Totally Tilda DT #72 More than one fold

Morning lovely peeps,
I can't believe how quick these weeks are flying by, I'm already back to tell you about our new challenge over at 
 and it doesn't seem like five minutes since I was telling you about the last one! This fortnight we want you to impress us with your
 More than one fold creations :)

I'm later than I wanted to be with this post but as usual I'm never organised enough to schedule my posts. I will have to be though for my next two as we are going to France this Thursday for ten days holiday and so I'm extra busy trying to make sure that I'm up to date with craft, as well as getting all the washing, ironing and packing done, on top of work for my job and all the day to day stuff too! I'll be meeting myself coming back soon lol!
Anywho, I'm keeping you waiting so I guess I'd better show you my card, this was a no brainer for me this week - my favourite multi fold card is still the double tri-shutter card. As I was in holiday mode I gave it a seaside theme and love the blue and green colour combo.

All the panels are machine stitched. I added a button to the bow on the left hand side with a shell charm beneath. WOC flowers and a pin adorn the right hand bow. All the ribbon is SU seam binding, I use tons of the stuff, especially this Baja breeze colour.

The papers are a combination of BG, raspberry road and nitwit.

DooHickeys - Stitched scalloped lace border and fence
I layered up TH scrollwork die either side of anchor Tilda to create some waves over the fence.
I used Spellbinders Fleur de Lis squares to frame both Tilda images.

Magnolia Anchor Tilda coloured in DI's and Fran-tage added to the top corner and on the fence

Magnolia Tilda in Key Largo coloured in DI's with Fran-tage added at the corners, the shells are something I've had for ages and want to use more of.

The centre of the card where the two tri-shutters join I made into a criss cross card. The pull out sentiment card I left blank but carried the theme through with another Fleur de Lis square and more Kraft and machine stitching.

This shot shows the card as closed as I could get it without holding it lol! 

Hope you like my creation, pop over to Totally Tilda to see my teamies magnificent cards!
