Fish Tank Tunnel Fold Card

Happy Monday everyone, to start off the week I have this cool Tunnel Fold Card to share which looks like your looking into a fish tank.

Fish Tank Tunnel Fold Card

The idea for this card came from this smaller version from the 1950s

Vintage Tunnel Fold Card

I loved the way it was constructed and decided to make a modern 5″ x 7″ version.

I love the ‘Under The Sea’ die set from First Edition and thought fish tank theme would work well with the tunnel style.

You can purchase the dies below from my Amazon Store Front here, or from Create & Craft here.

First Edition "Under The Sea" Dies

It’s a really versatile die set and something that will never date and always be used.

The cardstock I used was the Rainbow card below and the Unicorns & Mermaids card both by Dovecraft and available from my Amazon Store Front here.

The shine and colours you get from the card are wonderful.

The card folds completely flat and fits into a 5″ x 7″ envelope.

The pattern paper used is called ‘Fresh Feeling’ and from The Works UK.
