Sometimes making a regular card is very difficult for me.  More the idea than the execution!  LOL!!!  But today I have gone a step further and made what I call a Double Card.  It is simple and easy, just takes a minute to get the placement correct.  Please let me know what you think.

Southern Serenade, 145921

 

If you can tell from the photograph, there is an oval cut in the front layers so that you see the flower on the inside of the card.   When you open the front flap, you see just the flower, and then it opens again to show the sentiment and where you sign.  That is why it is called a Double Card.  The next two photos show this probably better than I explained it.

 

 

So after all of that, I think it is really an unusual card and a nice way to showcase a larger stamp.  The most difficult part of this card is lining up the layers so that the ovals are properly lined up.  I found that securing the top and middle layer together with temporary adhesive and then cutting is the best.  I cut the size of the black layer first.  Then cut the larger oval in just the white layer.  The die leaves a small indented frame around the opening and this is very helpful in lining up your larger oval.  I then repeated the process with the black layer and the base layer by temporarily adhering them and cutting the same size oval from the base layer.  Theoretically all will now line up properly….. Hopefully!!

The background stamp is Sahara Sand and is stamped off first.  The flower is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with markers.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you liked this little bit different card.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.
