Today’s card style is one that I used for my first ever workshop back in 2012. I haven’t created this card for some time – it’s another great card fold that uses our Designer Series Paper (DSP). As Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end I thought I’d use some of the Flower and Field DSP. It has a colourful design on one side and a plainer one on the other side.
I CASED this design from Dawn Olchefske. It uses a half sheet of DSP and is best used with papers that don’t have a definite pattern direction. If you do have a direction you just need to double check the direction before cutting. Hopefully you can see what I mean in this card here – I had to make sure my words were going across and not up and down 🙂
The paper measures 5 1/2″ x 12″ and is scored at 2, 4, 8 and 10″. The card base is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/4″ with the insert being 3 5/8″ x 5 1/4″.
To decorate the inside I used a die set that I have really only used the words in the set. The Well Written dies also include some images and it goes perfectly with this paper. The image is die cut in Granny Apple Green with Pool Party flowers to coordinate with the sentiment on the front. The Daffodil Delight butterfly image is also from this die set.
I decided to make a second card – you can never have too many birthday cards. I’ve kept the base as Daffodil Delight but used the Flirty Flamingo from the paper as my accent. The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment is from the new set Happy Thoughts.
The inside decoration uses the same die but die cut in Just Jade which is the background colour for this paper design. The sentiment and mat have been die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies – these are also part of my ‘go to’ dies.
If you are interested in making a card in this style why not get some friends together and we can make it. Contact me for more information if you’re interested.
Well that’s all for now. Have a great weekend.
