Triple Cameo card

Hello folks!  Here's a card I made to showcase Joanna Sheen's new Cameo stamps.  I was inspired by those beautiful triple mirrors that ladies used to have on their dressing tables.... there's probably a name for them but I can't think of it right now. 
To make it I just folded some cardstock to make a long thin card.  I then measured the length of the spine and made two vertical cuts which gave me three equal flaps on the front.  The centre one I folded in half to make a regular easel base.  The two outer panels I folded diagonally to make the twisted easel bases.
I stamped the images onto blue card and  heat embossed them with white detail embossing powder.  I cut the shape out and adhered to the relevant panel.  I then cut away the parts of the flaps that were showing behind the frame.
I used some DCWV patterned paper on the bottom.  I stamped and embossed some of the corners and other details which I used as the easel stoppers.  I finished off the design with gems, pearls and ribbons.
I hope you have had a great weekend.
Ciao for now!

You always make such interesting cards, Sandra. I know exactly the mirrors you mean, my Mum has one. I wish I had a dressing table for one too but there's just no room!!
I love the Wedgewood feel of these too.
Hope all is good with you and yours.
