Happy Friday! I have a super fun card to share with you today!! For our last SU! team meeting we were asked to swap cards that used a folding technique. I received some awesome cards that I will share with you, but for today I am going to share the card that I swapped. I didn’t have a lot of time to work on my swaps, so I used a fairly easy fold called the Joy Fold. Isn’t it cute?! The Designer Series Paper on the front is from the Summer Smooches. The flower image on the front of the card is from Button Buddies. I just love this set! So cute and the buttons coordinate perfectly! A little bit of Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine around the vase and the card is finished off!
This is the dimension of the card here. You simply take a piece of 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 piece of card stock and score it at 5 1/2. This creates the flap on the front of the card. I created the inside piece by using the 3rd largest Decorative Label Framelit. When you cut this part out you just want to make sure that your framelit is just above the fold line so that your piece stays in tact. The flower on the front of the card was punched out using the Triple Layer Blossom Bouquet Punch, which sadly is now on the Retirement List! It is currently on sale for $14.37 so if this is a punch you like, make sure to get it before it sells out! You can see all of the retiring products online here. The flower on the front also serves the purpose of keeping the card closed.
Here is a picture of the inside of the card. I used a sentiment from the stamp set Friendly Phrases. I am quickly falling in love with this stamp set and it is now one of my “go to” sets for sentiments.
The colors I used for this card were Summer Sun, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, and Whisper White.
Thanks for stopping by today & have a great day! Kristin
