintage feel in the papers and adding some foiling to the outer edges by using some normal foiling sheets, tacky glue and bone scorer.

Using the papers from the 
ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad.

I cut three panels of the wooden panels paper from the
ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad with the
Couture Creations Vintage Sign Nesting Die C0723956 
Inking the edges - these will be the back of my panels of my project.

For the front panels I cut three more pieces from of the
 ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad .

Using Couture Creations 2Way Glue Pen C0724037,
and a piece of the Couture Creations  Gold CO725355 Vintage matte Foil roll. I gently dabbed some glue around the edge of the papers and place the foil on top of the glued edges.

Gently rubbing the top of the foil with a bone scorer. 
I love the distressed look of this technique and it is an easy way to use foiling without any heating tool.

Once all done - I attached all the three panels together with a some small piece of paper from the wooden panel paper sheet.

Front side with Matte gold foiling edges.

I then cut three panels of the wooden panels paper from the
Couture Creations Vintage Signe Nesting Die C0723956 , the next size down.
Inking the edges - using a Circle nesting die cut a circle out of one of the panels.
I attached them all with Foam tape underneath.

Decorating the outer panels with lace and ribbons
Also team up with the Decorative die - 

Using the stamp set from the
Ultimate Crafts "L'Aquarelle" stampset ULT157796
Ultimate Crafts "L'Aquarelle" paper pad ULT157761
 I stamped the flower from the stampset onto some of the paper pad and added some colour inside the flowers with inks, then fuzzy cut them out.

Adding the flowers and foliage around the edges.

Rubbing some more Glue and gold foiling around the diecuts.

I have also a bonus card that I created as well, using the same technique of applying some glue with the 2 way glue pen and rubbing the gold foiling sheet around the raised edges of my embossed card. Again, it is not completely covered with all gold foiling but it is just a very simple way of adding some gold foiling to projects. It leaves a very distressed and vintage feel to any card or project.
