More Fun Folds - the High Tide Tunnel card

Love this High Tide set (it's hard not to love lighthouses when you live in Maine!)

The front card is flat and has pretty simple stamping, just 2 colors, Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue with the Daffodil Delight layer.

Inside it looks like you look through a tunnel or a porthole!

You need two 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ sheets of card stock. The inside “window” piece Balmy Blue is scored at 2-1/8, 4-1/4″, 6-3/8″.   The outside piece is whisper white 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and not scored prior to stamping. 

Die cut a window in the center of the Balmy Blue window piece (I used the Layering Circles Framelits). 

Make a Mountain fold and stamp. 

The “base” piece is stamped on the inside before being folded in half.  

I did a watercolor wash look with sponged coastal cabana on the top portion of my card and I stamped off the water stamp with Balmy Blue ink then sponged it with a sponge dauber. Again in light coastal cabana. Stamp the birds and the sun. You'll see that I used my grid paper to remind me where the middle was (it's not yet folded).  And my stamping goes past where it will show and you can look down into the card.

The front layer is 3 ¾ x 5 stamped with the light house, water, birds and sentiment.   The Daffodil Delight is 4 x 5 ¼.   Adhere these layers together.  Fold the white card in half and put the lighthouse on the front. 

For the inside:  Adhere the left panel and the right panel of the window piece to the base piece. 

What do you think? Will you try it? 
What will you put in your "porthole" or tunnel??? What about the dragonflies? or some designer paper??

If you wish to join us for fun folds, RSVP quick, just 1 place left :)

Happy fun folds, MaryKate
