This is a super beautiful card because of that amazing Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper! I mean just look at that little shiny flower reflection in the right corner. Ahhh, it’s so beautiful! I am loving the new copper foil!!! You might be thinking this card looks fairly plain and simple but just wait till you open it up!!!!
That is the inside!!! This card pops up and stands which shows off all of that gorgeous paper. I always think that cards like these are perfect for someone’s desk, bedside table or hospital room during their stay or recovery, or even to send to someone with a photo on the right side to display in their home. This is for sure a card you will want to display for a long time and not just read it and set it aside! So let’s get started!
You will start with an 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and score it in half on both sides (4-1/4″). This will then create 4 equal squares on your card. Then turn your square diagonal in your Stampin’ Trimmer and score one of the squares from the outside corner to the center corner. You can always use a ruler and Bone Folder if you wish! Now you will fold on all score lines. With the diagonal fold in the upper left corner, you will cut the right side square apart on the score line. For the folding magic, you will fold the diagonal line in half making a triangle in that square, then fold the back square up, the front square up and that last square will fold around. Here is a little diagram to help!
Now it is time to decorate!!! I used the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper for the front and one of the inside panels. Those pieces measure 4″ x 4″. For the greeting on the front, I used a scrap strip of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Love & Affection Stamp Set in Cucumber Crush. I added the banner tips by cutting up the center of the end of the paper and then diagonal from the corner to that center cut line! I went with a basic front since the Designer Series Paper (DSP) does all of the work and the inside is so fabulous as well. I attached the DSP to the right side. For the left side, I cut a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 4″) and added some of the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape to the top and bottom and stamped in the middle with the Love & Affection Stamp Set!
Once you get the folds down, it is a really simple but WOW card!! You can create this card with lots of different looks for any occasion! I love it!!! Here is one more photo!
