Summer fun with HIT and Paper Temptress Week 2!

I have been seeing the tri fold card everywhere anymore and I love the look of it!  So (I cheated a little bit, there isn’t any 12 inch paper included in the package so I had to cheat a little bit, just a little bit!) I pulled out a sheet of the 80# Heavenly White 12 x 12 and followed the tutorial in the link above (well kind of)!  I cut the 12 inch sheet 5 1/2 inch x 12 and then followed the cutting directions.  Now the directions add DSP and you know that I just can’t do that LOL so I decided to do a HIT collage card!  The images that I have stamped come from HIT# 84 Graceful Sillhouettes, #129 I Love Silhouettes, and #101 Classic Squiggleys.  I stamped the images with Versamark and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I had really been wanting to do more with this technique for a while and this was the perfect time to use this technique!!  Then I took several distress inks and colored the paper which revealed the images also.  Love the look, can’t say I am real fond of the colors that I ended up with but all and all I am very pleased with this card.  You are definitely going to see me using this tri fold card design more.  I am not a one stamp designer.  I like telling a story with stamps and this format gives me more space and a good flow to tell it in!  Below is a view of it opened up and showing the inside of the folds!
For this design I used the 80# Heavenly White 12 x 12 sheet but am adding the 120# Heavenly White 12 x 12 sheet to the store by next week so I would suggest using the 120# for this card but that is just my opinion! PaperTemptress’s Heavenly White (which is my preferred cardstock for copic markers, it doesn’t bleed at all!) is now carried in 80#, 100#, and 120# so whatever weight you are looking for PaperTemptress has it!!
