Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! We are creating a double fold card and it is beautiful!!!
I used the Perennial Essence Suite and I love how it turned out. The little flower piece opens to the right and then the designer paper piece opens to the left! It’s super fun! Also, the flower is all blingy with Wink of Stella. This photo just doesn’t show how amazing this card is!
I started with a card base of Purple Posy measuring 5-1/2 x 7-1/4. So this is like a normal card base but with a little 1-1/4″ piece taken off the front. Next, I layered on the Blackberry Bliss (5-1/4″ x 2-3/4″) and Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (5″ x 2-1/2″). For the inside piece, I stamped 3 flowers from the Floral Essence Stamp Set along the left hand side of a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″). I found that stamping the middle flower first and then the two side ones worked best for spacing!
For the 2nd fold out piece, I started with a piece of Purple Posy measuring 3″ x 6″ and I folded it in half. Next, I layered on a piece of Blackberry Bliss measuring 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. On the 2-1/2″ square of Whisper White, I stamped another one of those big flowers and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used the Blackberry Bliss Dark Marker for all of the lines and accents on the flower. Then I went over it and filled in with the Blackberry Bliss Light Marker. For the center and greeting, I stamped them with Crushed Curry Ink. To finish it off, I added Wink of Stella all over it. #SafeGlitter 🙂
Next, I layered the flower onto the Blackberry Bliss square and stamped the greeting inside the mini card. Make sure the crease of the card is on the right hand side. Then I added adhesive to the back and placed like a sandwich around the left side flap. Making sure it was centered up and down and in far enough on the side so it wasn’t hanging off, I pressed it down! Now you are done creating a double fold card.
