Art Impressions 2014 Try-folds launch!

The Art Impressions design team is launching the new 2014 Try-folds stamp sets today!

If you haven't seen these before, scroll down for a good look, and be sure to visit the Art Impressions blog to see the design team's take on the different sets.  As you check out my post, I think you'll get the idea that this is a bit of a time consuming style of card!!  But the end results are outstanding, and your recipients will be in awe of your creative talents... so without further ado, here is Messy House TF (Sku#UM4452):
Now, this is definitely the most difficut card on the planet to photograph... so bear with me.  This is the completed card, folded and tied with twine.  This is how it would appear out of the envelope.
Once you untie the twine, you open first the left flap, then the right...
And finally here is the inside of the card.

Here are a few shots to show how it's put together.  You start with a rectangular piece of cardstock, and score it to create 3 panels.  The image of the lady and the sentiment are stamped in the center panel, a little higher up. 
Flip the sheet over, and stamp the two other images close to the score lines as shown.  I added glue to that center rectangle and glued it down to my base pieces.




 Lucky for you - all the instructions are included in your stamp set!  Measurements, positioning etc.  That's it for me today!   This week's challenge on the Art Impressions blog is to make Operation Write Home cards in honour of their Memorial Day weekend blog hop - you can link up your creation here.
Happy stamping everyone!
