This card may not seem any different than other cards but it is. I just cut off a little bit of the card front and let the focal point hang over. You can see a bit of the inside of the card which is super cool!
I got this card idea from fellow stamper, Terri Gaines! After seeing this idea I feel in love and did a few exactly like her’s and then changed it up a bit like this one! I used a different piece of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and added Calypso Coral Enamel Shapes!
I started with a piece of Mint Macaron measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Then I folded it like a regular card base and cut off 1″ from the front of the card. See…just cut off a little bit! This is the peek-a-boo part that we now get to see the inside of the card! Next, I added a piece of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper measuring 3″ x 5-1/4″ to the front panel. I didn’t do it in this sample photo but I did add a piece of Whisper White to the side of the card (4″ x 1-14″). This really makes the card POP more and your greeting on the inside is easier to read!
Now for the focal point! I cut a piece of Mint Macaron (3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″) and Whisper White (2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″). Using the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set, I stamped the large flower in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the outline in full strength and the solid flower stamp after stamping off once. Be sure you are stamping at the top of the Whisper White so there is room for the greeting down below! Next, I placed this onto Mint Macaron towards the top! Using the Whisper White Baker’s Twine I wrapped it around and tied it into a bow!
To finish it off, I added a few Calypso Coral Enamel Shapes. Terri used the White Perfect Accents! There are so many different options on colors to use depending on the piece of designer paper you choose! I added the focal point to the card by placing 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals along the left hand side and placing it on the card. You want to make sure the dimensionals don’t fall off the front part of the card and seal it shut!
I just love this card concept and plan on using it again for another card style! If you would like to see another sample using a similar concept, check out this one! Do you like making basic cards or ones where you just cut off a little bit or fancy folds? Let me know in the comments below!
Have an amazing weekend and I’ll see you next Monday!
